This online shoebox contains random pictures, notes, whatever. I've been a professional writer-photographer for so many years now. It's a damn good excuse to carry a camera around.

Down the road from the swanky Bayleaf Hotel, just a block away from Intramuros' pretty tourist strip - Manila displays its natural grit:

Had some interesting discussions on street photography lately.

Quiapo, Manila:
Quatros Machos

It's a photography genre with a rather broad definition - one that inspires countless discussions, rants, arguments, and occasionally flames on the internet. I'm not gonna try to get into the thick of it all. For me, street photography shows genuine, interesting moments on the streets. These can be candid, or posed to an extent. As long as it gives us an interesting slice of life out there. That's about it.

Intramuros, Manila:
Karts

I'd rather keep it broad. Less constrains, more creative possibilities :)

Speaking of old things, here's an old picture taken almost a decade ago:

Solo Flight

Yup that's me, taken during one of those dusk-till-dawn shooting sprees with Erman. This must have been Ektachrome Elite 100, shot with my long-gone EOS 50 mounted on my long-gone Velbon video tripod.

Calle Real looks exactly the same today. One of these days I'm gonna publish this photo :)
