Love the street : Love chaos

There's no rule. There's no emotion. The street won't love you back.
Shooting the streets with names that doesn't matter and constantly changing.

Taken with LC-A/Holga 135bc from September 2007 to February 2008.

Beautifully imperfect

These flawed shots should have gone to the trash...but If given a second look, each have their own uniqueness worthy of a frame. Much like life, which is flawed and uncertain, these pictures tells me that many things don't usually go my way. So, instead of throwing them away, learn to give it another chance. I'm surprised how beautiful it turned out to be. Forever loving the beauty of accidents and imperfections. Forever loving films. Forever loving life. Random shots taken with Lomo LC-A from everywhere.

Accidentally alien eyes

Accidentally out of focus

Accidentally taken

Accidentally reddish

Accidentally pinkish

Accidentally exposed many times

Accidentally night lights

Accidentally looking

Accidentally happy

Accidents happen

Wasp attack

Hundred plus Vespas gather for the Angono Vespa Jamboree. Ang cool ng mga Angono boys. Also met other Vespa heads. Daming beer at astig mga pulutan. Sarap dumalaw dyan.

Beetle mania

...well theres also Combi, Karmann Ghia and all sorts of VolksWagen cars all over the place. Seven hundred plus VW's, old and new and modified and customized, they all gathered in Quezon City Hall, wanting to be included in the Guiness World Records.
What a sight! Parang ang sarap magkaron ng beetle.

The zero year

Sarap maghanap ng mga lumang pictures. Rewind to my baby life.
Can't imagine myself being a baby. But yes, ako ito. zero year old, walang kamalaymalay sa mundo na baby.
Bwahaha, nag second look ako parati sa picture na ito at nagtatanong, ako ba talaga ito?

Ako nga.
Without a doubt.
Ang lapad ng noo.
At bakit parang lobo ang pisngi ko?
At least, hindi ako mukhang adik:-D

My mountaineering past life

Been there, done that...but I want to go back there again.
I found some old negatives from my climbing years. Scanned it and tweaked it a bit in photoshop and tadahhh, memories from Mt. Apo to Mt. Pulag to Mt. Halcon to Mt. whatever mountains and trails and rivers I've set foot on, forgot the names though but, the memories are still intact. This is 1997 to 2000.
I should do this one more time.

The prettiest, the coolest date ever. (click image to enlarge)

I owe this girl a super dooper date

Whenever she gets a star on a test, or an O on her card sheet...Zeph and I go on a sooper, dooper date. Or otherwise known as an all day stroll at the mall, play in time zone, eat what she likes, tambay sa toys r us or sa bookstore, do anything she likes till she literally falls asleep. It's a sort of a reward for a job well done, which works on her to give her best at school. Yesterday when she finally received her report card, she's got an overall grade of an O (outstanding). (Daddy happily clapping hands) And she's on the honor list and she'll receive a certificate...Cerificate? duh, it's a Miriam thing daw sabi ni Yayo (whatever it is, kasi dati nung time ko, ribbon ang ibinibigay sa public school). And they'll give it next school year, 'pag grade two na s'ya. Huh? duh!:-) Anyway, dad is so proud of you Zeph (Daddy happily clapping hands again). Buti na lang mana sa daddy.
