This was supposed to be entered last January 11 of this year but since I had my interview then, I just drafted it first.
Actually, my wife was VERY hesitant to let me go to the event since throngs of people attend the event as their annual "panata" but I insisted and besides, I know my limit and where to shoot.
I meet up with my good friend Alex at almost 11:00am and the Image of the Black Nazareth was still somewhere within the Manila Hotel area. We positioned ourselves on top of the waiting shed to have a better view of the event. Then throngs of people gather up as the image of the Black Nazareth approaches our eyesight. We got a lot of pictures not just the image but also the people and the emotions as well. We spent at least 4 hours to be able to capture the stretch from Padre Burgos to Lawton. It was really exhausting and draining as well but it was all worth it.
Here are a few pictures I got during the event with a disability of AF functions of my camera (I shot the event in Manual Focus).
