My passion for Batanes still lingers even if I’m back in Manila. When I received an invite for the opening of the art exhibit “Kaynakman nu Ivatan (Treasures of Ivatan)” I decided to attend since the place is near my area and I’m very much interested on how the artworks look like. The art exhibit is at Galerie Y in SM Megamall. It was a simple opening, nothing fancy and let the art speak for themselves. I got to talk to some of the young and talented members of Yaru nu Artes Ivatan group whose works are displayed, namely Xavier, Jaypee and Javier. They are all based in Batanes but have been in Manila since the first week of April to prepare for this exhibit.

Backpack Photography Batanes Travel and Outdoors Workshop has just ended. Here are video highlights of the Workshop held last June 24-27, 2010. It was 4 days and nights of waking up before the sun, humidity and power outages. But the refreshing views, great weather through out and the company of enthusiastic group of photographers with sunny and cheerful air made it all worthwhile.
