Met California-based Fil-Am lomographer Isabel (ceduxi0n) during a lomowalk in Binondo with friends. I gave her my roll of Supersampler shots of Sta. Cruz, Manila. She doubled it when she got back in the US. Unfortunately, it got lost when she was about to bring it to the lab. To make up for the lost opportunity, she sent me through a friend a roll she shot in Las Vegas and the Scary Dairy in Channel Islands. I used the film during the health caravan mission to the indigenous people of the Matigsalog tribe in Kitaotao, Bukidnon and a short stay in Davao City. Collaboration is really a great teacher to lomographers. And the joyful surprise of the outcome is immensely satisfying. Thanks ceduxi0n for this opportunity. Looking forward to future collaborations.
