I am a hobbyist photographer who's making a big shift to mobile photography, a frustrated cook and a wanderlust who don't have the luxury of time.
  • Thank you for sharing these. Found all the pictures super impressive. It’s tough to call them mobile-shots at all.

    Loved the pic by Philip Am Acibron Guay for tremendous creativity and the one by Louie John Fuentes‎ for its Composition.

    Super Awesome I must say.

    • Glad you find them interesting Kcalpesh. I get goosebumps every time I check on this photos 😀

  • Waaah! I’m a sucker of sunset and this post made me drool with a lot of great sunset shots! Not just that, it showcases a lot of Cebu bloggers that I admire. Seeing their works made me love Cebu more. Every sunset shot was totally different from the other but it gives the same warm feeling to the one looking at the photos. 🙂

    • Cebu is such an awesome place. Who’s your pick among those photos Kris?
