    Ayala Avenue Corner Makati Avenue at Night

    I was thinking of taking pictures around Makati with a DSLR in tow but I know fully well that overzealous security guards with their "old school" security mindset will prohibit me from doing what I like best.

    I might as well try to be friends with our building administrator so that I can apply for a permit to shoot at the rooftop :)

    Wish me luck!

    You just gotta love Makati for the night scene!

    the night view is definitely the best. =)

    ang ganda talaga ng makati lalo na sa gabi. bakit kasi pinagbabawal ang paggamit ng d/slr? kaya tuloy parang mas gusto ko pa mamasyal sa abroad kaysa sa pinas dahil dami bawal.

    Hi tutubi,
    It's good to know you also posted at MIP for quite sometime. The server is already okay so you can visit there again. You need to re-register...

    What is more funny in Makati or in any other place thus far (including Marikina Riverbank and Araneta Center) that prohibits taking photos is that they don't allow the use of SLR which security guards most of the time refer to as "big camera" while users of compact cameras are free doing the shooting spree...
    That's the reason I have my 2.0 megapixel mobile phone camera, Hahaha...

    You manage to capture the glorious Makati in its best. This is what I wanted to capture if I get the chance...

    The ban on SLR cameras sounds lame. what's the justification for it?

    I agree with the others!
    Great view of Makati by night!
    I mis something like that in my picture collection!

    Dapat pala bumisita ako minsan sa office mo para makakuha akon g ganyan. Judging from your vantage point. Either asa Equitable building ka lapit sa Paseo Center kung di ako nagkakamali.

    Pwede pa rin kumuha sa DSLR wag ka lng pahuli. Hehe

    Nice view..

    I wonder, with these glimmering lights, can you still see the stars at night in Makati?
