I think I better get back to posting everyday

Since trying to do one post per week is actually a lot more tedious than I thought. Sometimes I forget my captions.

Going back to this project...

I was able to with David in HK to witness the printing of his book about macau.
It's called "Macau: Work in Progress". A six year compilation of his photos about Macau. It has some great images inside. Can't wait to get my signed copy!

Stayed for half a day inhaling ink scents and observing how this guy's 30 years experience show.
book printing
he sees color in an amazing way.

After having an exciting and interesting day at the printers, not much interesting, creatively, happened the next day. and in my attempt to "see" differently, this was recorded in my pixels
at least i tried. and i will keep on doing it.

same here, more or less
neon lights

And then this photo.
Shot on our way back from a day trip to Hong Kong. Amazing how he grows so fast!

Now this photo...
banyan tree indoor pool
It's the Banyan Tree Indoor pool I shot for a web publication about Macau. This are those times I wish I had a 17mm TS lens. But I just can't justify the cost if I get one. For now, I think I need to invest on more and better lights.

I spotted this man along the streets of Macau focused on his reading. Not minding the chaos of the tourist around him. Quite amazing I must say.

Last photo of Elias' grandparents before they left for home (Davao City, Philippines).

Our club is currently on preps for our yearly exhibition. This year's theme is something to do with motion. I am not submitting this photo but "motion" was on my mind while I was walking around looking for a photo.

and a product of creative juices running low...
Seeing through

Shameless plugging:

A new look of my website is on the works. Head over to to have a sneak peek. Let me know too what you think.

It's complicated

The weather this past week has been a little crazy.

I have always liked that after-rain feeling. It's like life gets back to normal or something. I especially like the rain-wet pavement for its reflection. So, last wednesday after a rain, I walked around Macau (while waiting for my wife) to take some street snaps.

no title

I love reflections (except mine)!

to be completely honest, this project is really taking a while to finish (haha). As much as I want to post better photos, I just can't. It's complicated.

But he "un-complicates" it for me.

Oh those cheeks!
look at those cheeks!

Ready to sleep

Everything about this photo is WRONG. But I like it. I don't what it is, I simply just like it.

this is an outtake from my portrait session today of CTM Macau's trail hiking team.

Self and Others'

280 of 365

This photo i took last night was a product of creative juice running low. It is my very bad attempt at replicating/imitating/copying the cover of Joe Mcnally's (signed copy) The Moment It Clicks. I was reading it for the nth time for some inspiration (read: imitation).

I was also excited last night for today's visit to the Macau leg of the World Press Photo 2011 exhibition.

World Press Photo '11
281 of 365

It was again full of inspiring and disturbing bodies of work. I saw the show last year and I have to say that this years winning images are less graphic.

It has also strengthened my personal belief that prints is still the best medium/final output for photographs.

As usual, click on the photo to redirect you to my Flickr page and see the larger versions.

Our First and Second

my hands are full

Kris-Belle took this photo while I was putting Elias to sleep and petting Cuddy. Cuddy is doing great with Elias so far. She's gentle around him.

bleeding heart

Maybe she's a little jealous but i think we are doing great in giving her, her needed attention. This photo i took last night reminded me on how behaved and good she is. I can't wait till Elias is big enough to pet her (Cuddy doesn't like rough plays).

1st month

Elias is one month today anyway. I think seven more months and they'll be for each other.

Shot this in the afternoon and the chef was kind enough to wrap it up and gave it to me to take home. It was really delicious!

Chinese Pyro

Last display of this year's competition. This was taken during China's entry. I don't know for how long but, seeing fireworks will not just be fire in the sky for me.
