Lomowalk in Eco Park

3

An ecology park in the middle of a city, the La Mesa Eco Park is a pleasant place to go for a whole or half-day stroll and to take pictures!

The La Mesa Eco Park is a favorite place for photoshoots and lomowalks. Even if it is in the middle of the city, once inside the park, you feel as though you are in the suburbs, engulfed by a big forest. There are lots of greens, plants and trees of different varieties. The picnic park also has a biking trail and you could also take a paddel boat ride in its lagoon. It has become a favorite place for prenuptial photoshoots as well because you don’t need permits to take pictures in the place. The keepers of the park encourages its visitors to keep things clean, otherwise you could do as you please. Hence, it has also become a favored spot for lomowalks as well.

A few months ago, a bunch of lomomanila members got together, had a quick lunch in a mall and took two rides—a jeepney and tricycle ride—to get to the park in under an hour and we had the rest of the afternoon to shoot the place, enjoy a leisurely walk, eat dirty ice cream, go horseback riding, visit a butterfly farm, and shoot some more. None of us went swimming since our lomo cameras were not ready to take a dip. In other words, we didn’t bring a Frogeye or an LC-A Crab! Nonetheless, we got to shoot until our films ran out. Unfortunately, none of the shops in the complex (that sold all sorts of sourvenirs and memorabilias) had film for sale. (Takes a mental note to suggest that).

Around the park, there are also facilities for a wall climb, zipline, rapelling and a paintball field. We didn’t have time to explore those places anymore. Perhaps some other time. We all had fun. Not bad for a Sunday afternoon walk in the park.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
