Spending hours under the heat of the midday sun was worth it after I was able to take these pictures of the Dinagyang Festival 2008 held during the 26th and 27th of January. While the other photographers who had SLR cameras and their long zoom lenses were able to take their stunning photographs standing in the shade (or in one location), I had to move around a bit (because of the limitations of a point a shoot with 6X zoom) so that I’d be able to take decent shots.
The photos I’ll post here are only some of the photos I uploaded, the rest can be found in the Dinagyang 2008 photo set in my flickr account. Here are my best shots:
Thank You to PIA and Mr. Bombette G. Marin (Iloilo Provincial Tourism Officer) for giving me a media pass and to IFDI for acknowledging ExploreIloilo.com as one of the media sponsors of the Dinagyang Festival 2008.
