Under the Blazing Summer Sun : The 73rd Araw ng Dabaw

Well, two weeks has passed since the 73rd Araw ng Dabaw, but its only now that I have time to post some of the pictures I took during the events.

I went out on the streets to shoot the dance competition and the grand parade. I endured the blistering heat of the midday sun just to shoot. It was my first time watching the Araw ng Dabaw in a very long time. I remember the days when I watched the event with my mom and siblings; that was ages ago. Shooting at the event brings back memories of my childhood.

Anyhow, I managed to get a few good shots of the parade and dance competition. Sadly, the event wasn’t as colorful as I was expecting. It’s all for experience sake.

This is my favorite photo from the whole set:

A Walk in the Park

On a bright Saturday afternoon, after visiting my dentist, I decided to take a walk in the nearby People's Park. All I had with me was my camera with its battery nearly empty; but that didn't stop me from taking pictures. I never expected that I'd find a whole lot of people inside because of the heat from the mid-day sun. That day made me wish I had a very long telephoto lens with me so I could sneak up on those who were sitting in the shade. Here's a pair of photos from my expedition inside People's Park.

H-H-W-W! :)
