Glad you liked this headshot. Can you imagine? This was way before plastic surgery, or Photoshop! This is the REAL DEAL! Walang retoke, just real simple beauty.

More photos to come, so stay tuned!

Uy! Okay to ah! Well, i love old photos from tropicana. I even went there to take a look at the old negatives. Grabe sinlaki ng 3R and parang illustration board sa kapal. Pero kahit ganon e super linaw parin pag nadevelop. I have some originals of gloria, susan, charito and a lot more... Maybe one of thse days I'll share it. To nostalgiamanila ... keep posting. We are all delighted!
