Back to my roots

I have the opportunity to return back to my homeland the Philippines next month. I can’t tell you how excited I am to shoot some travel photography with the canonet exploring the life and city where I spent most of my childhood 😀 I haven’t been back to visit for 6 years and I am so glad I have discovered the joys of film photography to help capture some memories. 

I will try to post some rolls whilst overseas to keep the blog moving. Hopefully more places develop in the Philippines and that film is abundant. Anyone know if its easily attainable there? I’m planning on doing a photography project which I hope to turn into a community/blog if all goes well. Stay tuned. I will be welcoming community feedback and contributions 🙂  Not quite ready or wanting to do a 9-5 office job, staring at a computer and drawing repetitive lines just yet!

 

PS: CAD monkeys is the proper term for a graduate architect 😦

  1. Hope you have fun and the new reality is as good as your memories! Don’t forget to take a digital camera as well, because film is fine but digital is more flexible.

I hope the recent flood did not affect you. I was able to experience it whilst I was in Olongapo and it was terrible. So much damage and loss. I pray no other typhoon comes and adds to more damage and the City is recovering.
