When The Smoke Clears

What gives you the right to send someone a tirade of stoned messages just because you got a little dose of courage after smoking, well, you know what you smoked? Can't you do that when you're normal? What is normal to you anyway?

You say that to lose control when under the influence is nothing but a sad excuse of a coward. What do you call yourself now? Don't be a hypocrite. You know you did what you couldn't do when sober. Because you're  a coward. Because you are too afraid to say it. Because you think too much of how the other person will react. You needed a little boost from the smoke because when the smoke clears, you have an excuse.

Is it always going to be like this? Are you always going to depend on the smoke to say what you truly want? Because if that is the case, then you really are a coward.

Back Into The Groove II

Before I start yammering about nonsensical things, let me just greet my favorite kid in the world a happy birthday. Monch, you are growing up to be on fine gentleman. I wish you nothing but a bright and fulfilling future. Such a cute and lovable kid!

I was able to take photos Tina this time. I'm glad that I was able to because it's not often that I get the chance. I just love how very Filipina her beauty is. As a friend of mine said when I showed her Tina's photos, "Her beauty is the kind that makes you question the definition that the media lead you to believe."

And so it is, and so it is.

Back Into The Groove

It's been a while since I last posted anything. I made a promise to myself that I will consistently post on my blog even if I have nothing good to say or post. And yet, here I am again breaking promises to myself. Such a lie I tell myself sometimes. Anyhow, I've been fanboy stalking BJ Pascual as of late and I happen to love one of the projects he did. It's called #IVPortraits. Four artists with different specialties collaborated together and made art of each other. At least, that's what I think it was. Going back to what I was saying, the project BJ did inspired me to have a photoshoot with none other than, well, Bangs   ̶ the forever Georgina Wilson to my BJ Pascual.

Oh, and I also just turned 26. Twenty-fcukin'-six! Man, I'm getting old and I'm still unaccomplished. Pssshhh! Here's to more creative moments!

Hashtag #ROAR

It's been quite a while since Bangs and I did an impromptu photoshoot. Now that I'm back in the night shift and we have the same schedule, it's easier for us to do so. She just got a new pair of shoes from her teammate and she wanted to show it off. We didn't know what goes well with the pair of shoes she got, so I just had her wear my baseball shirt and she matched it with short shorts.

Location was a challenge since the weather has been crazy and all lately. Good thing a friend of ours invited us over to her place and we noticed this quaint little (well not-so little really) house in front of theirs. There was a tiger statue in their front lawn and all I can think of was Katy Perry's Roar, hence, the blog title.

We did the shoot early morning and every time natural light hit Bangs's legs it would just shine and shimmer minus the Twilight effect shiz.

I found myself another model. He's the little warrior who crept his way into my heart. I remember when we first met which is more than a year ago, he was cranky and had tantrums because he wasn't feeling well. Being the anti-kid person that I am, I got annoyed by him and I kept giving him a crazy fcuk quarter-aged person stare. Now, he is my favorite kid in the world.

He is Monch. I call him the little warrior because even when he is not feeling well, he would still play a lot and never lose his love for imaginary adventure. Ah, to be a kid again.

Here he is playing with his Tita Bangs. They have a love-hate relationship. Whenever he is not feeling well, he ignores Bangs and refuses to talk to her. But, when he's in the mood, he cannot get enough of his Tita Bangs.

Bangs is such a natural when it comes to kids. I, on the hand, am a different story. I have a default dislike for kids. It's like I was never a kid before. The screaming, the tantrums, the running around and the never ending questions just annoy the shiz out of me. Not for Monch though. This kid managed to let out the paternal instinct in me.

Now, if I can only be like the kid-lover that I am to Monch to every other kids out there, then maybe I would look at life differently. Maybe, just maybe.

50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

Now this is my peg when taking photos. Power lover lesbian moments like this is definitely a turn on. Don't get me wrong though, none of the muses here are lesbians. They are both in their own respective heterosexual relationships and that's that. It was awkward for them at first, but I was able get some good shots.

I've had Bangs as my muse for the past couple of posts and for this post I will introduce you all to Tina. I have to say that her beauty is very Filipina. It's just alarming though that according to her, the biggest insecurity she has is the color of her skin. Personally, I love the color of her skin. It's unpretentious and very natural.

This photo is my favorite shot of her. It's very in your fcukin' face hipster. Haha!
And of course, Bangs will always play a huge part in my shoots. Gawd, i say 'shoots' as if I'm the real fcukin' deal. That's my delusion, so you can just go suck an egg!

We were about to leave the place when we happen to pass by this wall. It's filled with jejemonic stuff (look close enough and you'll see what I mean), but it was too good of a backdrop to not take a few shots.

I'm looking forward to having more shoots with Tina. Next time we're going to take this power lover lesbians theme to a whole new level. I just hope that it won't be as awkward as this, so we can come up with better photos.
