But surprisingly, I had so much fun. There’s a certain beauty in recreating photos that I learned to appreciate that day. Using a Canon EOS66 (a type of film SLR camera), I took these photos of modern day Intra. I’m proud to say that I also developed them myself!
Definitely a glimpse to the past. I could almost picture Filipinos of this era in their polished looks walking these cobbled streets. Pretty enchanting, if you ask me.
Probably one of my favuorite photos that I took. It’s cliché, I know – but there’s something about it that speaks to me. Add in the dust and accidental scratches in the film… I think it’s lovely.
P.S. I didn’t include the photos wherein we recreated some of the oldest pictures taken in Manila because this post isn’t about that (I think that deserves a separate entry) – this is about being a flâneur in one of the historical places of the city, which is something I can’t afford to do all the time being a college student.
