    5 days back home in Manila, everything felt different, unusual and uneasy... but it also felt comforting.

    everything felt different but once i had a camera on my face, it wasn't different at all. it wasn't any different from how i shot before i left, and how i shot California.
    its very relaxing although very hot AND humid, 90something F for you folks in the US, 30something C for the rest of the world:biggrin:

    i had the pleasure to shoot yesterday with Dave (xdayv) and we had hella fun walking around, familiarizing ourselves once again with RF style shooting, wedid some catching up and it was fun meeting another good friend from this forum. :smile:


    some of my images a mixed bag of G1 7-14 f4 and X-E1 and Industar61 52mm f2.8

    I have to concur that those ultra wide shots offer very cool perspective of the streets in Manila! Had fun time shooting with you Sir...

    Excellent Adu (although some are a little too dark for me -- or maybe it's my office monitor? :biggrin:).

    Dave, where's yours? :)

    I have to disagree with Jef though - not missing Manila too much from those shots. LOL

    the people are very much different from what is portrayed (and the reality of it), as painful and as depressing on how the nature of how they live, they still have that "keep on smiling" attitude.

    yes sir Hyubie, accidentally put the -2 on the EV compensation switch - BUT i just didnt want to do too much PP on it, thats the truth lol. thanks, tho!

    Really a fine set, but I also found several to be a bit too dark. Very interesting perspectives. :thumbup:

    It's been a really nice feeling to rekindle the rangefinder experience, it had been more than a month I couldn't shoot with it because of what the typhoon has left us last November 8. I had to relegate the photography tasks to Micro 4/3s as the security in our place is not that safe until now. Since Andrew (aka Adubo) and I decided to shoot here (and finally meet up after a few failed attempts many months ago hehe... one fine dude btw!), I made sure I brought the rangefinder. Here's my small share from the streets of Manila...
