My photo
Manila, Philippines
Just a manic 17-year old photographer(of sorts) from the Philippines running a photoblog(also of sorts) to pass the time.

Excuse my disappearance, school has started and I'm trying to start early with my schoolwork. For the past 2 weeks I've been studying my butt off for things we haven't even taken up yet in class. So far it's earned me one perfect math quiz which is something because last semester I almost failed math.

Now, since I don't have the time to go online everyday for things not related to schoolwork, e-mails, facebook and 365 has been on the backburner, but what's new with that. I do still take photos everyday. I've just decided to post them all in a group instead of one at a time. No one ever said you had to post one a day...or maybe someone did. This is just me rebelling (fight the power!)

My latest 10 photos come as a series I thought of. I've always loved bokehs and taking photos in the night in the middle of traffic. So I combined them both. This has been my journey for the past 10 days.

It has been rain and shine, day and night. In a place so busy where people barely have the time to stop and just take a deep breath. Where vendors are hard at work and sleepy priviledged students(like me) count the seconds till the final ticking of the clock. Where street children walk along overpasses, hoping to receive alms. Where bus drivers wait lazily in the vans, all the while exposed to the sun and it's rays while their riders are in the comfort of their classrooms. Where poverty and privilege meets. No one sees this, not even me. All I can see are blurred images. Lights dancing around the streets.

The song that helped inspire the series.

I had an awesome shoot on Wednesday with the people from my May UP shoot. I had the most amazing time with them and it was all a mess but it was a fun mess.

I can't put the photos up yet but here are some outtakes. These are all SOOC(straight out of the camera) by the way, I just edited their sizes, added a watermark and compiled them all so if they look plain to you(as compared to my other photos), I apologise. I still quite like them though.

Benevolence in silence.

My net has been down the past few days and my life's just been a tornado of crazyness as it always has been. This sembreak has attacked me with lots of ideas and random acts (like jumping in a pool of rain water, leaves and disease with all my clothes on...not the best idea.) Sadly it's coming to an end soon.
