Solo Traveling in Calbayog : Two Splendid Waterfalls To Chase in Calbayog

 Two Splendid Waterfalls To Chase in Calbayog

I tried solo traveling once because I wanted to experience freedom of taking risks and of dealing with personally unknown ventures to find out if it is really liberatingly beautiful. I found the answer when I visited Calbayog.

It was not all fun; there were times when I got scared while jaunting but at the end of the day I set aside the negativities encountered along the way and thought of the valuable lessons learned in this experience. That is why Calbayog already has carved an etch in my heart even though I was there two years ago. But it is only now that I felt the desire to write this blog. I have shaken off the lethargy in my being and have stopped my addiction to Mobile Legend, haha 😂. I have to stop or else that would be the death of me, ugh!

Anyway, here are the photos taken during the sunset hike in Mt. Naupa of my friend and me. Just photos, no words… Continue reading “Sunset Sesh in Mt. Naupa”

Night Mobile Photography: Seven Picture-Worthy Places in Cebu  Captured at Night Plus a Bit of Surprise

 

Did you ever feel frustrated after not getting your ideal photos during night time?
Let’s face it, night shots are always hard to achieve. It’s a dilemma for everyone who wants to capture that perfect snap without getting blurry, grainy or out of focus especially with mobile phones.

With the advent of technology nowadays, mobile phones now are engineered with manual modes or with auto night shots on their camera settings. With the aid of stabilizer, night mobile shots are now perfected to capture the image you desire to take.

The only thing that matters now is to determine the places ideal for night shots here in Cebu. Cebu is now brimming with beautiful places in pictures but most of these photos are usually taken during daytime. How about taking photos at night time?

Sights Seen by a First Time Visitor in Manila Who Never Thought of Seeing Them

Sights Seen by a First Time Visitor in Manila Who Never Thought of Seeing Them

 

Find time to explore around. You’ll never know what adventure may lie ahead. It may be climbing mountains, swimming in beach resorts, visiting museums or strolling around boulevards. Go out, capture scenic moments. Learn and have a meaningful experience. Gather memories and gain knowledge. Trust me, they’re good for the body and soul. – Chasing Potatoes

 

I’ve been to Manila a number of times, but I never got the chance to go places. My routine was answering the demands of work and of sleep. Schedule was always not enough. Then one lucky day, one of my colleagues accidentally booked our flight back to Cebu on a Sunday, so we had an extra non-working day which was Saturday. Horrraaaah! We could explore and roam around the city but we have to dig our own pocket for the expenses, of course.

There are a lot of tourist spots in Metro Manila but these were the only places we visited due to limited time.

My 100 Days in Mobile Photography and Still Can’t Believe the Outcome of My Photos

My 100 Days in Mobile Photography and Still Can’t Believe the Outcome of My Photos

 

If you have been following me on my blog or other social media accounts, you may have noticed that my photos were mostly produced by DSLR or rather they were  images from my action camera. I have a smartphone, too,  but I was not enticed to  use it  for my travel photography because it was not able to produce photos that reached the level of my standard, the worthy to be uploaded-kind. But everything changed when I got my Huawei P9. Initially, I never believed smartphones could do what DSLR could,  but with the advent of technology and phone application nowadays, smartphones can  now produce good quality photos. Just like Huawei P9 which has a dual camera with superior lens partnered and co-engineered with Leica.  What could be better than this? Right?
