One of the nice things about the new toy (Nikon D5100) is that it takes better shots when the car is moving, at the right settings and conditions. A few weeks ago we went on a road trip for some R and R. I think I managed to get better photos this time with the Nikon. Well, they seemed better because they weren’t all blurry.
Here are the views from the Front Seat…
One of my favorite parts of any road trip is the drive to the destination – the anticipation, the sights, the colours…I just love the blue sky, greens and (almost) clear roads ahead
Soldiers on their way to some happening…officers in the bus and the rest of them in the trucks?
Stay away from the big boys…
Stranded pink buses?
Next time I’m going to count the billboards on the long bridge in Bulacan…
Its the “Guess who’s Tata and Icto” game
I pray very hard this never happens to my little ride…
I’ve always wanted to get a pic from the top of the bridge – here it is – looking over the main street of the lovely City of San Fernando
According to the “tindera” (and my Mama) the basins at the bottom left are made from scrap aircraft metal. My Mama’s basin which she bought when I was in preschool are still around with minor dents along the basin rim but none at all on the body. I guess it must be true.
3% interest is very low, just not sure if its compounded or monthly…Channel of Gold – Canaan’s Pawnshop
Lots of these dust-building work going on along the highway
Another photo I’ve been wanting to take – the Breast of the Maiden, so called because of the resemblance of its shape to a young lady’s breast. Nothing dirty there, just an appreciation of the beauty of the human form. It’s an old name, too.
A trip can’t be complete without a stop at the Ja!
I like those little streamers hung across the road
It’s a very naughty sign and quite old judging from the way it looks and the building it’s on. A reminder of the Olongapo City’s past. That area is giving way to “wholesome” resorts that cater to families and companies looking for a place to “build the team”.
So here is where the signs are born…
I felt like I would touch the clouds if I reached up…
Our little lot where we hope to build a retirement home some day is somewhere near those yonder hills
Note, the store provides “software convertion”
The seller hid his face when he saw the camera but gave a thumbs-up when I was done
wonder what it’s like inside
A roller coaster ride in the middle of the highway
Merry Christmas, Pajero!
We made it to the Expressway – woohoo!
Oh no! traffic jam on the “express”-way
poor car and owner
not so lucky
Off to the next market to sell the left-over produce
perfect for hauling your buddies around
The All-Purpose Utility Tricycle
The sign at the bottom says – literally – you got a problem buddy?
