Park Stage, Glastonbury Festival, Somerset United Kingdom

From the moment me and my girlfriend decided to walk the last twelve miles to the festival I fell in love Glastonbury.

The energy of the people and the place just bounces off each and every person who cascade through the gates. From the many avant-garde artists, performers and lunatics the sense of excitement doesn’t ever leave you once you have attended the festival. Like vampire tasting blood for the first time, it’s leaves you wanting more and more and more.

My personal favourite area of the festival is the Park Stage. As you walk though tall black and white stenciled flowers to enter the area to your right a sand castle of Michael and Emily Eavis faces tickles your sides.
As you walk further up the hill past the many joyous people who surround you, you spot the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. It’s exactly how I would imagine LSD to be like.

Oddly shaped tables, chairs and beds. People dressed in to most amazing colourful vibrant costumes.
As the legal trip starts to fade you can hear something in the background. Walk a little further up there is a small tent filled to the top with cushions with everyone inside either playing a musical instrument or singing their hearts out. On the outside there are children peeking in with their hands covered in clay from the tent next door.

During the evening It’s just as beautifully crazy and full of the most loving care free people you could ever want to meet.

    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.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    Action.. basket time!

    As you can see in my albums, I love to photograph sports events. In this case, I used a pretty Actionsampler camera to document a mini basketball game played in the park of my city Como, in celebration of the Festival of Sports. It's a funny camera with interesting results! Take a look after the jump!

    Kick-Off Country: Kicking Off the World Cup Blues in Paris

    Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.

    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..."

    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.
