    I took the new camera out for a walk round Arnaiz Avenue in Pasay City this afternoon. I'm liking the Fuji in many ways but its taking time to get used to the shutter button. My old Sony had a much smoother release with less travel, so I often end up not putting enough pressure on to take the shot, then over compensating, then ending up with slightly soft shots even at 1/125. Still, the good people of Pasay are kind enough to put up with my fumbling and no doubt as I take more shots I'll adjust. Here are a few street portraits of folks on the Avenue today.

    Manila is such an interesting place, I met some truly great people there earlier this year. Fantastic shot of the flower vendor!

    Haven't been around QC much so far but I did go to visit the Farmer's Market at Cubao. Fascinating place - I need to go back with my camera. If you're ever back visiting let me know and we can meet up. I'll be here for a couple of years.
