I heart Manila

 “When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes.  But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!”  ~Ted Grant

It was a toxic week for Jerdz... working from 7am till 10pm almost everyday in the office and still so many things to do!... so when weekend came, we decided to have a laid back Sunday spending the afternoon by the bay. There was no place in the world I'd rather be at that moment than there at the heart of Manila... with hubby, while munching on our chicken fillet sandwich, sipping our soda and spending the (cheesy haha!) afternoon together.  This place was one of my most photographed places so to have a bit of a twist, I did it in black and white! It's a nice place to relax, and the closest thing to being by the beach. As we walk, the song Marry me by Train is playing in my head... (sigh, such a romantic song)... a nice and laid back song that goes well with the images I took too =)
This is one of the reasons why Jerdz is my favorite shooting buddy... he carries all my stuff and lets me shoot freely =D
he makes it look easy =)

Lola Cris' 90th Birthday

Unlike the previous years, this year's valentine's day was the most memorable and meaningful Jerdz and I had.  We were very much honored to witness a family's milestone as their beloved Lola just turned 90! I cannot begin to tell how astonished I was when I finally met her... she was still very sharp and healthy... and she didn't even wear glasses! I can tell that her family feels very blessed having her.
I woke up early that morning... the weather was quite cool.  We still managed to pass by the church before heading to the venue.  Lola Cris was the first one to arrive... as minutes pass, guests started to pour in. Before we knew it, the event came to an end. It was a nice afternoon, everybody was warm and friendly.  After the shoot, we strolled a bit around the compound and bought some plants before going home -- Valentine's gift for mom and dad =)
