I set my phone to alarm at exactly 4:00 in the morning because I will meet my friends at exactly 5:00 am to attend the photo walk at Quiapo, Manila. Suddenly, I did not notice any vibration or noise that would wake me up because of being drunk last night with my friends celebrating his farewell party. So when I saw the sunlight that stricken in my window makes my whole nerves startled, it jolted my whole body to wake up and my hand was like crawling its own to look for my phone. I was shocked when I opened my phone and saw the time and it is already 5:00 in the morning. I was planning to cancel it, but I do not want to miss the opportunity and what would my friends think of about me. I bolted to stood up, went to the bathroom and do the 2 minutes shower. With my reddish and sleepy eyes I arrived at the meeting place 20 minutes late.
Quiapo, Manila is 9 kilometers far from Makati City and 18 minutes travel within current traffic. We rode a jeepney to Taft Avenue and transfer to another jeepney going to Quiapo. We arrived in the place earlier that we thought because it is still early in Saturday morning and the traffic is not yet heavy.
When we set our foot at the tinted cement in front of the famous Quiapo Church, the journey as a street photographer begun. Luckily, even without enough sleep, I manage to capture the beauty of Quiapo. I hope you will like it guys.
