Philippines Photograph Montage 3.31.15

It is that time the moment once more, faithful viewers – so prepare your lousy eyeballs as we keep on to try to learn how to acquire images with our “new” Sony Cybershot.   ?




I took this shot just one early morning at the Dumaguete community marketplace.   [One of my passions is going to early morning motorcycle rides around the city and it’s cool and picturesque environs.  I haven’t been able to do this as much as I like to as of late due to my injury and thoroughly no-cooperative sciatica, but now and then I am able to mount my trusy YBR125 and roar (or rather, putter) off into the morning…]  This was taken in a active consuming location on the jap aspect of the industry that specializes in puto ( sticky rice cakes lined in warm chocolate sauce).  I experienced a espresso at this little shop, and the proprietors have been variety plenty of to pose for a shot.



 This was also taken that morning in the Dumaguete public market place.  Barber stores are peppered all over the Philippines – typically serving as an impromptu heart of catching up on chizmis (gossip) and seeing buddies you haven’t touched foundation with in a whilst.  A quantity of barbers and stylists are bayot (gay), and this form dong was good enough to permit me catch a early morning snapshot of what for him will be a extended working day.


I stopped by Taco Tayo on South Road a single late afternoon soon after an “exhausting” day hanging about the seaside in Dauin.  Taco Tayo has been in business enterprise for about a yr now and has develop into a well known vacation spot for those looking for a very good, affordable meal.  It started out as a simple stand with an electric powered skillet and they have been steadily growing the dimension of the restaurant (and the menu) at any time because.  



Here’s my late lunch that working day.  Home made salsa and delicate shell tacos make for a delectable Mexican snack (12,000 miles from Mexico).  Add a cold Pilsen and you are superior!



The Taco Tayo employees was awesome more than enough to pose for a group images just after I woofed down my food.  Actually, convincing Filipinos to pose for a picture does not choose a entire lot of effort…..


Uh oh, boys – we dropped one more one…….  This was taken down on the Dumaguete waterfront.  Newlyweds often stop by in this article for some skilled wedding pictures.  This few plainly reveals the Spanish heritage that nevertheless operates strongly in the Philippines – she, in individual, seems Really Spanish.   ?



This was also taken down on Rizal Boulevard.  This younger fisherman is sorting by way of some small fish that has been drying atop a fish entice.  In scenario you have not heard, dried fish is Enormous in the Philippines and possesses a instead exclusive odor when staying fried up.  ?


Condo Sign with Starbucks

 It’s official – Dumaguete has strike the huge time.   This condo is staying made on the southern conclusion of the boulevard.  And given that foreigners simply cannot possess land in the Philippines but CAN have condos, I am guaranteed a variety of the models have currently been spoken for.  I would not head getting a unit myself, and if I experienced the resources, I may well just do it.  Dumaguete is likely to do practically nothing but continue to improve and the selling price of properties will (possibly) go on to climb.  The locating of the spot is also pretty frikken sweet and it will profit from the great breezes that appear in of the h2o.  Also, if you glance pretty shut, you will see a Starbucks store on the to start with floor – there goes the neighborhood…



This younger working day performs the early morning change on their family’s  produce stall in the marketplace.  After that, she heads off to Foundation College for a full day of classes.  Now, that is a get the job done ethic!



 I was tests out the Sony’s zoom functionality and took this surreptitious shot – felt like I was an investigator on Cheaters on a little something.  Regardless, I imagined is caught a fairly great minute of a couple using an early evening stroll together the boulevard.  (Apologies to the subjects.)



I took this at the similar time I was using a movie of these fishermen clearing their early morning nets.  The video clip high-quality of the Cybershot is quite very good, and we will in all probability be utilizing it additional than the GoPro when it arrives to obtaining footage.  The online video of this also came out very sweet, and man, was that a lot of fish…… 



I enjoy the majestic acacia trees that line Rizal Boulevard.  They are definitely beautiful (and shielded by law, I believe).  



Here’s a nearby using his pooch for a stroll.  I observed the image interesting as you do not typically see that breed of hound in the Philippines – commonly it is Japanese Spitzes.  



Here’s my neighbor out using him little one cow for a stroll.  He comes by each and every morning and we often say hi.  He does not speak English that well and I am clueless as to bisaya and Tagalog, but our message even so gets conveyed.



Here’s a typical sight out on the water in front of the city – one of the ferries that endlessly ply concerning Dumaguete and Dapitan on Mindanao.  The ferry method in the Philippines is substantial, linking the thousands of islands alongside one another and transferring innumerable travellers and cargo each and every and every single day.  

So, I hope you savored this installment.  We took some time off from our You Tube and web page these previous pair of months but count on some new content material up shortly!
