  1. Whew!!! Ibang level na ito, Gerry! Keep it up!

  2. Thanks, Ed! Very encouraging!

  3. Hi Gerry! The information in your weblog is very useful for us airline staff who travel frequently for vacations and discovering new places around the world. I always recommend the Philippines to my airline buddies who are always looking for out-of-the-way, off-the-beaten-path travel destinations. Keep up the great work for showcasing the natural beauty of eastern visayas!…..Raoul Vecina (AirCanada,VancouverIntlAirport)

  4. Hi Raoul! Thanks a lot for your kind comments & feedback not only here but also in the other posts of the photoblog!

  5. Hi Gerry,

    I am adding your website to my multiply’s links. I hope it’s ok and I hope to get my friends’ awareness of cool stuff that you do. More power to you!


  6. Thanks, Graes! Guess what, I sometimes crosslink my posts at multiply! Check out http://gdruiz73.multiply.com/. The full posts are placed here, though 😉

  7. Hi Gerry, I am now a fan of yours. Congratulations for a job well done. I have done photography once but since it is an expensive hobby, especially then when pictures were taken with film, I decided to do away with it. Digital cameras were only found on sci-fi movies at that time (I’m 42 now). But my love of photography has not vanished and dreamed that someday I can also own a high-end digital camera or even a modest one.

    I really appreciate how you artistically took your pictures. Even those ordinary scenes become a work of art. Since you are at it already, Gerry, I would like to suggest that you will include in your posts or topics, different buildings/churches/houses/etc. in Tacloban City or in Leyte, be it old or new/modern. I came across websites, forums, blogs from other provinces that published pictures of different buildings in their communities and it is well appreciated. Others commented (especially those living abroad) how their place of birth has grown. Others were more nostalgic.

    Anyway, Gerry, I think I have taken much of your space already. Keep up the good work and God Bless…

  8. Hi Orlom! Thank you for taking time to post your comments here. Your suggestion is well taken. In fact, I am slowly building up my inventory on pics of old churches (I have several of them already, still waiting to be posted here) but I still don’t have much on buildings. I’ll definitely take up on your suggestion. Big thanks!

  9. saw some of ur pictures..
    & i must say u have great ones gerry..^^.

  10. hello, sir gerry. i have seen your photo shots and they amaze me. are you from tacloban? are you doing wedding photos and videos? i’m planning to get married there this coming june. how much would be your professional fee? it would be an honor if you reply to my email soon. thanks.

  11. Arch. Florante, thanks for dropping a line at my photoblog.

    Allow me first to congratulate you on your decision to take the plunge! Unlike others, I believe in marriage as an institution hehe 😉

    Yes, I am from Tacloban and currently reside at calle Zaragosa at Independencia St. Yes, we do still photography wedding coverages; but, no, I no longer do video coverages (modesty aside, I was a producer/director before at ABS-CBN Channel 3 Cebu) although I can recommend some friends who specialize in this format.

    Will PM you for other details. Thanks again!

  12. hey…,.,?! nce pics, but you know what? I will really appreciate your works more if you’ll take pictures from THE GUNHUBAN FALLS of Bato, Leyte neighboring town of Matalom, Leyte. Looking forward… I’m a native here at Bato, Leyte!

  13. Hello Gerry, I love those night shot of the amphitheater. Great shots! Here I share some ideas on how to take better night scene pics. I don’t know if your Canon dSLR support double or multiple exposure or 2nd curtain. If it does, try this out. First shot should be taken before dusk with the following exposure: f/16, 1/60s, ISO 100, -1 Exposure Value. This will make the sky dark blue in tone if the sky is clear better still with a polarizer filter mounted on the lens. Take the 2nd shot when the sky is dark: f/22, 15s, ISO 100, -1 EV. Use your remote control and a sturdy tripod. You can also try other variations of the exposure value. Also try AEB in your cam.

    Wish to see you in Tacloban someday. I know where to find you, I’ve met you once thru a friend. Miss that “bangus sisig” & ‘bulalo’ at calle Z.

    Damo nga salamat & looking forward for more great pictures from Tacloban City.

    Keep it up! Well Done!!!

  16. Hi Gerry,

    This is awesome, to say the least. I hope you continue sharing your talent with your friends and the rest of the world. Please email me the specs of the lens and I’ll try to find them for you.

  18. Hi Gerry,

    I am Lorie Rufo of the Asian Development Bank. We are looking for some geothermal photos that we can use for our Sustainability Report. I wonder if you can share with us for free some of your photos on the geothermal plant in Negros. We will give you a copy of the publication once we have published it. You can reply to me through Lrufo@adb.org. Thanks!

  24. Hi! Mr. Gerry, I just want to congratulate you for your photo journalism efforts. It’s great!. At the same time for your efforts in promoting and showcasing the beauty of our region.

    I’m an architect by profession (graduated at LIT back in ’94) and you inspire me lot to get into photography by looking of your amazing compositions and post processing techniques. Seguro kilala kita kasi tumira ako dati dyan sa may Indepencia St. malapit sa Shell station dati…

    So keep it up… Ok lang ba na malaman ID mo sa FB para po mabilis yong link? At kung pwede kong i-share sayo yung mga photos ko sa probinsya ng Samar…
