The first bouquet I have ever received in my entire life! Tulips, my favorite. Thank you.

This is why I love photography, it enables me to immortalize precious memories like this. Apparently, film photography surprises me even more.


°30: Coffee Project



Efiniti UXi Super 200, Canon AE-1

Here are one of the few shots I salvaged from a missing USB where I saved the scanned copies of my most recent developed rolls. Sigh. Dwelling on the brighter side, I am glad that I managed to save these shots taken at Coffee Project in Quezon City.

Coffee Project has multiple branches in and outside Metro Manila and no two cafés look alike. I like the cozy and quiet ambiance of this place–perfect for coffee and a good book match up. I hope to see more of the other branches in the future.

It is good to be back here on WordPress!


Solid Gold 200, Pentax Espio 120SW

Borrowed this vintage Polaroid camera from my grandmother’s brother-in-law. It’s amazing how analogue cameras withstand the test of time. I bet that this one is still working, just have to find a polaroid film that goes along with it.

Beneath the beautiful camera are books written by Filipino authors, whose works I have encountered during college says upon majoring in Literature.

What can I say? Books and cameras are always a lovely sight!

One of the things that make me love photography is its capability to freeze and relive memories for me to cherish. This photo was taken while having a morning coffee at Vigan, Ilocos Sur.

We went there during the Holy Week and almost all the transient houses and hotels are fully booked! So we had to weave through all over the place and luckily found Casa Arcellana. It was a simple, yet well-kept transient house and the people are courteous and accommodating. Having lovely tea cups is definitely a plus!

Looking at this photo makes me smile, because I remember the good conversation that transpired during this moment. B and I were having coffee, while waiting for the others to finish preparing for our day’s sojourn around Ilocos Sur.
