i will never, ever forget this photo.

i took this when i first used a dslr, ever. prior to the trip, i thought i was already armed with techniques i have read from various photography references in the net. so i was really disappointed when i could not get the correct exposure!!! i insisted on using non-auto modes kasi pa-pro kunwari hehehe....

i thought i'd be going home empty-handed. i was even contemplating on how to explain to bin that i have given up on photography, our future bread and butter (mwehehehe).... when this stingray smiled upon me. :)

i think i only got 5 decent photos out of the 1gb cf i used up, but this photo definitely made my day. :D

it was only later that i learned that theathers, museums (haller, aquamuseum!), concert halls are some of the most challenging venues to take good photos because, more often, they lack of good light source. heheh palusot.

taken using Scout.

this guy reminded me of pepe smith. hehehe

he's one of the rockabillies in harajuku. wearing their thick, mostly leather boots, pants and jackets, they dance and entertain passersby even under the strongest heat of the sun.

still from my harajuku portfo taken a month ago. i have not been out to take photos for some time because of unrelenting rain on weekends. :( my fingers are starting to itch... hopefully, sun will smile on us again this coming weekend.

enjoying every adventure together...

finding good spots...
looking for subjects...
bonding moments...

worth the price :-)
