A Quick Stay at Baleh Boble Guest House

When covering weddings out of town, we normally get housed at places where we are at least comfortable to take a little nap, charge batteries and later take a bath. This time we head over to Banaue in Ifugao Province. Banaue is also home to one of the wonders of the world which is the Banaue Rice Terraces. Although we were not able to take … Continue reading A Quick Stay at Baleh Boble Guest House

Panagbenga 2019 Fireworks display

This years Panagbenga 2019 was a realization for me. If you have covered this event for a couple of times now you’ll be bound to try something new at one point. In the past I was already contented with the usual spots and going there was an obligatory thing. But for this year I wanted to try something new. My usual spot was somewhere near … Continue reading Panagbenga 2019 Fireworks display

Taking a chance at Kiltepan Peak

Haven’t written anything for a while or the more correct term is I haven’t finished writing the other things I wanted to share. For now I’m just trying to recall my most recent encounter with one of Sagada’s tourist spot. Now you might be thinking that the place is cliche and has been associated with the Filipino Movie: That Thing Called Tadhana(Destiny). But it’s not … Continue reading Taking a chance at Kiltepan Peak

First Light 2018

Every year from 2010, my photographer friends from Baguio Photographers Club would go ahead and take Photographs of the first sunrise of the year and after that would have a hearty breakfast somewhere in the city (we always ended up looking for restaurants since most of them are closed during the new year morning opening up only during the afternoon.) This has become our tradition … Continue reading First Light 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

Sunset at the Strawberry Farm

This photograph was taken at the La Trinidad Strawberry Farm back in November of 2011. The garden plots were being readied for the plantation of the strawberries at this time. November here in the Cordilleras is the time when the temperature starts to drop, but the rain comes to a hold which is the ideal climate for strawberries to grow. Dry and cold. The initial … Continue reading Sunset at the Strawberry Farm

El Garahe Studios La Union getaway: Sunset at Urbiztondo

The view of the sea always gets me into a trance. The sound of the waves crashing is like a song putting me at ease. The wind carrying a little splash cools the warm day that passed. As the sun sets, its color sedates me and brings me to a halt, appreciating the canvas presented. Signaling yet another day finished. As darkness engulfs the light, … Continue reading El Garahe Studios La Union getaway: Sunset at Urbiztondo
