One the Road to Cadiz City

Leave a comment

We only pass a road in one way only once.

All other circumstances would change… Too often, I find myself thinking, that I do want to photograph everything, because they are never going to happen again. I’m going to be a different person next time, and I will not be able to experience things the same way again.

In the long bus rides, it is inevitable to find interesting things to photograph along the way. This I find advantageous to my dislike for inactivity, and thus, I take full advantage of it. 🙂

This photo set is made up of scenes on the way from Dumaguete City to Cadiz City.

I always prefer the window seat, as it gives me the perfect vantage point to take my pictures. The views were mostly of the countryside, but the quaint little barrios and towns offered a good view of the bucolic colors of the place.

I was half-preoccupied with the movie, “Dark Shadows” which starred Eva Green and Johnny Depp (as a [dorky] vampire. 🙂 This particular scene was when she gave him her heart…literally. (Before this, the main entertainment was 80’s songs, which weren’t so bad too.)

A quiet roadside cemetery (although I am unable to recall which part of the trip this was.) I remember, while on a road trip with my family, with my father on the wheel, I had to ask him to stop for a bit because I had to wander off and photograph a really picturesque cemetery. (He is pretty used to it, though).

This is my attempt at a style (in street photography) of using “filters” to make a picture appear more interesting. The lady was seeing her husband off, and this was the view of her waiting at the bus stop through a “filter” of an unwashed bus window. hehe. 🙂

I thought the boy was pretty cheeky. He either was a natural-born climber to get so high up on the marker…or his dad put him on time-out. 🙂 Who knows?
