Black and White’s where it’s at

Film scanning prices have soared (from 75php to 200php, wtf!) and it bums me out. I should really shoot more black and white film, and digitize with a dslr, or set up a darkroom and print directly to eliminate the need for high-cost scans.

Or you know, just shoot purely digital?

But hmm nahhh I love film too much

National Heroes’ Day – Million People March throwback

Today is National Heroes’ Day, a perfect time to post these pictures taken exactly a year ago, during the Million People March. It was the height of the pork barrel scam—a scandal where government funds appropriated for localized development projects are just going to ghost organizations and therefore, to the pockets of a greedy few. Outraged, tens of thousands of Filipinos gathered to Luneta (Rizal Park) to express indignity and to call for the abolition of the pork barrel. Today, key players of the scandal, Napoles and the first three senators on this list have been detained, but this pork barrel issue is far from over.

I met up with my friends, because those that protest together, stay together. 😉 It was a perfect time to reunite because all of us wanted to join the march anyway.

Three tries and I still couldn’t nail the kicking shot haha.

Salutes to these guards! Takes real dedication to remain that steady in this heat.

Beautiful architecture while looking for a place to eat.

The cast minus me, after watching the light show at Luneta. It was a fulfilling day; but we’re still not done with you, Napoles and co!

Tour of the Fireflies 2013

I had been feeling stuck with my work recently, so I had the itch to post something that screams ‘motivation’. And what’s more motivating than 14,000 cyclists biking around 7 cities in sweltering Metro Manila, to promote biking for clean air? As an avid biker, I excitedly joined the annual Tour of the Fireflies last November, organized by The Firefly Brigade. 37km is the longest I’ve ridden so far in one go. 🙂 It was exhausting but claiming whole roads for a couple of hours was a blast.

Bonifacio Ave. Bridge. Most of the pictures here were taken during the Marikina City leg, because what can I say, I love my city!

Yes, we can co-exist with cars. More bike lanes, please! And decent ones at that.

Now I need to untangle myself from my demotivation, and cross that finish line. :<

I’m not really happy with these pictures; I find the colors washed-out and they lack the pop that I usually get from Ektar. I most probably messed up the exposures (too overexposed?). Nevertheless, writing this post is therapeutic! 🙂 Have a great rest-of-the-week, everyone!
