Rain’s already started pouring these past few days. And I am starting to think that days where glorious light seemed endless are about to end. But we insisted. To squeeze every opportunity each weekend has to offer.
I got an invite from fellow hobbyists for a one day shoot down south. Nothing extraordinaire as far as typical road trip is concerned where you only have roughly around 3-4 hours of sun down shooting. Or so I thought.
Anilao, Batangas 2010
We were on the road for 3 hours when suddenly, right after having gone past that last toll gate, the van gave up on us. Of course, there’s always a plan B, but the excitement has been cut short a bit for a while. So while waiting for the “rescue” van to arrive, healthy conversations here and there started to arise. Out came the cameras to capture some BTS as the only interesting thing to shoot from where we pulled over was the KM 49 road sign. Stories went on for quite an hour when the driver finally advised that we can now proceed. Glad to say that we made it in time for the golden hour despite all these and that we still have plenty of time to have some sort of a breather prior to the shoot.
Looking back, I think the best part of these kinds of trips aren’t the ones that you were able to produce in such a compressed time frame. But rather, those little things that made such trips memorable. Of course, getting a good souvenir shot nonetheless is a bonus.
Thanks for the company guys.
Have a great week ahead.
