Visual Diary: January


A color-blocking savvy door caught my eye while having a short round-up out-of-town trip. Yes I wish I had this fabulous door somewhere near me.


These carvings remind me of my favourite prints: Damask prints. I saw these on the way in a newly constructed church, out of town, here in the Philippines.

 One of my favorite photos from my Instagram feed: Hand painted sugar cookies of Bethany Wiseman (@batchpleasecookies). Who wouldn’t be attracted to these mosaic tiles on famous paintings? Its definitely a combination of my love of food and art.

Herakut installation at the Fort, Fully Booked that I have always forgotten to take a picture of.



A stream of lights that I surprisingly found on my phone while staring at the sky.



Quick outfit plug-in during a day off from academics, also attending overdue workshops.

 I’m trying out this format of post, hoping that I can explore my boundaries in phone photography. A series? A project? A collaboration? Why not. If you have anything in mind, comment down below.

I hope everyone will have a great, unstoppable momentum of inspirational flow.

S.S.,signing out.
