Holy Week 2008

It was a little reminiscent of a trip I had a month ago, I was on the car with some friends -- Chrie, Fi, Francis and Giles -- driving south at 3am in the morning to meet up with Rollie and his family.

The only difference was that the metro was more like of a ghost town than an urban jungle. Well, what would you expect, it was Good Friday.

Imagine this, the metro was so empty that our drive from Bicutan exit up until the Petron Gasoline station in SLEX only took 10 minutes!! I initially estimated 30, but according to the display in Francis' car, we covered that much in 10 minutes.

We arrived in Anilao a little past 6. And the first thing we did was grab a pillow and head off to bed to catch up on some precious sleeping time -- most, if not all of us, haven't slept yet.

As soon as we woke up, we started doing our "rounds", photo op rounds on our side of the beach and retreated back to bed to get some more sleep.

the resort we were staying on

At Nightfall, things started picking up. People started acting weird from the super charge they got from their (almost) all day sleep.

After the sun has completely set, you would see the little lights from a distance. Clustered and distant lights would inspire one thing -- long exposure shots..

It pretty got creepy when we started capturing ghosts on film sensors..

Chrie apparently felt the ghost and freaked out

The ghost didn't really creep us out. Hence, we continued enjoying the night more with our camera, the darkness and the LED light in our hands. And what did we get? Light paintings..
