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.
