I used to frequent the CCP grounds every weekend to shoot and eat years back. It has always been a favorite spot of mine for photography when I was just starting out.
I have however overgrown the spot and had not visited it for quite a while and it took an awarding session for Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk to made me come back to my once imagery playground.
The sky was cobalt blue with fluffy white clouds sitting low below the horizon; sea birds were gliding above seemingly competing with the racing regatta boats below. It was a beautiful Saturday morning and I was glad that I brought my cameras just for the occasion.Morning exercisers were all over the brick-paved grounds, gyrating to the latest pop tunes sounds emanating from loud speakers, weekend fisherfolks were right where I left them at the breakwater hoping to catch a bounty from the polluted bay, and all sorts of weekenders were at the promenade walking and sitting along with their kids and pets for a quick break from the hustle of the previous week.
The restaurants, which were starting to fill up with joggers done with their routine were still there; although some had already closed shop some new ones had already sprouted up replacing the old ones.
The Manila Bay breakwater over at the Cultural Center of the Philippines was exactly the same as I remember it from my previous years’ mini excursions. It was as if I never left.
I leisurely strolled along Manila Bay’s bank and took out my cameras; back to basics for me.
