February 28, 2016: First Time At Ninoy Aquino Wildlife Park... Attacked By Dog

February 28, 2016.

It was overcast and the light rain shower throughout the day was making me feel depressed. Do you ever get the feeling that you're screaming inside while feeling low for no reason? Come late afternoon, I finally decided to get out and get some fresh air despite the rain. I took three lenses for me to play with: the Holga HL-N 60mm f/8, Soligor 80-200mm f/4.5, and Nikkor 43-86mm f/3.5. My Nikkormat FTn also got a joyride, with the Holga welded to it.

The Ninoy Aquino Wildlife Park. So this is what they were always talking about! One of the photographers' favorite meetup place. It's obviously my first time to visit this place. It was pretty late and I got in at the last minute, but just in time to grab just a few shots.

Before that, I was really aiming to go to UP Diliman for some random nature photography. But knowing it was already getting dark, I called the jeepney driver to stop when it went a block past Quezon City Hall.

This was shot from the Welcome Rotonda foot bridge. I'm trying to recreate lo-fi old film photos.

Walking along the highway, I took a few snapshots until I got to Ninoy Aquino Wildlife Park. The wicked dog attacked me but it ran away as soon as I took out my camera. NIKON SAVED MY LIFE!

I believe this female dog is called a bitch.

By this time, I still haven't cleaned my Soligor 80-200mm. There were fungus and haze inside, which causes a little lack of clarity when zoomed at the 200 mm end. A few weeks later, I finally got the courage to open it and after the difficult cleaning, the lens had a noticeable optical improvement!

This is after the lens was cleaned.

Technical Information

Shot with Nikon D5200
Holga HL-N 60mm f/8
Nikkor 43-86mm f/3.5
Soligor 80-200mm f/4.5


Images shot with the Nikkor and Holga were left unedited. The Soligor photos were corrected to remove the yellow cast. My lenses have different bias (eg. some of them tend to have bluish or yellow cast). Sometimes I stick to one custom white balance, so when I change lenses there is a tendency to leave color bias.
