nice collections bro! its good to know, you have somebody to ask to when it comes to stuffs like this...
THanks eatstuff :)
I think you're on a whole different level than a lot other people.
Thanks jennifurrd, glad you enjoyed it
Your photos have kept me glued to the computer screen for hours.
No you cant gids. Its all in the eye. Thanks
Great pics! I'm amazed how effectively you utilize your cam...to the hilt...! Can you substitute exposure, constant use and wild experimentation with a formal photography study?
I love your pictures, very colorfull but I can not see the text. May be you should change it to a brighter color. Just a suggestion, makes it a little easy for oldees to see.
Thanks adelina, flower festival is usually february to march but the parades are held 2nd or 3rd week. It all depends, this year they had some problems. You should catch it some time its something really different.
Wow nice pictures! I always want to see this kind of parade but always miss whenever I go visit. Last time I went to Baguio was May of 2004. When is the date for flower parade?
Sehr nützlich, informativ und anschaulich!
Breath taking pictures you have there Russel, That could even be compared to Blue Mountain in Australia! awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Congratulations on your new art of photography. Most of all congratulations on your marriage you look very happy and I wish you and your wife the best of luck. Wow things change your married who would've thought.
Take care hope to talk to you someday.
no special filters, i have a lensbaby for some effects. That BandW thing is easy
hey mayng... what camera do you use? do you use any special filters/lenses to do the effects? how you do that B/W pic with one object in color? tips! tips!
Thanks Armel, I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

That jabbadababy pic is the best! She looks so wise beyond her years... err.. months, with that contemplative look on her face, and her arm holding onto the palanggana for support.
(you should not have mentioned that... haha)
Thanks for the compliment Grace M. Im glad you didn't say HELLA BREATHTAKING. I would have gone bananas
Yo Rubbahumpy! It's been about 10 years since I met you! Just want to say HI, and great to GOOGLE you up and see all the beautiful pictures you took! Your photos scream GENIUS, and many are freakin breathtaking! (Belated congrats on your adorable daughter too!)
Thanks Vooodz. Glad to know your interested. My crash course fee is a 6 pack of beer. Everyone learns eventually :)

I'm Bruce from Korea.
Nice site... ganda ng mga pictures
Hi manong great site love ut work can u b photographer @ my kasal lol tell ya when after i get back home to bagui0 hehehe
Thanks Anne. I myself never took any classes. Just alot of reading on the internet and I know one person who has been guiding me. My friend advised me to keep shooting shooting and have fun doing it, thats probably most important. If you want to get into the technical aspects of photography then email me I'll be more than happy to start you off. Russel_Ariola@yahoo.com
Hello, Russell. I, too, am a Baguio native who is now based in San Diego, California. I LOVE the pictures you took. I have a more than mild interest in photography but don't know how to start learning more about this art. Heck, I don't even know if I have the skills...but I'm willing to learn. Any suggestions for a beginner? Take classes perhaps? Your input would be appreciated. Thanks!
Russel, you got a nice gallery here!!
thank you for visiting at my pbase site
however i have migrated to another home.
hope you can drop by some time.

Well I used my Canon 300d and an 85mm prime lens. Cameras are just a tool. If your passionate enough you can use a 50 year old camera and still take great pictures. Good luck to you bongeez
russel, i just want to know what camera you use to take the great pictures of panagbenga 2006. I'm in the hunt for a good camera. Tnx

I am also a native of Baguio and I am currently living in Northern Virginia (US) and I haven't seen my hometown in over 30 years. I really like the pics of yesterday (60's) and today. I remember the city as it was back in the 60's and early 70's. The current pics blew me away, the town has just boomed. I don't know if that's bad or good but like any vibrant city it has to grow.
FYI, I am related to the DeGuia's, Florendo's and Bugayong's who are still residents.
Looking forward to more pics.
Thanks Alan. I hope I wouldn't break as much cameras as you though :) this is definitely an expensive hobby. We are natives of this city and we share a fondness for it. I'm gladd you enjoyed it.
hey russel, took me sometime to look up fron the internet photos of the panagbenga 2006, only to find crap shots of it until i stumbled into your website.
man, may i say you have got the eyes in your lenses! im very passionate about photography (although this is not my professional field), i have broken so many cameras since i learned how to hold, point and shoot them, lol.
anyhoots, lovely pictures of the flower festival. it surely has brought me closer to home (baguio) once more.
last time i went to the philippines, i never had the chance to roam around the city. through your eyes i can see such difference it has evolved into - very welcoming into the future.
well done to you mate!
cool pics, thankx for sharing....
excellent photos. i enjoyed looking at them.
Thanks Willy! appreciate the comment.
Great work, Russel! I'm a regular visitor to Baguio and into urban history. Very good phot-doc of the changes in the urban landscape, especially Session Road.
Amazing photo's I love each in everyone of the snapshots, very artistic....thanks for sharing a wonderful job...
More power to you...
Thanks Pearl :)
you are a pro!!! good job!
yep rubba... it's all about name recognition, i guess ?!? lolz
Rubba... I LOVE the gallery entitled "...shhh." I Force is strong with you, young Bodega. But you are not a Jedi yet. If you only knew the power of the L lens. Search your feelings. You KNOW it be true!
Awesome pics rubbahumpy... love most of them except for the front photo captioned "...shhh" but overall very artistic. You've got the potential of being the next Tommy Hafalla. Would love to see more dimensional work though. Keep on working on your craft and embrace your talent !!!Best wishes!!! :)
Galing talaga.....makes me go back home right now !
Good to have you back in NYC. Word is bond!
Thanks for the nice comment on the Baguio Catherdral!! That was taken sometime ago with my Sony point and shoot...one of these days I'll go back there and reshoot with another camera, this time I'll make sure I have a tripod. The only thing I didn't like was having to put up with those barricades in front, they didn't have them before...(a long time ago)
Hi Russel...surprise? I am your Ate Lorie (Luring) from Canada. Happy New Year...We're just finished talking to Sandro, Tang Gusto & Auntie Beth. How's your vacation? Guess you're having so much fun out there ..siyempre naman kasi walang snow & not too cold like here di ba? O siya, give my regards to Lisa & family and everybody out there. Take care......
I like that, humps ahead pic you took, and the hydrant. so you actually putting that camera into use there, but here at NYC you take pix of pigeons and your trunk in your driveway.
I have taught you well, my Padwan learner. Good photos, seems you have fun taking them and that's what counts, brotha!
Great pics kuya... u could be a photographer... I have a business in mind... hehehe ;) I want to see more pics ok? hehe Galing tlaga!
