SWF 12 - My Town

I just want to share with you our Municipal Hall. Although I wasn't born here.. I can still say that here is where my roots are. I've been living here all my life.. like the 26 years of my life here on earth. I know there are more beautiful and interesting places here in the Philippines but I must say that our town has its own unique beauty. And yes, I will not trade it for any other town!

Here is the link to get to know more of our town (courtesy of Wikipedia) :)

I got this shot while waiting for the start of karakol (a street dancing for the purpose of praising a saint) last January 18 for the celebration of the Feast of Santo NiƱo.

Happy Skywatch Friday! :)

I would like to give a minute of prayer for those who died in the explosion yesterday in a firecracker factory at Trece Martires City. May their soul be rest in peace.

I hadn't heard of the explosion. God bless them.

I love your capture... the blue is so mysterious. The child looking at the structure adds to the drama of the scene.
