Rise and Fall

I had this cool opportunity to shoot in a “battlefield” a while back. Of course, by battlefield what I really meant was a football field rigged with timed,well-placed, and very visible pyrotechnics; scattered with reenactors in complete and authentic Philippine Sout and Japanese soldier paraphernalia . It was for the annual reenactment of  the Battle…

Finish Lines and Jumpstarts

Shot for my friend, Tipay’s, finals at SoFA (School of Fashion and the Arts). Since we were shooting bridal, there was no better place to do it than where it all started, our grounds at the UP College of Fine Arts, where everything was just a little dreamy. She pooled some friends to shoot, to…

On Photos

I went on editing overdrive the past year, applying every kind of filter, effects, and toning to most of my photos (a new superpower I acquired from work). This year though I’m ready to ditch it all and go back to my roots. Nothing beats bare sunlight on lines and planes, the natural punch of…

Where the Wild Things Are

Yay, first post of 2012!

It’s famous as the setting of Survivor France, and has since also been the setting of Survivor Serbia and a bunch of other Survivor franchises. It’s a fourteen-hour trip by land from Manila, which to my surprise, wasn’t as…

Flying Rainbows, Floating Cottonballs

So it’s been a while since I was last here, despite the abundance of photos. Don’t ask, I have no excuse for the backlog either. Anyhoo, following the lazy day spent at Mimosa, we woke up before daybreak to meet the airing of the balloons. My tito and cousin had passes and it only took…

The Paths We Take

This was the second year the family spent the entire weekend at Angeles City, Pampanga for the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. Unlike last year though we spent the entire Saturday bumming around, instead of diving into the frenzy at the actual event. After considerable eating, and Duty Free shopping on their part, we resorted to…
