16/365: When In Iloilo (and Cebu): Capture The Colour

This is another pick (re-post) from my deactivated blog TheLuckyBlog.Info.  Again I consider this as the perfect time to import and post this article about the two grand festivals that are consecutively happening in Cebu and Iloilo. Who knows these photos may become the reason for you to suddenly fly to Cebu and Iloilo!

***
I thought it would be easy finding the photos I need for this contest since I have  tons of photos to look at. But when I started looking and choosing, my oh my! I almost gave up and scratch the idea! But for the love of Gracie who tagged me when she joined the contest hosted by travelsupermarket.com, I went ahead and took it as a challenge to come up with an idea.  Reading Joanne's post about this also inspired me to do this at least for fun!  Note that the contest is already done and winners have been drawn.

The first problem was, there were too many photos to choose from.  I always fell asleep while choosing the photos being played through the slide show.  The next problem was the concept.  I had a lot of considerations one of which is to use the colors of my race singlet from my running alter ego.   Finally, I settled on two choices.  My Cebu’s Sinulog and Iloilo’s Dinagyang Festival photos.   However,  I was torn on which festival photos should I use.  Then I thought “why not use the photos from both festivals?”  I just labeled the photos through watermark to identify from which festivals they were taken from.

So here’s my share for the “Capture the Colour” fun.  I call them my street shots taken from my ever-reliable digicam in the streets of Cebu and Iloilo during the Sinulog and Dinagyang 2012 Festivals.  Just help me out on the color for I’m a bit torn on what particular color should I tag these photos.  It would be fun to hear your comments on what color label the photos should belong.

  9. grabeh! na inspired naman akong gumamit ng digicam pix ko. nahihiya kasi ako kasi karamihan sa blogger dlsr photos talaga. kaya yun humihingi nalang ako sa mga friends ko. kakahiya kasi gamitin yung digicam photos ko.

    mas gusto ko yung kuha mo sa dinagyang festival;-)

    just me,

  10. ha ha THANKS! Hindi kasi ako fan ng dlsr because of the size and weight. I feel that it will just get in the way of my hyper-active life. Unlike with digicam, I can just hang it in my neck or stuff in my purse anytime ;) point & shoot then voila!

    What I did is to master my digicam and we became best friends to each other ;) I call myself a "professional digicam user" ha ha

    Thanks for passing by. I've been to your blog and it looks great!

    1. hahaha. kaso diko bestfriend yung kodak ko. pero chox nah. para yun sa isa kong blog. kasi di yun travel. para sa mga cofee all random things lang. pero don sa travel kogusto ko crips yung kuha para mas ma appreciate. tama ka din don sa weight ng dslr. parang magkaka scoliosis ako sa bigat

      Delete
    2. yep primarily it's the weight & the size talaga. I won't be able to fully utilize it because of my running blog. hindi ako makakatakbo ng maayos pag may nakasabit na dlsr sa batok ko lol.

      and also, I always consider myself that I'm more of a blogger and a runner, not a photographer ;)

  15. It's that time of the year again.....and I can't be in Cebu or Iloilo to witness these festivals :-(

    Thanks for sharing your pics. Nakakaengganyong manood uli, perhaps next year.

  16. one of these days mararanasan ko din yng mga festive events na yan,

  17. I was fortunate enough to have experienced such wonderful festivities in the Philippines although I would like to witness them once again. Hopefully I could take photos next time and add these wonderful celebrations to my blog. One can always blog about these every year because they always change: themes, concepts and costumes. Great share!

  18. The glitz and glamour as seen in the photos is really inviting. I could have reached Cebu last 2010 same with my plan in Iloilo but too bad emergency strikes when you have plans already. Seeing these photos makes me sigh and day dream - that one day, going there won't create any fortuitous event.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nice seeing those photos again:)

  20. Unbelievable. Hindi pa pala ako nakapagcomment noon. hahaha! Shocking talaga mga colours. Filipinos do know how to be festive, but can we challenge the gargantuan festivals and the explosion of colours of Brazil's? Beautiful, yes. But I look forward to a more gregarious fest! Anyway, hindi pa naman din ako nakakarating diyan....

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi
