Meet Caraga Regional Athletes: Table Tennis

Butuan City Table Tennis Delegates, Feb 2018 (Fuji Xe1+ 27mm)

Yesterday, I happened to see a group of children milling around the entrance of Sangguniang Panglungsod building in Butuan City Hall. My first instinct was to take some silhouette photos for my facebook group page (Butuanon Mobile Photo-Walks) while I wait for my mother to finish with work. It took her some time to come out from her office so I decided to talk to the kids where I learned that they were Butuan City's table tennis delegates for the Sports Regional Meet. I was excited to talk to them for a bit. I couldn't resist sharing my experience also as a Regional Athlete in Highschool.

The Carga Regional Athletic Meet (CRAM) will have their opening ceremony on the 25th at Robinson's Place at 8 in the morning. (PIA Caraga).

Good luck guys! Do your best and make our city proud :)

Annual Festival

Every year Butuan, like Cebu, celebrate and honor Sto. Nino. In Cebu its called Sinulog, in Butuan we call it Kahimunan.

I already posted a few photos about this Butuan event last month but since I still have a lot of photos I didn't post, I thought I'd do it now (Even if sum-o na :D). There's an annual photography contest too (I didn't place, unfortunately). This year is the fourth time running. They just posted the winners and I thought since the event is finally over and done I'd post a couple of my entries for this blog.

Kudos to all participants to the contest and congrats to the winners! It takes balls to go out and send your photos to be judged. Whether we win or not- we still learn something and that's a win in itself (So say the loser :D JK!)

I'm so proud to see the talent coming out to show their stuff. Congrats again winners, sponsors, participants, organizers, and judges.

One Saturday Afternoon in Magsaysay Bridge #3


Skylab (Lenovo S921)

This photo was also taken during the first photo- walk activity by Butuanon Mobile Photo-Walk Facebook Group (add this group everyone is welcome!).

This form of public transportation is my favorite one to take photo of: the "skylab".

In Cebu, they have scooters with their own uber- like app going around the city picking up passengers. In Butuan (actually anywhere in the Philippines), this is a common mode of transportation especially those remote locations inaccessible by four-wheeled vehicles.

Magsaysay Bridge #2: Lolo and Grandson


Lolo and Apo by Lyra Viola (Fuji Xe1+ Helios 44)

During the Magsaysay Bridge Photo-Walk I met this grandfather and his grandson. It made me want to take pictures of them both. I was fortunate enough that he allowed me to take a couple of photos for the blog. I wondered if his apo will remember this moment in the future: An afternoon on a bike with lolo (grandpa).

I didn't really get to talk to him because there were two other guys he was in a conversation with. Soon, maybe I'll finally muster the motivation to start interviewing my portrait street models instead of just taking their photos and leave. I asked him if he has an email address, unfortunately he said he doesn't.
