Travel Book 2015 [Summer Edition] - Lens Project: South Luzon

Even though the summer here in the Philippines is almost over, remember, it's summer in the U.S., so, somewhere on earth is sunny and this post is still worth posting!. This is my 4th instalment for the Travel Book 2015 [Summer Edition] Series.
Travelling for me is a combination of thoughts, music, food and photography.

Most of the pictures taken here are on a bus, since i don't have an opportunity to ask the driver to stop and take some good shots. Featured places are: The South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) views, Batangas, Laguna, Quezon Province, Bicol, Legazpi City and the Masbate Pass.
Check out the scenes and feel like you're also travelling down south of the Philippines with me (or on your own).















The view of Mayon Volcano on the sea, the image is dark since we left the shore at 5:00 am. 





I'm trying to give an eerie or weird/scary feeling especially on the ferry boat (that's why i took them on black and white), did you feel the emotion?

  1. yes... the fire exit, the restricted area and the stairs were all quite creepy to me yet fascinating at the same time .. kasi when I'm in such scene, i always thought myself playing real life "Resident Evil:Code Veronica" lol...same thing when I am at the hospital.. hehe

  4. Steve, you did succeed in creating an eerie feel with the black and white photos of the ferry. Frankly I wouldn't want to walk alone in that part of the ferry!

    1. That's actually not scary there Nancy, i just created that feeling but you can actually tour around the ferry by yourself. :) Thanks though for a positive feedback.

  9. Yes, I did feel emotion as I viewed them. Powerful is what I'd say about some of them. I thought to myself: "A guy took these pics."

  11. Yes, you succeeded in the black and white photos, When I see them it is as if you are the last person left on earth taking photos of abandoned places. So eerie.

    Your photos are very artistic. Thanks on bringing us on the trip down to south of your country.

  14. Travelling down south was never new to me. I'm from the Bicol region so been travelling on bus evrytime I go on vacation was quite a delightful experience.. at least for me. 12-13 hours kase ang byahe. Ang saya lang mag sight seeing. Your shots are beautiful by the way with a hint of mystery.
