For this time I was chatting with … Continue reading Panagbenga 2019 Street Dancing Parade

Panagbenga Night Scenes 2018

I had the urge to go out and enjoy the Panagbenga night scene just before the festivities end. It can be daunting going around in Baguio alone, specially with a camera set up to shoot some long exposures. I just had to satisfy my urge. When that switch flicks on, it’s hard to put of, except when my camera runs out of batteries. My route … Continue reading Panagbenga Night Scenes 2018

Philippine Military Academy, view from Mt. Kabuyao

A few hours before this scene happened I didn’t really expect anything spectacular to  come out. The scene was gloomy and cloudy. It hopeless. Deep down I was praying for a miracle to happen. The sun rose and still nothing. Only dry colors and an even gloomier feel for the day.  Just when we were packing up and getting ready to leave, this happened. It’s … Continue reading Philippine Military Academy, view from Mt. Kabuyao

Reflection, A rainy day in Baguio Cathedral

This picture was captured back on October of 2011. We were doing a yearly photo walk for the Scott Kelby world wide event. Sadly there was a typhoon at that time.

We had to get on with the walk and capture images that best describe the beauty of … Continue reading Reflection, A rainy day in Baguio Cathedral
