Hanging out at High Street

6

I rarely go to Bonifacio High Street. It’s too out of the way, it’s too hot, it’s too expensive! But because I was desperate to shoot film, me, Shabby and basterda walked the 400 meter street under the hot blazing sun!!!

Bonifacio High Street is a great place to shoot! If it weren’t for the tight security who kept telling us we couldn’t shoot unless we had a permit! It was a great adventure to doge the guards and to pretend taking a picture of each other instead of just the fountains and different interesting structures found in the park!

Sprocket-holed, Wide Angled Views

Four-hundred meters long, Bonifacio High Street is an outdoor type mall with over a hundred restaurants and retail shops. This makes it unbearably hot during the summer and inconvenient during the rainy season. But it’s a great spot nonetheless especially since it’s very close and accessible to the main cities on Metro Manila.

Restaurants, Structures and Whatever was Interesting!

For me, what makes this commercial area really interesting (and cooler during summer) is the well-landscaped park located in the middle of the street between the shops. Aside from the flowers and trees, there are fountains creatively constructed for the sightseers. A lot of events such as exhibits are done in Bonifacio High Street. In fact, it is a very popular venue for races and marathons which are held almost every Sunday in the early hours of the morning.

    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?

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

    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..."

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
