Sinulog at the Basilica del Santo Niño

Around this time last year, I posted some Sinulog photos from way back 2008. Now here’s the rest of them, taken a day before at the Basilica del Santo Niño.

Though I grew up in Cebu until I was five, I could hardly remember if I got to watch it before. So when my mom and dad offered me to join their almost–annual trip for Sinulog, I gladly obliged.

I remember losing my phone (and very my old globe number/SIM); I was distraught about it that I was so hesitant about getting a new number or a postpaid subscription. Globe gladly gave me a custom number I want though, but now I realize I hardly use all of my G–Flex consumable credits.

I would’ve wanted to take the 5Dmk2 for this year’s Sinulog if not for the busy sked. On second thought, it’s rather scary if tragedy decides to strikes twice with me holding a few–days–old camera. Yikes.

Most of these photos were taken in color with my 400D, and they would’ve looked nice, though I think Sinulog in color is too common that I’d rather see them differently. But instead of giving them the Photoshop treatment, I chose Picasa’s basic editing and B&W conversion. I think they turned out well.

I’ve removed the embedded gallery within this post but it’s now available as Sinulog at the Basilica del Santo Niño in the photosets section.

  1. ilang dekada kaya ng sinulog ang mako-cover nung sinulog photos mo ng 2008? hehehe.. :D

    i wouldn’t have agree na gawin mong black and white ang festival photos (‘coz they’re usually really colorful and full of life) but i will accept your reason na “usual” na ang colored Sinulog photos. :) And with that I say…Picasa FTW! :D

    • Up to this year na lang yung 2008 Sinulog photos ko ga, so next year kung mag-post man ako ng Sinulog dapat bagong set of photos—tignan natin ang kayang gawin ng 5Dmk2. :)
