April Photowalk

I’m still learning how to take good photos, fingers befriending the curves of a camera, seeing the world through the viewfinder and hoping that there, I could see something I have missed in plain sight.

April is it. My friend and I walked around our city to look for interesting subjects. These are what I have managed to salvage. I know these aren’t good enough. But I’d like to document my progress and see how far my sight can go from here.

Note: These aren’t sequenced according to time of day.

We started from Fuerte de San Pedro and well, spotted this wonderful couple. The scene, if you’ve frequented to the infamous port, is mostly that of young lovers, sometimes even too shy to look at each other. So they obviously shine.

The beloved downtown streets. Old buildings and old history.

I guess a Cebu street photowalk session wouldn’t be complete without a shot from the Magellan’s cross, which has likely become the emblem of Cebu.

Also one of the most photographed architecture in Cebu.
