Being part of the LAAF eventz was one of my best experiences. It was so refreshing. I didn't have a DSLR back then, so all the following pictures were taking with a Samsung NV8 (which my sisterz had given me for my birthday that same year).
P.S. The festival lasted for a month maybe, so you can imagine the number of photoz I took.. you've been warned :-)
Yah, let's start off with that ;p
