Who says that anything that’s related to one’s homeland’s history is unendingly boring? Take a look around the Hispanic walls of Intramuros and see for yourself!
Intramuros literally means within the walls in the Latin language. It was built by the Spaniards during the 16th Century and it is, in fact, the oldest district in the City of Manila. Intramuros is located in the heart of Manila, making it very accessible for photographers whenever they want to have an out-of-the-blue photowalk.
That was what occurred to me and my 2 girl friends when the 3 of us went to Intramuros. We brought our knapsacks & cameras and the sun was directly above our heads. I was the only one who brought a film camera, though. And so I was more than ecstatic to capture the historical place in town on film!
We were not able to scour the entire vicinity of Intramuros but I would definitely want to go back there again and shoot! Intramuros is not only an awesome place to waste one’s films but also a great way to travel back in time and remember how the Spaniards truly influenced and molded our nationalism.
Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.

You won't believe what we have in store for you with the launch of our newest mystery product. What a crazy idea, they thought. It can't be done, they said.

Could these milestones have anything to do with our mystery product?
"Is it acceptable to photograph the homeless?" is one of the most hotly-debated topics when it comes to street photography. There are two opposing sides to this: those who believe it is, and those who don't. For those who do, capturing such photographs is mere documentation of the world around us. For those who don't, doing so is a form of exploitation.

This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
"Seeing Through Photographs" is a free six-week course that will discuss the history of photography and its place in the contemporary world. The course will also extend to the use of photographs as technology, communication, documentation and a means for artistic expression.
