“DO YOU KNOW WHO HE IS?”
One of the best photographers I have known in my entire life, he has greatly inspired me in my work as a photographer. He is such a great guy too, very approachable and very very very down to earth. I even asked his permission if I could post his photo, he gladly obliged. Cool bro, you’re just so cool.
Would you happen to know who he is? :D

"OOOH, WIDE!" 
I got a chance to meet a new friend yesterday, who was a fellow Nikon enthusiast. And he had with him this Tokina UWA lens - and 11-16mm f/2.8. I got a chance to play around this lens before, but on a Canon body. Now here he is, having the same lens, but with an F-mount. I wasted no time in tried it on my camera, and may I say it really is a pretty neat lens, having an equivalent of 16mm on a 35mm sensor. Hmmm…even thinking on buying one for myself :)

"BIGLANG TINGIN"
Alam mo yung biglang tingin? Yung tipong, “Pre, harap ka dito, bilis!” Bago pa sya lumingon ay nakaposisyon na yung focus at setting ng camera mo at sa sandaling lumingon sya, pipindutin mo nalang yung shutter.
Kahanga-hanga ang mga imaheng nakukuhanan sa mga biglang tingin :)
Di lang nakafocus sa gitna ung focus point ko kaya medyo soft yung kuha. f/1.4 Nikkor kasi ni Tim ang gamit ko dito eh :)

"THE LITTLE PRINCE"
As a child, I was and am still a reader. And The Little Prince is one of those books that made a huge impact in my life and still does. Loneliness, being misunderstood… Those were things which made me think twice about my life. I know how to be lonely. I know how to be misunderstood by “grown-ups”. This is a fifteen year old book, with a tattered cover and faded pages inside, but the story within those pages continue to live on in my life. :’)

"CANON 5D MARK III + CANON EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM"
The BIG DADDY of Canon full-frames plus the standard zoom lens for full frame cameras, 24-70 f/2.8. I love it. I simply love this camera + lens combo. Another tack-sharp L-lens from Canon :3 Kudos to my friend Tim for taking this photo for me :D

"CANON EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM"
I am a Nikon-user by heart, but when it comes to full-frame cameras and lenses, it’s another story. I’ve used this lens on a Canon 5D Mark III body, and may I say that it is so sharp. Pin sharp. And the color rendition of the lens is just amazing. If I was a Canon user and if was shooting full-frame, this would probably also my weapon of choice. :)

114,960 minutes after the opening of this photo blog of mine, and 205 followers have been with me after all those minutes.
I thank each and every one of those followers for sticking up for me, even through the darkest moments of my photo blog.
Yes, unfollowers came and took their course. I simply am thankful for them not unfollowing me, despite me not being able to update as often as I did.
More months and more followers to come! :D
Cheers! :3

"I, PERSONALLY, AM LOST FOR WORDS FOR THIS PHOTOGRAPH"
I personally look up to Paul Quiambao. For those who don’t know him, he’s the Quadricentennial photographer of UST. All those beautiful shots of UST, is taken from his amazing eye for photos and his camera. From fireworks to the new Quadricentennial Pavillion, he has made his mark in the history of UST as a photographer.
The University of Santo Tomas has been photographed probably in all angles conceivable through the years. I have made a personal mission to see UST in an unseen perspective through my viewfinder. This is the start of a Neo-Centennial look for UST. This is the Neo-Centennial way of looking through my viewfinder. :)
Perfect timing.
Perfect composition.
Perfect camera settings.
Perfect image output.

"A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM" - Edgar Allan Poe
Take this kiss upon the brow!And, in parting from you now,Thus much let me avow-You are not wrong, who deemThat my days have been a dream;Yet if hope has flown awayIn a night, or in a day,In a vision, or in none,Is it therefore the less gone?All that we see or seemIs but a dream within a dream.I stand amid the roarOf a surf-tormented shore,And I hold within my handGrains of the golden sand-How few! yet how they creepThrough my fingers to the deep,While I weep- while I weep!O God! can I not graspThem with a tighter clasp?O God! can I not saveOne from the pitiless wave?Is all that we see or seemBut a dream within a dream?

"A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM" - Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

"NIKON F50"
I have really been fancying Nikon Film SLRs the past few days that now I want to get one for myself. :D This is my classmate’s Nikon F50. I have been researching on it for quite sometime now. It has piqued my attention because it has autofocus, it has a built-in AF motor in the body and even has metering. Nearly a twenty year old camera, but it has the comforts of today’s cameras, considering that this is an entry level body! Will be buying this camera from that classmate after the semester. :)
EXCITED! :3

"UNSUNG HEROES"
The Main Building of the University of Santo Tomas has been photographed numerous times through the years, but the figures who stand as silent witnesses have always become pushed into the limelight. As a Thomasian, I apologize for forgetting who they are. But to me, they are unsung heroes who helped mold the Thomasian identity to what it is today :)
