I’m officially a VC student now. I have a lot of feelings about this sudden change.
Jino and I arrived late and drenched and we missed Ivan Theory’s set and they ran out of coffee cause their coffee machine broke but it was cool cause Ang Bandang Shirley played and Aly from Ourselves the Elves sang for them. Totally worth it.
I thought I saw some of the pictures I took from before hanging on the photo wall but I’m not sure.
Shout out to sumbungero, who made me smile even if I seemed pretty nr when I met you. I swear it was really nice meeting you.

Come visit the UP Town Center tomorrow for great music and great company. Plus, I hear there’s free donuts! ♥
(I used to be an applicant of the UP Underground Music Community so I know what I’m talking about. They’re really great.)
i’ve been sorting through my old pictures so expect a lot of oldies in the next few days
I saw this Bela Borsodi photo and laughed way too hard. The parallelisms are uncanny KR. Help.
Day 2 of CYANOTYPE Workshop
I’m starting on Day 2 because I forgot to bring my camera on the first day of the workshop. Boo.
We started our class with a short lecture about some notable figures in the field of photography. A guy named Carleton E. Watkins was mentioned and you should check him out if you like landscape photos. Grade A stuff, guys.
After the lecture, we filed out of the room to get our primed surfaces to finally start printing. There’s a lot of science involved so I’ll try to explain how the process went in layman terms.
The day before, we primed papers, canvases and even glass with a mixture of potassium ferricyanide and ferric ammonium citrate diluted in water. It was explained that both substances are very toxic and sensitive to light. If exposed to UV light, the color changes. With that being said, if certain parts of the treated paper was covered and was placed under the sun, it would leave a mark shaped whatever part was covered. Example, if you leave a flower on top of the paper, you’ll get a flower shaped print.
I actually learned something. Wow.
On my way to FA with Ji, Kuya Obet waved at us and invited us to ride the monorail with some other administrators since it was having test rides now. It was pretty okay
(especially if you want to get away from the searing heat outside since the air conditioning is pretty grade A). After answering a survey, AAR’s It Ends Tonight started playing on our way out. Talk about blast from the past.
