Talata at Amos Cafe – Nov. 23, 2012

Music, Photography By December 4, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , 3 Comments

A number of firsts for me. It was my first time to shoot at Amos Cafe. No, it’s not my first time at Amos, having been there a number of times before, though I preferred to just sit outside and chat with friends and not shoot anything. It was also my first time to use a flash. I have never used a flash, ever. I used to be disinterested, but after a while, that little bug that makes you want to learn something new and get out of your comfort zone gets to you and you find yourself getting things you thought you would not ever want nor get.

I like Amos Cafe. I like the fact that it’s on the second floor, and has a balcony. It reminds me of Wharf Galley in Avenue Square. It’s really narrow though so I get self-conscious when I’m here. I feel like I run into everyone. Though I’m not averse to socializing, most people I meet would say I am aloof. I like that Amos Cafe is dark. I like dark places. Its good for hiding. I like that you can watch the gig outside through the glass walls. I like the fact that food and drinks are cheap though I dislike the fact that the menu is limited.

Since it was my first time to shoot at Amos. It took quite a while to get the right shots. Since I was also learning how to use my new flash, some shots had to suffer. Actually, a lot of shots. So forgive me for all these. I need more practice. Until I get the hang of this, you guys will just have to bear with me and my shortcomings.

The first band I shoot always suffer. So my apologies to Talata. Bawi na lang next time. Wink. (P.S. Happy birthday Mama Reyg.)

Matilda Returns to 70’s Bistro – Nov. 14, 2012

Matilda seldom does gigs these days that when they do have one, I make it a point to go. I once asked Meh if Matilda has disbanded and she responded with: “No, everyone just thinks so and we don’t get get invites to play but we are very much alive!” or something to that effect. So I get excited every time they have a gig.

Meryl Antonio-Reyes and I go as far along as I do with Dan Ramon Geromo of The Discoball, back to our college days when we were all sophomores at U.P. Diliman and we bonded through The U.P. Repertory Company. I was really happy to come and watch them play again.
