ENTRY #12"I, spy."Banaue, Ifugao, Luzon, Philippines. 2/2014.Banaue Rice Terracephoto by: Rey.

On a hike towards the famous rice terraces of the Ifugao province, I passed by homes and businesses of locals that cater to the passer-bys. Fortunately, although I look touristy and a confusing american accent, people were intrigued by my height, appearance, and facial hair. Kids will be kids and they love playing. I passed by these two kids and after I took their photo, they started going a gesture with their hands as if they had binoculars. An exchange of gestures is always heartwarming.

ENTRY #11"heavens bath"Mitla, Oaxaca, Mexico. 2/2013.Hierve el Agua (The Water Boils)photo by: Rey.

It took about 3+ hours of commute, a handful of transfers, narrow roads up the mountainside, and heat before arriving at the peak. We worked up an appetite getting here but we did not know what we were expecting. In actuality, Hierve el Agua was recommended as a destination by good friends Luis. One couldn’t calculate how beautiful it could be. Back to the appetite, fortunately- it wasn’t heavily bombarded by visitors. The locals are aware enough to sell Tlayudas for the customers. If you haven’t had it yet, you have not lived. At the top of the mountain, there is a pool full of minerals supposedly equivalent to the fountain of youth. As we were leaving, locals in a group field trip arrived and dove right in. With every right, it was insanely hot. The photo is of a group of kids enjoying themselves with some of the guardians.

ENTRY #10"restless"San Francisco, Calif. 6/2014.photo by: Rey.

It was a sunny day, high noon blazing with such conviction. The person in the photo was sleeping perhaps without worry of the world. My camera had 3200 film in it which didnt give me much option but to shoot and hope for the best. What was this person thinking? Were they dreaming? Did they feel the sun? There was a great amount of grain and it is quite appealing.

ENTRY #9
"topless thrills"
San Francisco, Calif.. c.2013.
photo by: Rey.

Performing a walkthrough of downtown San Francisco and you never fail to see things that capture the imagination. I was walking towards Powell street against traffic and an elderly man caught my eye across the street. Peacefully sitting and minding his own business waiting for the bus. Reactively, I was slightly interested - but not to budge to chase a photo. As i peered and the full frontal view came evident, I realized that the ad added a layer into the man sitting at the bus kiosk. The juxtaposition was too much to ignore. I cross the street dodging traffic and composed in the middle in between lanes.

ENTRY #8"utopic jam"Portland, Oregon. c. 2011.photo by: Rey.

A wandering venture at dusk in oregon away from all the major area led to this photograph. Along the lines of being lost, I heard the echoes of a harmonica, which became a compass to find my bearings. I follow the sounds and wound up in a staircase where I saw 2 gentlemen jamming. Sweet savory malt liquor and a good tune kept these two and made it easy to blend to take the photo. I didn’t just leave- I stayed, unaware that I was at their company - they proceeded to a groove. When done, the gentleman playing the harmonica introduced his name and taught me the handshake of his indigenous ancestors. Just 2 guys on the road enjoying a brew.

ENTRY #7"commuter"Apalit, Pampanga, Philippines. 2/2014.photo by: Rey.

A morning scent of bread walk the street and woke me up. The morning starts early and passerby’s make their way through. The sun shone and lit the horizon and I couldn’t help but rise and touch the clouds. The photo basically presented itself, fairly simple. A man bicycling the main road (which there is only one). Quite unique, wearing a rice hat. Nothing fancy or intricate, just a daily commute.

ENTRY #4"City of Champions"San Francisco, Ca. October 2012.Mission Districtphoto by: Rey.

I recall being in Civic Center the final moments the 2012 World Series was winding down. There it was, near ending of a sweep, a 2-2 count from Romo, caught Cabrera looking.
The City, was… in euphoria. I gathered myself to focus knowing that the celebration was going to be bananas. I headed to BART with plans to head to the Mission District to photograph the celebration.
These negatives is a 2-frame sequenced photograph into one. It summarizes the madness and content of a City.

ENTRY #5"M5"England, UK. August 2011.Stonehengephoto by: Rey.

I was coming back to London from Stonehenge after a long days commute and sightseeing of one of the wonders of the world. We were in a slow steady crawl before coming to a complete stop of traffic. I didn’t mind it. I wasn’t in a rush to go anywhere. Everything looked so new that I just stared. Even driving on the left side of the road is a complete shocker that took days to adjust to. I was staring out the window when I saw the reflection of a young kid peeking out, minding his own business. I just stared at him, without a sound, without flinching a muscle. He eventually came into a slow freeze himself and thats when I struck with this photo.

ENTRY #3"London Eye"London, England. Aug. 2011.photo by: Rey.

It was harsh sunlight, peering straight into the sky. I was walking about from the loading dock towards the House of Parliament and I happened to look up. It was quite a feat to see it slowly churning as it gave people a unique vantage point of the whole city. I wanted to tell it without the background of the rest of London. Little did I know that I was overexposing at such an intense rate. As with many photos, the time difference between taking the photo and developing to see the negative was probably 2 months. When I saw the frame, I said to myself that the “eye” pops. The grain just make it that much more intriguing.
