Being an expat here in Dubai for years now, there’s nothing more exciting than a vacation back to my home country the Philippines. I always look forward to this change in environment which I consider a photo holiday. Although I may have not ventured far from my home in Legazpi city next to the iconic Mayon volcano which is considered to be the volcano with the perfect cone, I was never without worthwhile photography subjects.
Being in the tropics, there’s life in every nook and cranny, I had great time shooting in macro!
Wildlife, particularly birds are everywhere! Although I found them to be more elusive or shy with humans as compared to here in Dubai, I managed to photograph some decent photos.
The flora was fantastic too! Just could not help but photograph them.
I also had a couple of people shots worth showing. Poor countryside children engrossed in playing a game using tin bottle caps, oblivious of their cluttered, chaotic environment and a man cycling to work at sunrise.
Those 30 days back home was a blast. There’s no place like home……until next time!
