The river ride of the Pasig River Ferry Service is one awesome trip. It was very comfortable, relaxing and quiet. You can hardly hear any noise from the city. It enables you to see the city from another point of view. But the treat here are not the squatter areas with people waving to you or the small wooden boats which your huge steel ferry passes by with, it’s not the Malacanang Palace and the manicured golf courses by the river either, its not even the charm of the old factories and deserted oil depos in different stages of decay, but the real charisma of the whole ride are the bridges you pass under. Two modes of old transportation intersecting. From Escolta station to Guadalupe, I passed by 6 bridges. Notably are the Nagtahan bridge, Lambingan bridge and the Huge Quezon bridge.
Architecture and engineering is well pictured in each and every bridge. No bridge is the same. And I was lucky enough to take lomos of them on a sunny day. They should have included trivia on public address speakers about the areas the ferry passes but I’m thinking that this isn’t a tourist ride and it was largely commissioned for public commuting so it’s a stretch really. Oh how about a high tech push buttoned info screen with earphones? Nah. Scratch it. And one more thing, don’t take out your cam when you pass by the president’s house in Malacanang Palace. They hate lomo. Snapping shots in the area is forbidden. It’s kinda silly. By then it makes you think if they haven’t found out about Google Earth yet.

It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
You've taken lots of really great pictures and you just want to put it out there. Why wait to be published when you can publish your own zine? Photographer and creative director Igor Termenon, founder of Girls on Film zine, shares his experience in curating, editing, and self-publishing a zine.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
