It's time for a break from the daily lo-fi photos. This set is exclusively from a photowalk last Saturday with Bulacan Letratista friends. We ventured into Binondo armed only with our phone cameras - while doing a little food trip along the way. It was fun, it was hot, it was delicious, it was convenient. Hahaha, I was too happy not to carry the weight of my DSLR and just snapping leisurely. Binondo folks were also friendlier because they thought I was taking photos just for the heck of it. Look like a tourist, they'll treat you like a tourist. =)
I sneaked in some captures of Plaza Miranda and Quiapo Church, then proceeded to Chinatown proper where we did our foodtrip. I had with me a new iPhone accessory which I was all too happy to test : the Olloclip fisheye lens. Such a joy to use. (I'll make a review next time.)
As the case in all of my posts here in 365 in Lo-Fi, all of these photos were taken and post-processed with the iPhone. For this set, however, I only used the Snapseed app for post-processing. Maybe a case of laziness or probably due to time constraint (my next "365" post is due soon, I have to give these posts some time in between).
So yup, no effects and filters were applied to these photos. Processing was limited to cropping, adjustments (ambience/contrast/selective-saturation), increase of details, and black-and-white conversion. I did use the Diptic app for the last four photos, but that's it.

Make sure you read the captions on the food shots. The info might come in handy on your own Binondo foodtrip.
I sure hope I get to do this type of photowalk more often. It's a whole lot of effortless fun. Try it! Or maybe next time you should join.
Till the next post! =)
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.
