It was his hair I noticed at first. Then an unsmiling face. He had a healthy hair as compared to my thinning one, hehe. My current workmate in
People will think that we are two crazy guys (in full battle gears – camera / tripod / backpack) roaming around the city. We had tried photoshoots from sunrise to sundown, crashed temples, experimented with all the settings and angles, pretended to be locals and took candid shots of people and children bribing them with, hmm, candies. Haha! These activities made me realized he is not that serious after all.
By the way, his name is Carlos aka Caloy, now, one of my closest friends. Its his 30th (Jan 14) birthday today that’s why I’m forced to make this entry. Anyway, Caloy’s enthusiasm when it comes to photography is unmatched. He really tried to learn every details of the camera, an attitude which I envy as I hate opening the manuals. Of course, he had to explain it to me in a simpler way.
And before I forget, he loves posing in front of the camera. He is a willing model and volunteer provided the shots must be taken in side view. Here’s a slideshow of him in one of our informal photoshoots. (By the way, did we really have a formal shoot?)
Caloy, that’s all I can afford for your birthday! Have a great day my friend and thanks for the gift of friendship. (Pakasal na kayo ni Moshy mo hehe).
Happy Birthday and Halong Pirmi.
