Buhay Jeepney: Taft Ave. corner Vito Cruz St.

Whenever I’m on foot or commuting during the evening rush or at later parts of the night, I’d take photos of jeepneys and the drivers or passengers. It has become a habit the past few months and it soon evolved into a series which I will soon start sharing and putting up on a special […]

Taft Ave. corner Vito Cruz St., Manila

Taft Avenue corner Vito Cruz Street, Manila

After a meeting on that scorching hot afternoon of March 23, 2017, I find myself walking along Taft Ave. from Quirino Ave. and taking photos on the way. The weather felt like it was in the 40s (Celsius) though it was probably around 33-35 degrees that day. I end up in the corner of Taft Avenue and […]

How to not get mugged while vlogging at night – VLOG Episode 004

I go out a lot at night shooting street and this is one of the better routes that I normally ply in the dark. It’s hard to do street photography and be completely discreet, plus film yourself and speak at the same time, so I did not shoot along the way except for a few […]

Reunited with the Sony A6000 – VLOG Episode 003

After one or almost a year and-a-half, I’m using the Sony A6000 again. Still feeling a little separation anxiety for not having my everyday camera with me, I went and met up with my brother to get my Sony A6000 which has been with him since last year. It was weird finding the camera a […]

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. […]

Breakfast at Plaza Rueda

A street vendor prepares breakfast for this family of three, with the morning rush hour traffic serving as a backdrop to their daily routine. Plaza Rueda, Ermita, Manila. Breakfast from street food vendors, a cup of instant coffee and the occasional cigarette, seems the practical choice for the everyday, masa commuter, at least in these parts. […]

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 […]
