    Quiapo: The Feast of the Black Nazarene

    Devotees from all walks of life gather to fulfill their vows to the Black Nazarene--walking barefoot and touching the statue for good health, peace and deliverance from calamities. This is an experience me and my LC-A wont miss.

    In the Heart of Manila: Quiapo and Recto

    Strangers selling herbal medicine, fortune-tellers, back-to-back local films, gigantic rainbow-colored umbrellas, underground passageways, jeepneys, thrift shops, photography needs, the Black Nazarene, homeless canines and felines, and more strange strangers... they come and go in Quiapo and Recto.

    Walking Through Quiapo

    A trip, deep into the heart of Manila, along the Quiapo streets less taken. It can be argued the the district of Quiapo is the very heart of the Manila; a microcosms of sort. It is divided by Quezon Boulevard into two general areas. In the better known part, one can locate the Quiapo Church, Raon, and the haven for photographers, Hidalgo Street. The other side, however, seems to be typically less explored by local tourists.

    Solid Shots with Solid Gold 200

    I've only shot one roll of Solid Gold 200 ASA color negative film but I quite like it already. It's got strong hues (even in flash photos, with defined vignettes to boot) and comes cheap at about $1.50. I also like that I got 43 frames from a 36 exposure roll! Definitely a solid film to have in your stash, dudes.

    Basquiat in Quiapo

    He'd probably be at home at the heart of Manila. He would have rented a bedroom space in one of the old buildings. He would have used the dilapidated walls of old cinema houses as his canvas. He would have frequented the underpasses and overpasses to observe people and contemplate about life. With faith, trade, sex and drugs, Basquiat would have loved Quaipo.

    Monday Moodboard: Camera Thrilled

    I just went to the Mecca of film camera hunters and enthusiasts in Manila yesterday. All I can say is that I’m still buzzed with the experience.

    Bahay Nakpil-Bautista & The Boix House: Colonial Homes of Bautista Street

    On the tamer side of Quezon Boulevard, the echoes of colonial domesticity and fortune still linger within the old homes of Quiapo. While many have suffered the slow death of neglect and the doom of uncaring government-sanctioned demolitions, some domiciles prove to be heritage conservation successes amidst the raucous of jeepneys, fruit vendors, political rhetoric and hawkers of bootlegged videos that clog the narrow streets that were once the most beautiful in all of Manila.
