St. Paul University, Manila

Lately, I haven’t had time to go out and shoot. And if you check my lomohome, you’ll see pretty much the same thing: my workplace, St. Paul University, Manila. It is a good thing that I have this article to show it off.

St. Paul University Manila is a tertiary Catholic educational institution and is a member of the St. Paul University Systems. Its campus is located at the heart of Manila, in the busy district of Malate. This institution is being run by the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres. This year, St. Paul University Manila is celebrating its centennial founding year.

The university is not the big at all, still, there’s a handful of things that are worthy of my lomographs. I like taking photos of its corridors, especially in the afternoon or early morning when they are still free from busy students.

The campus is also home to a number of animals; most notably, cats and pigeons. I often run after them just to take their photos.

One of my favorite things to photograph is a beautiful stained glass depicting St. Paul at the turning point of his conversion to Christianity.

Of course, my co-faculty members have their fair share of lomographic limelight every time I have my camera with me.

I already have a reputation among my students as the instructor who always brings a camera everywhere; so much so that there are times when they themselves would ask to be photograph as I pass by.

Finally, the crowning jewel of the campus: the Chapel of the Crucified Christ. The façade of the chapel features a huge and looming sculpture of Jesus on the cross. The current structure is actually a reconstruction of the original one. During World War 2, Manila was leveled to the ground, including this chapel. Remarkably though, the facade was somehow spared. After the war, a new chapel was reconstructed in the same site.

    My First Indisposable Project

    The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    A Bit of Boston in the Heart of Vienna

    The brand new Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves around the world this week. In an attempt to celebrate the home of the ol' bean and the cod, we ventured out in search of some classic Boston flair. While we couldn't find a baseball match or a proper clam chowder, we did have a blast chasing red brick walls and spicing up our photo shooting with some iconic American flavors!
