photographed building in Angeles City, The Sto. Rosario Church.
The Sto. Rosario Church (The Holy Rosary Church) was constructed by Filipino peasants from 1877 to 1896 by forced labor under the Spanish Colonial government. It also served as a military hospital by the US Army during the war. It is an iconic building in Angeles City and cliché pictures are inevitable. The challenge was how to exhibit the church in a different perspective. I walked back and forth across the church and looked for my angles. I had a couple of good shots and went back
to SM Clark for the submission of my entries (maximum of 3 images per participant).
At around 3:30 PM the ribbon cutting ceremony for the LK photo exhibit commenced, headed by the tourism city officer of Angeles City Ms. Christine Nunag and Mr. Ruston Banal, an award winning photographer and art historian from Betis, Pampanga. The exhibit was opened to the public. Late in the afternoon was the announcement of the on the spot photowalk contest winners. All of the participants' entries were already posted on the LK's exhibit area except for 5 other photographs. 4 runner ups and the best photo await to be announced.
And when they announced the 4 runner ups, the last photo that was raised was my entry... THE BEST PHOTO!!!
I went home and showed the trophy to my mother.
All went well; it was a gorgeous day.
