Bayside Tour

By on November 15, 2011

Today is my free day and I’m searching for a place to relax in order to have a peace of mind and a place where I can spend hours of my time taking photos. All I need is a perfect spot where I can refuge to escape today’s hassle after a hard day’s work.

I found myself at this place,Manila Bay along Roxas Boulevard. It’s an hour drive away from home. What a welcoming glow! The sun is clear and the panoramic view is beautiful. It’s more beautiful now than ever before. This is not my first time to see this place but, I can’t even remember anymore the last time I’ve visited this place. That was years ago. It’s not only a place for pleasure now, it’s also a playground  for sports fanatics and relaxation. I did not arrange my time to shoot so to expect people will interrupt me. Sometimes, the presence of people is good because they serves as human element to make my view more dramatic and interesting.

No matter what kind of camera to capture,  splendid moments through lens is all that matters. I’m just doing justice to this beautiful place so allow me to make your viewing more memorable. I don’t want to stay on the same spot so I can get more sights and lots to share with my viewers. Let’s get started. Happy viewing!

A great place to start. I photographed myself for a remarkable memories to remember.  I don’t want to make myself to be the  the center of interest,I just want my tour to be remembered.The tour was , however,  about much more than just a  photography, It’s a pleasure that my heart desires. You can see behind me the wide clear blue sky.

This is the monument of Dr. Jose Rizal,our national hero. If we talked about changes over the decades, This place is more developed now. a full swing of development.

You can clearly see here our Philippine flag.

A beautiful and a lush landscapes. At this area, I took a slow walk so I can figure it out the right angles in shooting. Never ask me about details, I’m not a pro. I’m still learning and practicing a lot during my free hours.

The presence of a car and  a man is a good element  that makes photography more interesting.

This is a Calesa, a horse drawn cab here in the Philippines. I photographed this in front of the restaurant.

What  do you think makes this place unique?  It reminds tourist that Philippines  has a lot to offer and that you can enjoy the beauty of nature and scenery.

What a beautiful sun.

The sun  gives me the right energy for the day.

I reached Manila Bay at this point around 3:30 p.m. I settled down here waiting for the sunset.

The amazing sun over Manila Bay is still up, I waited for the right time to catch the view before it will settle down.While waiting,  giving me more rest and ample time to go to the nearest restaurant and eat.

I’m sitting here in front of  the Bayside.For me, Today seems like a holiday.

I photographed again myself for the last time. This is the most memorable and dramatic picture  I’ve ever had. I’m waiting for the sunset. I was very happy to see myself but, not to  interrupt the sunset. It seems like a photo postcard.

I found the serenity I’ve been looking for; peace of mind, freedom of movement, privacy and meditation. If you are searching for a relaxing and healing place, this is the place not to be missed.

Note

I’m the subject of this article, I’m the writer and  the photographer. Let’s call it 3 in 1. I want  full details of these articles to be completed. I don’t want to miss complete details. This is just the part 1 of my story. The Part 2 would be ”THE AMAZING  SUNSET OVER MANILA BAY BLOG.” I will publish it next few weeks. I’m still in the process of choosing good photographs for you.  Thanks for stopping here.

Snapshots in the City

By on November 2, 2011

Everytime I go out, I always bring my camera with me. As much as possible, I want to document beautiful places I’ve been to and keep memories with me forever.Photographing assorted landscapes in and out of the city is my current task these days.I’ve been doing these all the time especially during my free time. It’s just a hobby never to miss the opportunity to capture every details of magnificent places. I’m not a photographer but you may want to call me an ‘’amateur’’ instead. That’s fine. I’m trying my best and still learning. Nowadays, Sophisticated cameras can make photography easier than ever before. It’s  even easier now  to shoot unfamiliar places.The only problem I have encountered is the intense sunlight especially under a bright sunny sky. Anyway,I just want to achieve not a perfect one but, a better one. Let me show you some of the photographs taken around Metro Manila lately.  I have made a little clean-up and it looks more better.

View of the church. Taken around while driving around the city. Check the other picture,You’ll see the adjustment I’ve made. (Click on image to view larger)

The fish-eye effect.

There’s no harm trying to beautify your own pictures as long as it’s a real take. Even some of the pictures you’ll  see on newspapers, magazines are already edited and well-cleaned. It’s already a common practice wayback long time ago.There were other landscape scenes taken around. You can check next post.

CLOSER TO NATURE

A magnificent natural beauty that gives you a feeling of welcome. When you watch it from atop a cliff over fresh breeze from the lake, it gives you a surreal feeling that you’ll fall in love with the beautiful volcano.

The color combination makes it perfect for the subject as well. It also makes a vital contribution to the image athmosphere.  What do you think? The method approach is just basically simply but, looks fantastic! The incredible results of High dynamic range or simply HDR, accurately represent the range of pressure found in the original pictures itself.
