Ok, not really. I spent the new year’s festivities near work. I get off work at 11PM, and since Eastwood City seems to always throw a party at every special occasion, I didn’t even bother to plan what I’d do that evening, except to take pictures.
I’m glad I just stayed conveniently around 100 steps away from my office.
PHOTO STORY OF THE DAY:
Usually, if I don’t like the band performing, I won’t shoot them, unless there’s something that would spark my interest. Hence, I look around and look for interesting scenes. Here was one of the first sights that looked photogenic:
A small group of girls with jester hats sipping sweet cold coffee. Then they noticed I was shooting:
The moment was blush-worthy: an awfully sweet smile from a cute girl directed at me. On hindsight, no, the smile wasn’t AT ME, but at the persona I exuded. I guess I did look too much a photographer than anyone else, with my getting near all my subjects as much as possible, and my semi-huge gear. I got the usual “You shoot for ___ ?” question from someone who looked like she was part of the ABS-CBN staff covering the event.
Maybe I should do this thing and make money out of it already. I don’t think my photos are THAT bad, anyway.
