Visual Perspective– Photographers are the eyes of the reader and should show them things they may not be able to see for themselves. In other words, a unique visual approach.

And that’s exactly what happened here. As I was shooting during the weekend, with my wife and friends…I thought i was the only one who captured the moment of a father taking care of his child. My viewpoint was very limited and i concentrated on capturing the bond between the father and baby. The moment gave me a feeling of warmth and it got me so excited that I forgot to look beyond the two subjects. I was oblivious to my fellow shooting buddies who managed to take notice of the moment and was shooting from their own unique perspectives. My wife Venus manged to capture a more comprehensive story of a whole family as they go about their daily life…living on the streets of Manila.

Canonet crossroads…


So ,,,like i said, I was on my way to meet Jason Guttierez, a former officemate at the Agence france Presse. He bought my trusty old camers..While trying to shoot my ex-canonet for the last time and before we part ways, Jason took his Iphone from his pocket and shot us all together..


Of course there were also other subject inside Seattle’s Best…



Gassho…my dear friend

There comes a time when dear friends have to part ways as each go on with their life’s journeys…today is one of those days as I bring my “Canonet” to her next shooting buddy, a kindred spirit, an accomplished war correspondent and a passionate photographer himself.
But before we start her journey, a few wisps of incense smoke and a communion with the likenesses of Buddha should envelop her with bliss and cosmic vibes and surely with love.
Gassho my friend. No tears for me…###….
