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 […]

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.

That look though…

A jeepney driver and his partner plying the streets of Ermita, Manila. Taking that late afternoon stroll looking out for Jeepney scenes and I run into this young couple. It was as if the entire scene unfolded in slow motion as they passed me, their eyes in sync looking at the lens. I just had […]

Father & child. Baguio City public market.

A father clutching his child while walking past vendors at the public market in Baguio City. I took this photo while spending time off after a just concluded event where I opted to stay behind for an extra day to relive what used to be my everyday life in Baguio a few years back. Something […]

Sampaguita vendor, Quiapo and the Sony RX100V

A sampaguita vendor takes a moment to relish the sweet, thick fragrance of the fresh flowers that she sells at the plaza right outside of the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, Manila. * * * I took the plunge and downgraded my gear from full frame to 1-inch sensor. A few months […]

Dagonoy Market. San Andres Bukid, Manila

A child sprints and jumps over an empty crate which doubles as part of an obstacle course put up by children playing just outside Dagonoy Market in San Andres Bukid, Manila. Taken last July 8, 2017. First posted on my Instagram. EXIF is available on Flickr. * * * I’ve recently been going on impromptu […]

Buhay Jeepney: Are we there yet?

A commuter looking out the window of a jeepney bound for San Andres, Manila. Taken last December 17, 2016 near Robinson’s Place Manila in Ermita. * * * I’ll be honest with you. These days I’d mostly take an Uber or GrabCar when getting around the Metro. Only because most of where I need to […]
