I think the last supermoon of 2017 signals the beautiful end of a year full of highs rather than lows, as compared to my 2016, so I decided to dedicate a Haiku to the beguiling Luna.
I like to sing thanks
To the moon and to the stars,
Guided the year to clarity
To feel contentment and power
To see the better and to find,
Myself finding a little light
There is a quaint yet amazing cafe near our workplace. It is called “Blocleaf Cafe” and their croissant and cortado both deserve a two thumbs up.
You can find them at 1850 M.H. Del Pilar St., Malate, Manila Philippines.
Visit there Facebook page or check out their Instagram account for more details.
Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored or whatsoever. I just really, really like the place so I went an extra mile to share them to the rest of the world. 🙂
Shoot before PT treatment :-).
Used an entirely different setup from the usual.
This set of portraits was unusual not because it was planned, but because we just had time to spare a.k.a free time from our typical Sunday (Grad school is life).
Here’s Pol/Paul. A former intern of mine, now turned colleague and classmate in graduate school.
We would like to thank the Starbucks near our school for having such a lovely hallway hiding in a very unusual spot, near the toilets haha.
This set was taken using an iPhone 6.
This year’s “Pink Moon” reminded me of Coldplay’s Parachutes album cover (even though I know it is a globe) and Up Dharma Down’s Luna.
It was another long weekend, we experimented with make-up, and decided to take some portraits. For this set I just used my phone to take and edit the photographs.
Shout out to my sister for being the crazy “Creative Director” for this impromptu shoot. 🙂
A few months back, my good friend Edang asked me to take a few portraits of her to use for her blog, Butterflies and Hurricanes.
Thank you to my dear friend Hannah for accompanying me and helping me take Edang’s photos.
Here are a few of my favorite photos…

These past two years, I’ve been interested in shooting portraits instead of the usual landscape photography I partake in. So, I think it would be wise to document my “Little Portrait Adventures” and start a series here on the blog entitled “Jerace (Tries To) Shoots Portraits”. I started this so-called portrait series years back on my VSCO account, and then tried uploading some on my Instagram account, and now to my EyeEm account. I am not very particular with how I shoot my subjects, and I am also not very particular with the equipment I use, whether my phone or my camera, because I am firm believer that the photograph depends on who shoots and not with what you use. 🙂
So for the first upload on #JeraceShootsPortraits, I shot some portraits of my dear friend Talna. These photos were taken during our Chinese New Year photo walk.
January 28, 2017, a few friends and I decided to have a photowalk around Binondo, Manila along with experiencing the Lunar New Year first hand on the streets of the Oldest China Town in the world.
We met at around 10:30 am at a mall in Binondo. Started our photowalk on the different streets and alleyways at 11 am. We end at around 5 pm and ended our day with cups of coffee and tea at The Den, a coffee shop located at Escolta, Manila.
Here are some of the pictures I’ve taken using my Nikon D3200 with its kit lens.
Hello, I’ve decided to create yet another blog. I just want to introduce myself to you.
My name is Jerace Garcia and I live in the chaotic yet beautiful city of Manila, Philippines. I am 25 years old and currently in between stopovers. I am interested in photography, books, music, and writing (even if I am not really that great at it).
I like to read, take pictures, and drink hot beverages
