Back in the 1970's, big blue buses with pastel hearts painted all over them ruled the roads of Metro Manila, Philippines. The Love Bus was a favorite of retro Manileños because of its systematic route, subsidized fare, and super sweet design. Caution to the reckless: "The Love Bus will not stop for you; you have to run after them."
Love Bus, 1970s (Manila, Philippines) — Air-conditioned buses that will only stop to load/unload passengers at designated stops. The route was from Makati to Escolta via Mabini Street and then another one that ends in Cubao (near Cubao Shoe Expo). Before you enter, you have to prepare your fare (8 Pesos) and give it to the driver. There are no conductors, just the driver. The bus was air-conditioned and clean. The Love Bus will not stop for you; you have to run after them. When the Marcoses were thrown out, the Love Bus disappeared from the roads.
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
