the world as I see it


Armed with a four year old Vivitar ViviCam 3705 (or, on occasions, a slightly malfunctioning Canon Powershot A95) and a hobby, I started this blog hoping that I’ll be able to document (through words and images) as much of my surroundings as possible.

I’m looking forward to the day when I’m already all wrinkly and crooked, sitting in front of the computer (or whatever device it is that we’ll be using to surf the web with), perhaps, with my children and grandchildren, taking a stroll back to a time which would have been long forgotten by then for the most part. THAT is this blog’s main purpose.

And together with that, I am hoping that, as I go along, I’ll eventually be able to turn this into something big… a blog so wonderful… one that will be worth everyone’s time to view and/or read.

I can dream, can’t I?

    Hello there!

    I was browsing the net looking for a picture of a halo-halo vendor when I chanced upon the photo you took of a halo-halo stand in a beach in Zambales. I really like the picture. May I know if I can use it in my first blog post for this year?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi BCS. I’m making a video work for an event celebrating the liberation of Manila. The concept is identical to your then-and-now series, but I’m shooting the present in video, with live sound . I’d already done some work on it, but just discovered your blog yesterday. I won’t be using your original photographs, but I would like to reshoot some of the vintage photos on your site as part of my work. Would that be okay with you? I’ll credit you.

    • BCS said

      I don’t see any problem in that, Tad, and I appreciate very much your telling me all about it.By all means, do the shoot. 🙂

      I wish I’d get to see your work when it’s done

      Anyway, thanks… I wish you all the best on your project. 🙂

    You are one sweet man my friend. I didn’t know you had a Vivitar. My friend bought me a toy cam, a Vivitar IC100 I think. Anyways. Don’t know anything about Lomo. I’m good with SLRs. God bless you! =D

    Hi BCS,

    Congratulations on the great and well-researched content! I wanted to request your permission to use some of your photographs of Sto. Domingo Church for a small section on Bluprint magazine? The photographs were great, I’d just need one or two of the edifice. Kindly email me back your response.

    Thank you very much!

    I just came from the Philippines after being away for 17 years. I think I saw a photo somewhere on Facebook, which led me to your website. By the way, very nice pictures!

    It was a pleasure going through your website, especially viewing images of Quezon City (where I grew up) and Boracay (which I visited last month). Do you think you could include images of the Quezon Memorial Circle? The structure in front of Quezon City Hall?

    Awesome website. Great images. 🙂

    • BCS said

      Hi James, thank you very much for your kind words, and thank you so much for visiting. 🙂 With regards to the Quezon Memorial Circle, I don’t pass by that area very often, but if I get the chance to take some pictures of it, I will. 🙂
