Kulay lokal

Even with the overcast skies, the aliwan festival colors shone thru the drabness of the fading afternoon light. Truly, a reflection of our vibrant and colorful fiestas. A quick snap from last Saturday's event at the assembly along Roxas Boulevard.

looking at this photo, it shows how intricate their costumes are. they really gave their best (performance, costumes etc) for this. kudos to all the contingents!

onga dom. imagine that pina-like fiber trimmed with banig and festooned with flowers. goes to show how creative pinoys are. i heard in the heat of the competition, may mga nagkainitan ng ulo. but anyway, the show went on, rains and all. nakita ko yung post mo nung gabi. grabe, ang sipag mo man!

I like how that girl holds the flower in her hands. Buti me nakunan ka pa dun abgo bumuhus yung ulan.

hi jan! ok na rin na-cancel yung trip nyo. in God's time, you'll be able to go explore pinatubo. my mountaineering group had a tragic experience sa pinatubo about 2 years ago when one of our groupmates perished in a flash flood sa apo mallari. that taught us a painful lesson to respect the mountain and the weather.

bai ferdz, would you believe i took this shot right after the rain before i proceeded to robinsons :-) john chua told me kasi it would be nice to snap some after the rain to reflect the drabness that follows the squall. my intention was to let the vibrant colors shine thru that drabness. but apart from this and the parasol shots, wala na akong ibang snaps.
