Had fun last Saturday September 6 with some of the local Iloilo photographers even with the bad weather. The photo walk was organized by photographers who are part of 500px.com . This was in relation to the second annual 500px Global Photo Walk in every city on the planet. For this year’s theme we were going for “symbols” and “patterns”.
The walk started around 4:00 PM from Museo Iloilo and we walked all the way to Fort San Pedro passing by the busy downtown of Iloilo City. Glad so far the weather cooperated abit with just minimal showers and didn’t poured so much on us.
Our photos from this event will be seen here: https://500px.com/groups/iloilo-city-philippines-500px-global-photo-walk

I was a volunteer of NGO LOOB (Official) from 2005 to 2008. I could say I was a pioneer of the Iloilo City dumpsite projects that the NGO started. We were the first batch of volunteers that started programs/projects in the dumpsite. I used to spend my weekends teaching the kids there and experiencing life among the piles of garbage. It has been years since we started our projects there and now it is kinda nice that it has grown so much.
The NGO initiated this fashion show with the help of the Japanese student volunteers from HALLE. They utilized the recycled products that we introduced to the mothers of the families who lived around the dumpsite. The City of Iloilo help facilitate this show in relation to the 77th Charter Day celebration of the city.
The models for this show are the NGO’s own Japanese volunteers and the kids from the dumpsite area.
I haven’t done these kinds of shoots in a while so yeah.. ahahahaha
Kinda glad to see how much the projects improved since we started them.

77th Iloilo City Charter Day Exhibit
– 22 Aug 2014
– Museo Iloilo Art Gallery, Iloilo City
Along with the bulk of the local artists of Iloilo City, I participated in the 77th Iloilo City Charter Day Exhibit in Museo Iloilo. This is my first exhibit in Museo Iloilo after 3 years. Each of us were given one canvas which is 19 inches x 19 inches, and our common theme for this show is “Hablon” which is the local textile of Iloilo City.

August 19, 2014 is World Photography Day 2014 and what best way to celebrate is carrying a heavy tripod to downtown Iloilo City and take a few long exposure shots of the newly named Heritage Site of the City of Iloilo. I have seen a lot of photographers take photos of Calle Real since it was declared as such, and I was itching to contribute as well.
