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 […]

Help Eugene Geronimo a.k.a. @Ugin_x, a fellow street photographer, in his battle with cancer

My friend and fellow street photography hobbyist, Eugene Geronimo, a.k.a., @ugin_x, was diagnosed in October of last year with nasopharyngeal cancer. We used to go and shoot the streets of Manila together before he became ill. Eugene’s battle with cancer is not yet over and he needs our help now more than ever. Eugene recently […]

Noodle man

Noodle man. Ongpin St., Chinatown, Manila. Had a blast shooting with another Instagram user who took the time to meet up and shoot street with me earlier. My phone says I walked a total of 14,059 steps for 11.3km and took six flights of stairs. Seems pretty accurate from how my feet are sore now. […]

Singalong, my hood.

This is the neighbourhood I grew up in. I go around and take photos around all the time but rarely publish any of them. I had the privilege of moving away during my teen years to study up north, in Baguio, it was one of the best decisions my parents made for me. Studying up north kept me away […]

Tap Station. Adriatico St., Ermita, Manila

They have a good selection of home brewed beers, their stout is one of the best in the area. Served cold, I occasionally find myself stopping by for a drink due this ridiculous summer heat that we’ve been having these past few months. Taken using a Minolta MD W.Rokkor-X 28mm 1:2.8 lens at 1/100s f/4 ISO 4000. See image […]

Plaza Miranda. Quiapo, Manila.

This is the first time I took my 15mm lens for a walk. It was one of those Sundays where I didn’t have any plans set, so I decided to take photos from Quiapo to Escolta, then from there to Plaza Mexico, Intramuros and into Liwasang Bonifacio. Ran into a lot of interesting subjects too. […]

Carriedo Again

Took a little walk down Quiapo and Sta. Cruz again. I managed to take this photo before the security guard at the LRT station could stop me.Taken using a Voigtlander Super Wide-Heliar 15mm f/4.5 Aspherical III lens at 1/800s f/11 ISO1600. See image on Flickr for EXIF.

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 […]
