#330 Stalking First Light
As is our tradition when the current year rolls to an end, we went forth to stalk our last sunrise of the year, in a place we've never been. We wanted to be around a body of water to multiply dawn's reflections. Check. We wanted to shoot into the horizon pe...

#329 Colorful Watermelons
While combing the countryside for landscapes, we often run into interesting folks busy making a living. Photographing folks-at-work is of particular interest to us. Aside from the insight of how the rest of the country make ends meet, we feel certain some o...

#328 Cameo in the Landscape
Last week, I shared a postcard I took in Virac Catanduanes, where Mount Mayon made a most unexpected appearance on the horizon. So while we're still on the topic of cameo appearances, today's postcard taken last year might be of interest. The story started ...

#327 Pareidolia
Pareidolia: seeing what isn’t there. Over beer, someone told us about this place called Talisoy beach in Virac Catanduanes, where a huge rock by the sea looks like something that's not supposed to be there. Really? And off we went... It wasn’t initially app...

#326 Off the Beaten Track
"I can see a small tributary down there. And where it meets the sea there appears to be a small fishing village beside it. You think that might be a good place to stalk dusk today?" "Oh why not?!!" That's the kind of conversation that launched a thousand sh...

#325 A Gentle Wind
Earlier this week, we lost someone very dear. He was a simple man, yet strong, pious, and inspiring. He touched many from his pulpit. He loved his family. But most of all he loved life. He will be dearly missed. A gentle wind had come and passed. Where do w...

#324 Silence is Golden
In the wee hours of dawn, you can be surrounded by humanity yet be pleasantly alone. In Tabaco City in Albay, we hauled ourselves to a small fishing port that extended into the sea. Standing on the edge of that port, we found a dramatic view of Mayon volcan...

#323 Storm on Biri
Your destiny meets you on the road you take to avoid it. (Sifu) To be outdoors during a storm is scary enough, but to also be on an island surrounded by treacherous water? Having read many a traveler's account describing the wild & swirling sea around Biri ...

#322 Vanishing Tattoos
There comes a time when you need to put your camera to good use. Photographing landscapes or stalking twilight, well they are good uses too. But there's one that's time-sensitive: a chance to document a vanishing culture of our times.  We were in Anunang in...
