Music has always been a great friend and companion. There are just moments that you just want to sink in your seat with closed eyes and the volume up for the total listening experience. It’s a travel on it’s own and you just absorb the thump of the bass, guitar riffs and vocals.
Then you just lose yourself in the whole moment. You bob your head and shake it from left to right. You’re just engulfed in the music and is one with the artist you’re listening to. You get chills up your spine and start singing along. Then you open your eyes and the people on the public transpo are looking at you like you’re a weirdo or something.
The music made you forget the commute to work or school. They all have these looks on their faces, half smiling and smirking and you realize that you want to literally sink in your seat from the embarrassment. Or you could just keep getting lost in the sound waves and continue the private concert in your head.
It’s one of the powers of good music. You just want to get lost and belt it out like Janis Joplin or do a techno pop performance ala David Bowie. That’s what I’ll do on my way home tonight. It’s all in light of my recent frustration to watch The Killers perform live in Manila. It’s going to be a headphone party kind of night.
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.

Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
