Travel and Streets photos(Philippines Vacation trip)

The following series of photos were taken during my vacation trip to Cebu and Dumaguete City, Philippines. These are random photos i took whenever got a nice view and timing. For street photography, it is one of the most difficult to execute and to get some decent framed shots, you kinda do sometimes ala paparazzi style to take photos, because not all people liked to be photographed and few even have some violent reactions. Landscape photography is very fun to do and you have all the time to perform it. You just have to use your creativity to make a nice composition. Do enjoy and pls click the Like to FB button. Thanks.

Silliman University Church, originally built in 1899 (aka Dumaguete Presbyterian Church), i still remember those days during our Religion class where we were obligingly join the mass, just to get good grades of course. By the way, to be straightforward Presbyterian is different from a Catholic church, google it to know more.
The Portals Of Silliman University, you can see these portals at the entrance of the school from downtown area
Robinson's mall

I took this shot inside the mall, actually just after i took the shot a security guard approached me not to take photographs, i just replied ok fine, hehe.

Sinulog 2013 Cebu (One Beat. One Dance. One Vision.)

It is my first time to photoshoot the Sinulog street dance parade at Cebu City held last 20 Jan 2013, this was during my last vacation trip to Cebu City, Philippines. The shots were taken along the street of San Carlos University Cebu and few taken at the Cebu City Sports Complex where the grand showdown was held. It was an amazing experience despite the blazing heat and the heavy crowd. All photos were taken using my sony a57 camera, sony 16-50mm f2.8 SSM lens and my trusty 30+ years old lens, the minolta 70-210mm f4 a.k.a. "Beercan" lens.Enjoy the photos and feel free to leave comments below.
