Cosplay model photoshoot

I love old houses.

They remind me of my childhood. Full of fun-filled, care-free days.

Old houses also manage to transport me back in time. They stand as mute witnesses to events and eras of long ago… “Peace Time” or even before that when the Spaniards ruled the world.

One can easily imagine the scenes then – there was still no electric power, no TV, no computers.  Now if only the walls could speak…

The Camera Club of Leyte & Samar (CCLS) had a photoshoot last Monday, August 31, 2009 and this time it was a costume play or “cosplay” model shoot with an old house for its venue.

The old, decaying ancestral house of  Campo’s family in Palo, Leyte provided an unusual setting albeit rich in photographic elements. It was an entirely new experience for most of us…

Naturally, we all had fun clicking away.

  1. Oh. Sayang waray ak pakaapi. 😀

  2. You look inspired with these pictures. I would too if I was with the party. The house is not that old as far as age go. I could go for a much older house with lots of wood carvings that old houses are known for. Nice models too. Keep up the good work. Thanks

  3. i like the picture with the potted plant. Amidst the decay, a new leaf opens. no pictures of the staircase, by any chance?

  4. hi, bebette! there is a pic of the staircase. Here >>>

  5. Do you have more of these old houses, Gerry? Mas type ko…

  6. I don’t have that much but I’ll do a mental note on it! 😉

  7. Nice photos. Beautiful models. Excellent photography. Gandang venue din talaga ang mga lumang bahay, ano?
