We picked up our tour guide at Accessoria 2 along La Puesta Del Sol.

La Puesta Del Sol is what Binondo should have been if it was not destroyed by World War II.

There's a tram way in the middle of the street.

Another path way leads to Plaza Marcelino.

Along the way, you can see that some parts are still being constructed.  While we were there, some lamp posts are broken and the pool area is unfinished.

I imagine the place being stunning at night with the lamps but it will also require more photography gears to capture.

We were also able to view some of their amenities and private casas.  See Part 2.

So if you want to have Instagrammable photos, here are my photography tips.
1. Wear proper clothes. 
  • If you want to include yourself in the photo.  It is better if you could match your attire with the atmosphere.  If you're visiting on a summer day morning like we did where the sun is scorching hot, bring a hat or umbrella, shades and comfortable clothes and foot wear.
2. Take your time.
  •  Take your time to observe.  Look at the environment on a big picture aspect.  Best to take photos in landscape and panoramic mode.  If you can't take good pictures while on a tour, allocate some free time to take photos after.
3. Bring the proper gear.
  • If you're going during day time, you can be assured of good lighting as long as it's sunny.  If you're spending the night, best to bring a tripod or a good camera for night shots.
 4. Observe the source of light.
  • If you're visiting during the day time, the strong light source will also produce evident shadows so pay attention.
5. Have fun and be creative.
  •  Have fun and be creative with your shots.  There are tons of opportunity to be creative and create your unique shot that sets yours apart from the many visitors. 
There you have it!  We Travel Tripsters hope you enjoy your visit at Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar too.
