I went with my Mom and Kuya to our province not so long ago to pay my tita a visit. It was a long time since the last time that I’ve been there so I was somehow excited (to take photos and all). It’s always nice to travel with your backpack, a kick-ass aviator glasses, and a camera.

Travel Photography Exhibit by Egan Jimenez.

When I got to the gallery, I saw a couple of guys drinking beers. I stopped for a while and actually asked myself if the exhibit was exclusive for close (intimate) friends of the photographer. I approached them and acted as if I just passed by. But I wasn’t able to control my mouth.

Me: Hi, I saw the invite at http://www.projectmanila.com so I decided to drop by.
Egan: Oh, hi. I’m Egan, and you are?
Me: Pao. Paolo Ruiz.
Egan: So you’re a photographer too?
Me: Uhm, not really. I am more into graphics and design.
Egan: Interesting. Come, feel free to see the photos. There’s a free icecream outside.
Me: Uy talaga? Awesome. Kuha muna ako.
