The Mystery of Silay City

We were in a strange, dizzying effect, like we just got drugged or something. That happened a few hours after me and my friends visited Silay City, an old town-turned-city because of its flourishing sugar-cane production. Most of us love the old horror ghost towns – not to mention the creepy abandoned houses. Well, here in Silay City you can just be one to have one. Every corner of the streets is filled with old and pretty houses, here and there, people laughing and enjoying a good sunny day, horses traveling to and fro – a perfect time for LOMOGRAPHY!!!

Wherever you turn, there’s always a shot! Wherever you look, a nice, enjoyable scene would make your film roll. Whenever, wherever, whatever!!! The scenes truly awaits you from churches, old houses and the people!

So if ever you’re around the Philippines, don’t ever forget to drop by Silay City (45-minute flight from Manila to Bacolod, and bus route from Bacolod to Silay; 10-20 minutes) and take your fancy lomo camera! Don’t think; just shoot!
