December 29, 2015: My new Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 lens and snapshots of Plaza Miranda in Quiapo

The beautifully preserved Quiapo Church in front of a crowded Plaza Miranda.




December 29, 2015.

Quiapo is one of the most interesting places to visit here in Manila. There's the heritage of Quiapo Church in front of Plaza Miranda, which is a very robust market place from day until night. Mention Raon Street and people would say you could just about find anything you need that are related to electronics.

For all photographers whether newbie, hobbyist or pro -- there's Hidalgo Street, whose name is synonymous with camera supply stores, repair centers, and a market for vintage lenses.

That's where I found my beautiful Nikkor-S Auto 50mm f/1.4 (Pre-AI) and happy as a kid who just got a new toy. This usually sells for 8k and above but I'm lucky to find it at 2.8k Pesos!

Now it's time to roam the area and get to try it. I was really blown away because the images had crisp and sharpness as well as dreamy colors without need for editing later. Not only is it great for low light, I could also take fast moving subjects in low light... such as my restless pet rats.
