When Pokpok meets Stormtrooper (a bayside photowalk)

Voltaire “Bes” Yap, my college batchmate cum photography enthusiast wanted to do a photowalk in Manila so I suggested starting from Harbor Square beside the Cultural Center of the Philippines and ending at Harbor View restaurant by the Quirino Grandstand.

It was a good long walk; worthwhile for the photos taken and friendship shared.

For the record, Bes said that “Pokpok” is a Thai restaurant in Oregon and my sister won the Stormtrooper tshirt from the Flipgeeks’ Star Wars movie / charity benefit.

The walk ended with dinner with my wife and children at Harbor View. Sinigang and grilled prawns to replace the calories we burned away in our walk.

Bes said he recorded 10,000 steps today so that is an accomplishment. But I’m more interested in the photos he took. Tag me on your obra maestras, Bes!
