I used to be a major collector. I started out by collecting various trading cards. My biggest collection of cards would have to be from Yugioh. I liked playing the card game so I bought new cards to strengthen my deck--stuff like that.

After that, there was a time when I collected action figures. I think I accumulated something like 120 figures before I stopped. Actually, the collection wasn't intended. I played with action figures when I was a kid and I got them frequently as gifts or when I had allowance. I still have my figures--they're kept in storage in a very large box. Maybe I'll sell them one day.

There was also a time when I collected rocks and stamps but those didn't last too long. I also accumulated some pogs. Does anyone remember pogs? -- Haha, maybe not...

So what am I collecting these days? -- Well, mainly anime pictures such as wallpapers, gifs, and avatars.

Yes, I remember those. I used to collect a lot of bottle caps of Coke that says, "You win an official Coca-Cola Pog piece." Then, I traded them for pogs on retail stores that used to sell Sodas and other stuffs back in the Philippines. It's kinda simple to cheat when playing pogs. Because of that, my fellows and I treated and played the pogs like they were text cards (a Filipino Street card game that revolves on flicking 3 cards and placing bets).

I have tons of pogs left here in my house. Just recently, my brother gave them to his GF's little cousin as a birthday gift. Strange, because my brother told me that it's becoming a little popular again among the kids these days... And I thought they liked PSPs and the DS...


01. What kinds of things do you collect now?
Lenses and Cameras (Both film and digital)

02. How big has your collection grown?
Not as big as many other enthusiasts. I currently have 4 cameras, 5 lenses and 2 speedlights with other accessories.

03. How long have you been collecting?
A little over a year now.

04. What's your favorite collection?
My photography collection. If you mean my favorite in the collection, it would have to go to my old film camera, circa 1979.

05. What kinds of things did you used to collect? -- Why did you stop?
I tried to collect various other things, like mangas and art books, but I lost interest in them quite quickly.

06. Was there a time when you could have added something to you collection but you missed the chance?
Yeah. It was actually pretty good that I didn't push through with it. It was a 105mm f/1.8 prime lens and it was being sold to me for a good price... however, looking back at it, it was quite used, and it had some molds growing in it. Not too keen on spending a little more just to refurbish it.

07. What kinds of things do you wish you could collect?
Telephoto lenses. These bank on the range of $1500 to $5000. Too expensive at my current income state.

08. Is your collection valuable?
If you mean the current price each thing is worth, yes, it's rather expensive. But in terms of collectors value, my older lenses and cameras are perhaps worth much more than my more recent purchases.
