Really Nostalgic Images?

I'm not sure if others share the same sentiment, but I feel that Instagram filters are getting old. At least  for me... Processing the picture you make your adjustments, and optionally, apply a filter. And that's where lies my disinterest - mainly due to the unfamiliarity.

Burgers And Brewskies Night

It has been a stressful past few weeks for me. Work and other stuff have been piling up left and right, I hardly have fun on weekends anymore and I'm beginning to become a recluse. A college buddy of mine expressed having similar woes, and so we decided to unwind a bit over some cold drinks. It's been a while since we hung out - It's a routine overdue of another iteration. Come to think of it, I think we've been doing this for a decade already. This post will be of food. Bon apetit!

Just One Drink

Harbor Square Afternoon

Empty Chairs on a Cloudy Afternoon

I hardly go to Harbor Square these days. These were taken from a few months ago when I was with my dad and bro. Harbor Square will always have its charm for me though. It's where I learned a lot when I was practicing the very basics in Photography. I practically learned how to do night photography in Harbor Square.

San Mateo In Monochrome

When somebody hears the word "San Mateo", folks where I live would instantly think "San Mateo, Rizal". I however, remember "San Mateo" differently...

This is a man-made stream that runs along Park Place in the Archstone Apartments area in front of Whole Foods.
It has decorative fountains on both ends and bridges in between. It's a romantic place. Even if you're alone.

Wedding Portrait

This is just a one off shot. It's from a sepia shot and added some more built in filter from Photobucket. This is a portrait of my friends on their wedding day taken after the ceremony. I particularly like this shot as to how they're arranged. The bride and groom are wearing their gown and suit respectively but they're positioned like it's a casual prom in a setting that looks real classy.

I guess I'm a bit of a romantic with this image for imagining several rowdy kids in a room with their parents generations from now and their mom would be saying, "Kids, come here, gather 'round. Do you know who these people are in the picture? Let me tell you a story about your lola and lolo..." 

After The Event, March 8, 2014

... After a generation or two, how will your pictures look like?

A Shot Of The Water, Filtered

I got this shot of a fountain when I was attending a wedding last March. And by filtered, I don't mean the water. I meant the shot. I was playing with Filter Bracketing (One shot, all the filters!) and applied all the filters I liked on the shot.

In grainy black & white. Sorry, no fine misty white water.
This was hand held when I took it. Long exposure wasn't an option.

Playing With (Japanese) Dolls

Okay, so this is a bit of a throwback. Sometime ago, I think this was early January, during a family get together at a certain restaurant, I got a chance to look up and found something adorable...

Filters, Anyone?

Who likes using filters in their photos? Digital filters are basically just effects applied to a photo, with the intention either to emulate the colors, contrast and tones of certain film formats or to add some new artsy effect.
