The moment I saw the notice in my inbox, I knew I had to be there. Sadly, as much as I wanted to be at the Ayala Museum at 9.30am, I wasn't. But I did arrive just in time, a few minutes before the talk started. Shame, because he took photos of the attendees who were there early.
It's fun hearing the stories behind the photos along with a few other things photography enthusiasts can certainly learn from. By the end of the talk, I was more than inspired to get shooting already.
While waiting for the exhibit (which was hours later), I dove into my copy of The Architecture of Happiness for lunch. I also dove into my pasta and cake. Which was too sweet! And I have a sweet tooth. But pasta and cake was good.
After a long, semi-aimless stroll, I made my way to the museum on time. Pretty soon people started coming in, and I got to have a little chat with the man himself! I admit it was pretty awkward admitting I wasn't early for the talk, but it was so cool to talk to him about his photos, and The Kills! I loved them when I saw them perform on Live from Abbey Road, but that's another story.

The Ayala Museum was filled with enthusiasts, bloggers, stylists, and the beautiful and stylish. You can see people taking outfit photos of each outher during the exhibit. Just like me and my friends were, but with a bit of a twist.
