A livable light!

In a recent photo walk outside the Bacolod Central Market I was able to photograph the scene in a low lighted situation using my primitive Canon 350D and until now I am happy with the results…

Camera settings: F4 ISO 400 S – 1/80 secs.

Manny Pacquiao gets away with a win!

The people of Bacolod City took time off to watch and cheer on the country’s boxing pride Manny Pacquaio at the Bacolod BAYS Center earlier today.

City Officials came to watch and cheer on Bacolod’s adopted son.

Vendors get extra income with an event that gathered thousands in attendance.

The first five rounds made the crowd to wonder if Pacquiao could really knock down Marquez.

The people on the lower row seemed happy when Pacquiao landed combinations on Marquez but the people on the upper level shows otherwise.

This little girl on the other hand seemed to be confused why she’s here.

Mixed reactions as the fight nears end.

Then it’s winning time for Manny Pacquiao while this kid thinks he won too as he collected a lot of plastic bottles that will be good as dinner for tonight.

A sweet street discovery – honey lemon on stick!

I was waiting for the dismissal of classes of my daughter at ETCS III this morning and happen to notice an area where students get their snacks at the sidewalks of the school…

and here it goes – students started to swarm over this vendor…

and the coins started to pour in for this sweet treat…

more and more students came to buy the honey lemon on the stick – P1 peso fun and sugar shock…

the sweet and gooey honey lemon is indeed a sure hit for kids…

and the students keeps on coming for this sweet street treat…Have a sweet day everyone!

A Sunday afternoon at the Plaza

10 Images that gives you a glimpse of life at the Bacolod Public Plaza…

Faded Glory – one of the fountain areas at the Plaza which used to be the attraction of the place since then.

I could still recall having a photo at this spot when I was a kid.

A CONFLICTING SIGN – While it is said by the first sign that people should avoid washing their feet and and plates at the drinking fountain – the attached sign says otherwise.

Photography and the technological advances of the times also limit the chances of Plaza Photographers to earn a living at the Plaza nowadays.

Erning Sajo has been photographing people at the Plaza since the 80’s – during the advent of the Digital Era his income turned low due to the increase of digital camera ownership – but he is still hopeful that his client would pass by the Plaza and have their photos taken by him.

Under the shade of this old tree are checker players that spend their time at the park playing.

The light that passes through the leaves of the tree illuminates the playing board for the players.

And who would have thought that there is a one month old baby named Joemarie at this makeshift crib.

Lucky Joemarie lives with his mother at the Plaza by the day and sleeps in front of Amar Emporium at night time.
