* Project 365

I failed to start January 1st for my first photography project which is the the project 365.

365 because I need to take a photo per day for 365 days or 1 year. I started January 12, 2011 with a photo of my dog Astro. Wishing I could finish and complete this project and have it printed once I'm done.

* Edsa Shrine Quick Shoot

Since 2009 I wanted to take photos of the historical Edsa Shrine but I don't have company and there is no time and finally I was able to do it alone this time. There was an FHM event at Robinsons Galeria from 6pm to 8pm so I planned that I would take photos of the Edsa Shrine afterwards so I bring my tripod with me. I felt bad because when I reached Magalanes area it was raining, I attended the FHM event and had dinner with my friends and I thank God because it was not raining anymore so I was able to find a location and take photos of the Edsa Shrine.

* SM Mall of Asia Solo Walk

January 13, 2011

One of my New Year's resoulution is to be more serious and active with Photography and since it's my off I told myself to take photos and stroll around SM Mall of Asia. I went tehre around 4pm and arrived around 5:30pm from Laguna. Since it's early I stroll around and eat first. Around 7pm and since it was already dark I walked around and took photos, I started at the San Mig at the Bay area, the fountain, the mall itself and my last stop was the big Globe in front of the mall. I'm happy and glad with the photos that I took that day. Tiring but it's worth it, I got home around 9:30pm.

* FHM January 2011 featuring Carla Humphries

It's my second time to meet this month's FHM cover girl Carla Humphries. It was a good start for FHM Philippines to have a new cover girl and the FHM issue itself is very nice and classy. I can say that FHM magazine has evolved and ay time passes by it improves and becomes better that's why FHM is still the number one Men's magazine here in the Philippines.

Anyways back to the cover girl, Carla Humphries is a commercial model and actress here in the Philippines. She apperared in different TV shows like Berks and more, She also appeared in movies like First Romance, First Day High and more. Carla was really nice and I'm glad that I had my FHM copy signed.
