A repository of my thoughts, what I capture around me, my consciousness in digital form.



Juan Luna St., Binondo, Manila

This man was actually making his way through the crowd while doing some muted strumming that only a fellow musician could recognize from a crowd. I first heard the percussive notes and quickly panned to my left and then found myself right in front of him, took the shot, exchanged smiles and moved on. Juan […]

Shooting street and totally forgetting about the photos.

Looking for opportunities where I can play around with light is always a thing that I’m on the lookout for. Most of the time I’d go out, walk a few kilometers, shoot and not get a single decent photograph. Somewhat disappointed, I’d end up shelving all my files for review at a later time and […]

Quiapo church.

Quiapo church.

I love how this makes me feel like I am looking at a painting. It’s as if time stood still with every one deciding to pose for a photo. Captured at 1/250 on one bright afternoon back in 2017, this photo was basically shelved and forgotten until I decided to run through my old photos […]

Still house cleaning

There’s a lot to clean up and fix on archondigital.com before I can begin development and migration into a new theme.

A lot of this has to do with me being busy (I’ve given this excuse here numerous times too) but that really is what it is, I […]

Life is a blur.

One of those unplanned walks where I end up shooting on my way home after an afternoon of meetings. It was a Friday and I was having a difficult time getting a ride. This photo is part of a self-project/series I am working on called Buhay Jeepney where I take photos of everyday people commuting using […]

Sale! Carriedo, Sta. Cruz, Manila at night.

A vendor selling street food in Carriedo Street, Sta. Cruz, Manila. Taken last September 1, 2017. I haven’t been out much on the streets since getting the Sony RX100 Mark V, but this photo I took at night just blew me away. This image is from a one-inch sensor, a lowly, point-and-shoot camera.
