Just one small step back from the usual hobby/toy post. Today is Maundy Thursday here and one of the activities we usually do on this particular day is Visita Iglesia. Basically, it is visiting seven different Altars of Repose from seven different Churches. These are just a few of the photos that I took today. (Shots taken using Lumix LX3 in High Dynamic Mode) Continue Reading

Event: No. Gray. Areas. Here.
Artist: Mei Tayengco
Medium: Japanese Ink
I had a wonderful evening! It was great to hang out with Aimee, Kate, Emrys, and LC again, while at the same time meeting new people like Mei, and Pat, and Camille, and Ervin (?) and his cool portable twin flash strobe setup which I absolutely love and is apparently completely compatible to my LX3.
Thanks to Aimee for getting me involved. I loved shooting pictures. If I had Ervin’s rig, there’d be more photos in this gallery. Thanks to Mei for the awesome artwork on display. I absolutely loved going back to each of these works and shooting pictures of them. I wish I could own one of your works someday. Props to you, Pat and the two awesome ladies who helped you make this night possible: Aimee and Camille.
Possibly, the next time I’ll be at Ludos would be the April 24 event. ^_^

Saw this rainbow outside my window this afternoon. It was longer when I first saw it. It significantly shrank by the time I found a decent shooting angle from another window. And by the time I was done shooting, the rainbow had already completely disappeared because it had started raining again.
Large version download from my deviantart page. Wasn’t able to adjust settings properly since I was rushing to capture this moment.

My deviantID. Shot by my brother, post-processed by me. Need to make sure the proper people are being credited.
Sooooooooo yeah. It’s been quite some time since I last uploaded stuff into my hardly-used Deviantart account. But these past couple of weeks have brought back the fun in shooting and post-processing photographs that I’m loading shots in dA too, instead of just in Facebook and Flickr. Well, that also simply means that if you’ve seen my Flickr page or my Facebook albums, you’re not missing much.
I just find it interesting that I haven’t been this eager to share my work since…well, back in grade school. Hope it lasts. If not, then that’s one more account to gather dust when the magic disappears.
But does this mean that I’ll shoot more and more “normal” photos and less and less of toys? Hell no. It’s just raining like crazy outside so it’s tough to take out the toys and shoot in natural light. But damn, when that Puchi Nendoroid Vocaloid set comes out, every place I go would have a shot of those babies in it. That’s fo sho.

My dad dropped by Ateneo High School this afternoon to talk to someone there and I just so happened to have my camera with me. So I decided to shoot some pictures of my alma mater. Nothing special. Just some shots to add to the nostalgia when I was walking around. It was interesting walking around with my younger brother. He was walking through a campus that he’s very familiar with since he currently studies there and I’m walking through a campus I used to study in nearly a decade ago.

So I figured perhaps I’ll be needing a logo for my photos and other works as well as my blog and I decided to take a shot at it. Of course, my logo has to contain most if not all the colors that I’m quite fond of. So here’s what I came up with.
I can already sense someone who’s going to say it looks like some other logo he or she came across on the internet. Well, this is what came to my mind and I didn’t even look at other people’s logos. It’s a flower with camera’s focal point. I’ll be using this to watermark my shots from now on.

Tried going completely manual on my DSLR. Interesting thing is that it tells you automatically whether the picture you’re taking is going to be underexposed, just fine, or overexposed. Here’s a shot I took of one of my orchids at home. One has some processing included. The other is raw.

This kid already knows how to ham it up for the cam at age 1.

So finally, to the last leg of this series. These are photos taken from my trip to Switzerland. The first is a shot of the alps while standing atop Mount Rigi near where we were staying in Baar, Switzerland. The second is a lakeside shot in Zug before we had an evening meal in a good pasta place in the old district of Zug. The last shot is the moving Lion Monument in Lucerne.
And so concludes the 3P3P series. Hopefully, next time, I will be showing you pictures of the places here in the Philippines. Corregidor? Intramuros? We’ll see.
Till the next set~!

I enjoyed making the first batch of 3P3P so here’s another set.
These are photos from my trip to Munich, in Germany. The location is Marienplatz and it is a shopping street in that area. It also has two beautiful churches: St. Michael’s Cathedral which is run by the Jesuits and Women’s Church which was destroyed during the 2nd World War.
