Creative Sunday Morning.

My highschool schoolmate Bing and I reconnected over at FB. And after more than 20 years, we met again last Sunday. We've been planning about a creative weekend together and talk about photography, and take pictures in between. She asked me to teach her. I didn't know what else I could teach her because she already takes amazing photographs.

I shared my own photography principles and secrets to her and I hope she did learn something from me.

After a few minutes of discussing photography, we walked around Fort Santiago to take pictures.

The best part about that Sunday morning was actually the catching up part. We talked about highschool, common friends, life, love, and family. I feel so proud of Bing because she certainly has gone a long way. She's very successful and yet, still very grounded.

Sharing some photos of that day.


Photography is an exercise of seeing... seeing even those we consider unimportant and small.



It is also about seeing old things with new eyes.



Looking at Rizal on a different perspective.



When taking pictures, don't be afraid to crawl because the view is different from down there.



That door, I like!



Love to photograph benches.



Such a snob little kitty. :D



I want a house as pretty as this and a courtyard. *grin*



Thank you, Bing! I had a wonderful time!

Oh, how nice it would be to be mentored by you! Your friend Bing is so lucky! The photos are amazing! Even without the watermark, they have your signature on them! :-)

how do you do these, produce such haunting beautiful photos consistently?

please mentor me too...but i guess, maulaw ko, matameme ko mangayo ug advice...i had loads of opportunities when i saw you in manila and cebu, but i cant ask a single question regarding photography even if we were talking about it, because we were too involved with just enjoying the moment..=)

i promise, to distract myself from "the moment" when i see you, so i can muster the courage to ask that 100 million dollar question : "how do you take photographs like these?"

Aileen...it was a rare opportunity to be with you. But I am still hoping that in between your busy schedule we could do this again. Other than the learnings i got, it was more of the time spent talking about how we both share the same perspective in life. I thought i was alone in this journey, not until that Sunday morning.

Hi Filipinas...she was my classmate way back in San Carlos. Though I don't know how you both were friends. All I can say is that we are both lucky to have her.

Beautiful shots always! :) Now I'm actually seriously (ayan ha two adverbs - yay!) considering getting a good camera and learn to take pretty pictures, too. :D

Thank you, Chel! I would love to share with you the things I know, but I guess, you know a lot more than I do. You take beautiful photos, too! You do! :)

It was a precious time, sharing stories and photography with you, Bing! Yes, let's do this again when we both aren't too busy. Maybe, early next year, when the weather wouldn't be too harsh. :)
