I'M BACK WITH SUNDAY STROLLS!!! *ahem* I mean...um. Now that the Christmas break has begun for me, I have time to make Sunday Stroll articles! The thing is...there are a lot of photos! Sharing all photos and creating individual posts would take a long time to achieve, so I thought I compile some of my best pictures into one article!
Without further ado, here are the highlights from August-September 2014!
Welcome to Sunday Stroll, where I go for a walk around town spotting amazing cars and, sometimes, talking to the owners about all things considered cars.
It's not only limited to Burgos Circle, like in the previous articles. I also go to other places...that will be mentioned below.
This was the first Sunday to use the crappiest camera I've ever used, my Sony DSC-W350. Why did I use this instead of the WX80 from the previous strolls? My sister had to use it for her international school program trip in Korea, and since my parents did not want me to bring the Nikon D40X, I had to bring my used-to-be trusty Cybershot.
Why is it crappy you ask? First of all, the photo you see above looks horizontal because it is meant to be horizontal. However, my camera thinks that I'm taking the picture in portrait mode, so it automatically rotates 90 degrees.
Another odd glitch is that the camera auto-adjusts the lighting and creates a much darker, much greener exposure. Understandably, it works in low lit areas like this Murcielago shot.
However, the problem still occurs in brighter areas like this one!
At least, panoramas still work.
Problem #3 is the weirdest. For strange reasons, there is a blurry portion in the right side of every shot. Come on, it's not a motion shot! It's a blue Murcielago Liberty Walk sitting on the corner of an intersection damnit!
Another case of low lit auto-adjustment.
There are two more that only happens behind the lens. One is the most annoying bug where it switches from mode to mode. Since uses a physical scroll to change modes, it would jump from photo mode to video mode and back to photo, then jumps to panorama and back again. The other problem is that it gets stuck on focus mode, the one with the green boxes. Thanks to this, you wouldn't be able to use the settings, and that means restarting the camera. Such a hassle!
Now that you know the basics of my problem, here are some more crappy photos.
My day began with some Porsches, Maseratis and British sports cars. I was with my friends Chevy, Matthew and Jarred. However, Chevy told me there is a car group was having a meet that day, and we went there instead.
We call this group the Motul Group because the head is the local distributor for Motul. The members here brought in their best rides.
Bored with the unchanging lineup, we decided to move back to Burgos.
The circle had considerably more cars, but the one that stood out was this GC8 Impreza. Back to the group!
When we reach the place, this white E36 M3 sedan passed by. It looked so clean!
There wasn't much to picture anymore since no new cars came in, so we decided to video their departure!
That is no ordinary A45!
Then, we went back to Burgos...and nothing much came in. Moving on! It also seemed that, according to Jarred, another car group is coming to another place, the Apartment 1B restaurant.
Obviously, this is too small for your eyes. Here's the full size!
This Continental GT Speed was part of it too.
Since the W350 is so small, it fits between the rims and can capture the brake calipers!
Every first Sunday of the month, the Manila Sports Car Club (MSCC) holds a meet for members to hang out at the Manila Polo Club, close to where Global City is at. The cars they bring are beyond belief as the majority of them are classics!
There were only a few, but as the months come, there will be more...especially December's! I'll gloss over that in a later article.
As we entered Burgos, it was quite empty despite being nearing 9am. Some muscles came out like this '33 Ford!
Soon, the exotics finally came.
That's it, we got bored. We decided to move on to Apt. 1B where, surprisingly...
...a Hyundai i10 joined in! Again, here's the full size.
I'm honestly surprised that NSX owner kept the stock brakes.
So yeah, it was, in a word, a boring Sunday.
I couldn't go to the rest of the Sundays of September mainly due to studies and stuffs. Still, I came back next month, but that will be in the next part of Highlights of Sunday Stroll article!
