My Mother

This is another picture of my mother (who I love) taken with Olympus EM5 and 45mm f1.8 (love love this little gem of a lens).


Calaguas - Square Photos

Third time in Calaguas.  Though the beauty of the island and the beach seemed to remain the same, I felt not inspired to shoot pictures.  In fact, I shot only about 145 photos and a good number of those are bursts shots so that brings the total to about a hundred or so – very small number considering that on some location I could take about 500 (even more than a thousand frames in Batanes). 550 more words


Calaguas - Rays of Sunshine and Crashing Waves

Last weekend, we went to Calaguas Island (known locally as Tinaga group of islands).  It was the third time there for most of us, first time for some.  232 more words


Boracay - Fire Dancers

Firedancers have been a fixture and institution in Boracay, much like the blue-sail boats, banana boats and all-you-can-eat buffets.  There are several groups of firedancers in Boracay (some performing in the customer-only bars and restos) but the most famous group perhaps is the Boracay Phoenix Firedancers.  96 more words


Boracay - My Father on the Beach

Another photo taken in Boracay.  This is my father frolicking in the beach.

I overexposed this photo intentionally (I wanted to use f1.8) and thought I’d do exposure correction in post.  40 more words


Boracay - Paddlesurfing

Another activity you can do in the island paradise of Boracay – paddlesurfing (with a paraglider way way back in the background).
