Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
At a time when taking a day off from my toxic work is a rarity, I was able to join my photobuddies armed with superkitlens-powered DSLR cameras, to take a breather on a Monday morning and head straight to the Orchidarium at the Quezon City hall complex.
With my 300D in tow and a "service pistol" in the guise of a Canon Ixus 30, we took shots of various flowers, cacti, pets oblivious of the traffic and smog passing us by at a dizzying pace.
some of my shots below:
the mute parrot
desert in the tropical philippines
the cactus flower cactus flower again
now for a test: can you guys guess which camera I used for each picture without looking at the EXIF data? I have my Canon EOS 300D with superkitlens vs the Canon Ixus 30 (point-and-shoot). Do let me know for those with a discerning eye :P
By the way, as always the case, no tricks here, I only used Photoshop to put watermarks,contrast, saturation, and resizing only.:)
ei sidney, it's really hard to tell when you see just a small picture :)
all of them are from Canon as both my cams are. You're correct with #1 since I presume you're referring to the 300D with superkitlens. Buying a macro lens and other expensve stuff is out of my mind right now. Have so many things to prioritize :(
