Bucari, Leon

I had a blast taking pictures in Bucari. It’s a barangay in Leon, Iloilo that’s well-known to locals as the Little Baguio for its pine trees and a bit colder climate. It’s an hour and a half hour of bumpy jeepney ride from the main town of Leon. If you love nature, you’re gonna enjoy this place. There are lots of trees and if you have time to explore the barangay, you might probably see harvests of tomatoes, white radishes, cabbages,etc. We were able to buy a kilo of tomatoes for 15PHp only. I only had two hours of sleep for this trip though there’s nothing a cup of coffee (and a film camera) couldn’t fix. :)

I recently bought a 35mm Canon lens among other things (thanks to Aia’s explanation why she chose 35mm over the 28mm). The trip to Camiña was the first time I tried it and I love the wider perspective I get when I look through the lens. I got my film from Camiña developed and they turned out okay. I always felt unsure when shooting indoors, but it’s a good thing that even though most rooms are dark, the place that we have our table has a very huge window.
