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 […]

Buhay Jeepney: Monday na naman bukas.

A jeepney driver resting his head amidst heavy traffic along Pedro Gil St. in Sta. Ana, Manila. Photo taken last year, October 27, 2016. * * * To say that traffic in Metro Manila is beyond redemption is an understatement. Traffic here is so bad, it let’s you cycle through all the five stages of grief, after which […]

P. Burgos Street, Makati City

Street photography at night in P. Burgos Street, Makati City

That night I went out and took photos in the red light district of Makati with fellow street photographers Jonathan and RJ. We spent some time around these telco workers who were installing what I think was an LTE radio antenna that night in the corner of Makati Avenue and P. Burgos Street in Makati. Jonathan was […]

Eastwood POV Street Photography – VLOG Episode 002

I can’t seem to say ‘Eastwood’ without letting out a tiny smirk. Got out of the office early and somehow ended up in C5 Road in Libis, QC and shot some photos while waiting for some friends who were busy shopping. I’m using music now from our friends in the local blues scene. The song […]

Chinese New Year, Binondo, Manila – VLOG Episode 001

I finally mustered enough courage to face the camera and produce my first vlog. Please like and subscribe or let me know what you think through the comments. BTW, I’ve been meaning to make a 10-minute video but as I edited I started cutting out entire parts of my footage as I found it boring. […]

Plaza Rueda, Taft Ave., Manila

An old woman selling various beverages to people on their way to work in front of Plaza Rueda, Taft Ave., Manila. For the past three days, I’ve been at the hospital attending to a family medical emergency. And every morning, I’d walk into the plaza across the street and would get breakfast while watching people go about the morning […]

Paseo Palisoc Circle, Manila

Life imitates art, in this case old-timer, bikers captured in what, to myself, looked like a Michelangelo painting. These three elderly men were having a lively discussion about biking, their loved ones and other random topics. Today I walked a total of 12,098 steps, a distance covering 7.5 kms from Pedro Gil St. to Paseo […]

Monday morning walk, Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig

The breakfast club. Brgy., Kapitolyo, Pasig. I started shooting with the Summicron again on my way to work this Monday morning. It has been a while since I last used this lens so I plan on shelving the Super wide Heliar for the next few weeks. It feels good to shoot at 35mm focal length […]

Fire breathing. Binondo, Manila

Last year, I told myself that I will arrive much earlier to be able to take more photos of this year’s Chinese New Year celebrations compared to last one. I ended up spending the entire day taking photos, but I got sick almost immediately after and totally forgot about it. It was by the end […]

Streets of Manila: Fishball Vendor

Almost everyday at work, we eat at this place (from where I was standing when I took this photo). The scene is almost the same everytime I am there. A vendor passing by while other people smoke, chat or have drinks after they finished eating. Taken using a Leica Summicron-M 1:2/35mm ASPH lens at 1/500s f/8 […]
