November 26, 2016.

Have you ever thought about your life? How about the thought of Life in BGC? I think, it's a very neat environment... everything is clean and in order. There's no better place to live in the Metro than in BGC!

Today is a special day, because I always go photowalk alone and this is my first social event for such a fab photowalk event.

The event was hosted by Camerahaus in Bonifacio Global Center, Taguig City. The theme for our photowalk was 'Life in BGC'.

It started to shower with rain two days ago and I had a bad premonition that it would rain so hard today (plus not feeling well since the other day). Fortunately, it was only a light drizzle... because rain or shine, we're all excited for the event to push through.

The weather gradually improved once the photolympic started around 11.00 AM, thankfully. 


========================================


B/W is my way of expressing the sense of yearning for the past, or a nostalgia. I was undecided on shooting B/W or colored because the colors also express certain qualities (eg. the gloomy sky). That's why I shot everything in color, then picked the ones for 'desaturate' in PS. Today was also my experiment on overexposed photos.

For your reference, I have uploaded all my SOOC/unedited photos in the album link below (including photos that I have deleted):



6.30 AM Aww, rainfall... such a gloomy day.

In the next photo below, you can see the steps, then a gate blocking the way. In the hazy background are tall and proud buildings. What I'm trying to express here is that the road to progress is wide. But corruption has always been a big block for progress. Therefore, the giant buildings we see in the background are only a dream. Reality ends where the barricade (corruption) stands.

Rusted Barricade = corruption
Steps = progress
Tall and proud buildings in the background = the dream
Unfinished building in the foreground = unfulfilled dreams, disillusionment

Looking back at the end of the day, the rain was just to add excitement and ambiance to the event. It's been a fun photolympics event. Thank you to Camerahaus for this memorable day. See you next time! =)
