Padyak at my Hometown

Shot this photo while visiting my hometown.

Padyak (pahd-yahk) is one of the transportation available which translates as the act of stamping one’s feet. This is basically a bicycle with a sidecar and popular in other Asian countries as Rickshaw. The majestic view of Mayon volcano is conspicuous in the background. This is the view I grew up with!

I haven’t posted in awhile because some entities stole a lot of my photos and used it to scam others. The lockdown during the pandemic didn’t stop bad elements to thrive. This made me realise that cybercrime is a real threat nowadays.

Stay safe everyone!

Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral


(Russian: Петропавловский собор) is a Russian Orthodox cathedral located inside the Peter and Paul Fortress in St. Petersburg, Russia. It is the first and oldest landmark in St. Petersburg, built between 1712 and 1733 on Hare Island along the Neva River. Both the cathedral and the fortress were originally built under Peter the Great and designed by Domenico Trezzini. The cathedral’s bell tower is the world’s tallest Orthodox bell tower. Since the belfry is not standalone, but an integral part of the main building, the cathedral is sometimes considered the highest Orthodox Church in the world.

Russian Battleship AURORA


Aurora (Russian: Авро́ра, tr. Avrora, IPA: [ɐˈvrorə]) is a 1900 Russian protected cruiser, currently preserved as a museum ship in Saint Petersburg. Aurora was one of three Pallada-class cruisers, built in Saint Petersburg for service in the Pacific. All three ships of this class served during the Russo-Japanese War. Aurora survived the Battle of Tsushima and was interned under US protection in the Philippines, and eventually returned to the Baltic Fleet.

The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood

Here’s another shot of the church from a different perspective with a more wintery view 🙂 The photo is straight out of the camera without any editing or post processing as it was saved as a jpeg. I actually forgot how to post process photos already! 🙂

Altare Della Patria (Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers) – Rome

Was scrolling through my files and saw this shot I took last year while on holiday in Rome.

The image is SOOC (straight out of camera), no editing whatsoever.

I’m still scouting for a post processing software that works well with Mac, any recommendation?
