Locations Feature of the Week


Another week, another standout Locations article to feature! A simple day trip to the province provided for an awesome setting to have a lomo-shoot for this community user and his lomo-loving friends! Already have an idea on who is it? Well, just read about the announcement after the jump!

While walasiteodito contributes articles to the Locations section from time to time, he has managed to always keep things fresh by always scouring his city as well as nearby locations for something new to take photos of and write about.

For this article, he and his equally lomo-loving friends took a day trip to a nearby province wherein they got to learn more about the local culture and history as well as sample some of the delicious local delicacies…and as a bonus, visited a camera museum!

“I was given a chance to go to Taal because my friends from Shutter Revolution planned a 1-day lomowalk there, and fortunately I was able to join them. We arrived in Taal at 9:00 am and ate our breakfast there, we ate at a Lomi house. For the price of 35 pesos (that’s less than a dollar) you get to taste their special Lomi (a kind of noodle soup dish), which was very filling. After eating, we excitedly proceeded to the main attraction of the town, because everyone’s hands were itching to click some shutter buttons, especially because the weather there was great; the sky was at its bluest, a perfect day for slide films I say.” – walasiteodito

Given the limited time they had, a well-planned out itinerary was a must to be able to see more attractions – and of course, take more interesting photos. Good thing he and his friends already had the day nicely planned having filled it with a variety of activities that local and foreign tourists will be able to enjoy.

Complementing his great photos are some very informative tidbits that if ever you’d want to visit Taal yourself, then you already have a pretty good idea of where to go, what to do, and which dishes to try. If you’re interested to learn more about his Taal excursion, check out his article here.
