Scott Kelby's Fourth Annual World Wide Photowalk (Binondo)

I was a bit hesitant to go to the photo walk last Saturday since there was news about a typhoon coming in our country.  But because this is my FIRST photo walk and it didn't rain when I woke up, my friend and I decided to go.  We have no idea how to commute to Binondo Church so we decided to take the cab and, well, we were caught up in traffic jam. Anyway, we arrived at 9:30 am which is 30 minutes after the said meet up time but gratefully the other photo walkers were still waiting there.  As a first timer, I was a bit shy especially when people starts to warm up, shoot here and there displaying gadgets everywhere. But at the same time I have this feeling of saying to myself OMG this is it, my FIRST photo walk, ever. Haha

Here are the warm up shots while we were at Binondo Church's Plaza:

We started taking photos at around 10:00 am and walked from Binondo Church, Manila Bay to Sta. Cruz Church, then passed China Town before going back to Binondo Church. Since it rained at around 11:00 am, I approximately have just taken photos for an hour since it is so difficult to take a photo when you are holding an umbrella too (I don't wanna get sick and my cam should be protected too. Haha).

After the shoot, we gathered at McDonald's  for lunch and chit chat with our lead and other photo walkers about photography groups, contacts, links and stuff.

To sum it all up, it was a great FIRST experience and my curiosity for such events was finally satisfied. :)

@Christian: Opo. Ang hirap magpicture na umuulan. Haaay Pero ok na rin. Enjoyed my first photo walk. :)

Elal | The Shades of Grey said...

@Cedric: I enjoyed it! But I think we lack the interaction with other participants and all. Maybe next time we'd converse better.

Hello! I stumbled across your blog and am so glad I did. You are a true photographer. The Binonda church photos were a great essay. I think they are ready to form your first book. The church scenes were cool in their contrast with the wider area. But your people shots were spectacular. My favorites were the group if 6 children looking back at you and the solitary man with the long dark hair. Awesome as we say here in california!
Elal, I write a blog on food with my musings on life and love. All photos are mine though I took only with a small pocket camera. Please visit. Maybe follow. Take care

Elal | The Shades of Grey said...

Thank you for your kind words, Mario! I was not thinking of anything related to a book. Hehe That seems to be a wild dream as of the moment.

I'll definitely visit your blog. Thank you once again. And see you around in the blogger's world! :)
