[Batch 5 : 7 - 20 August] In my previous post (Batch 4), I did mention to watch out for the next one. This is it. A special set with a "words and lyrics" theme. I had a couple of live concerts to watch on the first days of this set's duration, so I thought maybe I'd do a lyrics-inspired iPhone photo series.
I'm a music lover and an avid concert-goer. Coldplay, Pete Yorn, Norah Jones, Switchfoot, America, Don Henley (of The Eagles), David Gates (of Bread), The Cascades, Survivor, Fra Lippo Lippi, Don McLean, The Corrs, Ford & Coley, Toto, The Cranberries, Ed Kowalczyk (of LIVE), Vertical Horizon, are some of the international artists I've seen perform live (that I can remember). And a slew of local artists too. I was so amped for August as the Smashing Pumpkins and Snow Patrol came to Manila to headline their own shows. Big-name SP bands to add to my list. Things looked bleak at first because of the terrible monsoon rains that flooded Metro Manila. The Pumpkins' August 7 concert (the first day of this set), was moved back a day, thankfully (I thought it was going to get cancelled altogether). Thus it became back-to-back with Snow Patrol (August 9). So yeah, calamity turned to musical awesomeness in a span of 3 days. What a week. And what a start to this set. I'm glad I was able to carry on and finish the theme until the end. Well, it wasn't everyday that a song idea popped into my head, so on some days mere words were enough. (Excuses, I know.)

I'm not a layout person. I've long stopped using frames/borders on my (DSLR) photos (I want my photos to be straightforward and stand on their own), but Phoster and Filterstorm made this set possible for me. Check it out.
I hope you liked this batch. Drop by and view the next one. Till then. =)
365 in Lo-Fi
For a whole year (365 days), I took a photo with my mobile phone camera and presented them here, in batches. Lower quality as the technology is still improving, just the same phone photography has altered the way people take and look at pictures.
