Have Your Camera (and Costumes) Ready for Art in Island

By February 6, 2015 February 7th, 2015 2 Comments

I usually don’t take a lot of photos.  My Instagram account has zero content and I’m often MIA on Facebook, but visiting Art in Island changed all that.  I can’t believe I took over a hundred photos in just 3 hours (don’t worry, I won’t post all of them here)!

Art in Island is a 3D art museum in Cubao.  Allot 3 hours to go around the building and take some creative photos.  Leave your poise the moment you step in though.  The paintings are spectacular but your photos won’t look great if you’re too cute in it.  Prepare to scrunch up your face, act scared and look delighted;  it’s the perfect opportunity to bring out the actress (or actor) in you!

Just a tip, wear stocks inside or be ready to go barefoot.  Otherwise, just buy the little fuzzy socks they sell for Php 150.  Shoes aren’t allowed because it may damage the paintings.  They also have camera icons on the floor so you know the best angle for your photo.

On to my Art in Island misadventures.  There my companions and I …
