Off The Shelf: My Neil Gaiman Book Stash


Neil Gaiman is probably one of my favorite authors and human beings in the whole world aside from J.K. Rowling. I have so much respect for his work.

I know my stash is not yet complete, and I am on the process of acquiring, and reading all his work. I even influenced my mother to read his books which is a big deal for me, because I can discuss books with my mother which is very rare. Don’t get me wrong, she has no problem with my affinity to books. It’s just she doesn’t like to read much. So making her read one of Mr. Gaiman’s book is a great deal for me.

Off The Shelf: Three Amazing Reads


I am back with a book and bookish posts people of the internet. After a year of an abysmal reading slump, which I would never ever wish on someone to experience, I finally got the time to rearrange my shelves and pick up where I left off.  Continue reading “Off The Shelf: Three Amazing Reads”

#JeraceShootsPortraits: Dorcas

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.


Chinese New Year 2017

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.

This space is for my thoughts

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).
