Paint It Black!

Dingyang comes again to Iloilo, Panay's biggest festival of the year. This is the only part of the year where everything in the city shuts down ( Even us! thank God for that small blessing... ) prepares for the grandest event the city has to offer. Twenty tribes, 5 judging stations, 25 judges, 5 kilometers to march and more than hundred thousand in the stands watching and cheering their favorites. I'll let the pictures ( and captions ) speak for themselves.

Form Up!

Hail, Hail!

Watch out!

Standing Proud

Yes, we like our headdresses!

Come fly with me

Arms up!

Shiny Stuff

Flow like the breeze


Look into my eyes

Two shields are better than one

Multicolored Madness

Where we supposed to go?

The young grasshopper

Wind Walkers

Viva Sto. Nino!

Oh, if anyone is interested in coming over here to experience Dinagyang ( and the food! the seafood in the Philippines! Talaba for only p50 per bucket! w00t! ) just ring me up and I'll give you a grand tour, hehehe. I'll post a movie next time since the internet here in Iloilo has bogged down and there's just an intermittant signal every couple of hours or so. Sucks, but what can I do? Hay....

Equipment: Canon S3 IS camera, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, Mac Intel Dual Laptop

Frame of Mind: Dizzy

Song of the Day: Kundiman by Silent Sanctuary

Book of the Week: The Ice Dragon by George R. R. Martin

Want or Need: A new internet service provider!
