Camiña Balay nga Bato

Together with friends and the boyfriend, we visited a local heritage house in Villa last week. I rarely use my digital Canon now so since film rolls are yet to be developed from this trip, let me share to you photos taken from my phone. I wasn’t really paying attention to the guide during the house tour. The owner still lives in the same house, so there are rooms that are off-limits to visitors. The ground floor serves as Lola Rufina’s Heritage Curio Shop which sells antique furniture (mostly cabinets) and religious statues, sinamay cloths, etc. I took photos even if there wasn’t really enough light on this part of the house. The upper floor is where they serve their famous homemade tsokolate. I feel anxious what the photos will be like. Mostly the rooms are dark and when there’s light, my light meter says it’s not enough. I’m hoping the photos will turn out okay. ;)

A perfect place for photos.Who want's hot choco?Lots of antique statues in the altar room.Probably a Dolorosa minus the hair and the clothes.Chasing light...CamiÑa Balay nga Bato in Iloilo CityWhat they use to make their choco.//<3

A forgotten roll

I went to have some film rolls developed a few weeks ago and was surprised with what was waiting for me inside the envelope. I didn’t know I still had an unprocessed roll from two years ago! I think this was the same year that I bought my AE-1. I used to have problems with light leaks and flares as you can see with the photos and it prompted me to bring my cam to a local film repair shop and that did the trick.

The beach

I still have photos from Feb that I still haven’t shared. That was five months ago, I know. I’ve put this off for so long that it also took me 5 months to log in, tweak the blog design again and did some posting. I enjoyed snapping photos of those acacia trees. They’re beautiful when they’re lined up like that. The UP (University of the Philippines) campus was a big place so it started raining by the time we reached their secluded beach, but not before I was able to steal some photos of those hanging black clouds.
