SNAPSHOT | Mount Apo peak and sunset

December 19, 2008.

Before I booked for a flight, I had my reservations scheduling my flight back to Manila from Davao, because it meant harder to get a cab going home, ergo, going home late.  The 4:40 PM flight is notorious for its late departure (sometimes extending up to 7PM).  I was supposed to be booked at 6:00 PM flight, but I settled for the 4:40 PM because I wanted to catch the Indios last day of the exhibit.   When I checked in, I chose the window seat to be able to shoot the sunset while on a flight.

When I boarded, I was surprised to see an old woman sitting in my assigned seat.  But then, I thought the old woman was unfamiliar with pre-assigned seats.  I gave in so I sat next to her instead.  I still had a good view, after all. It was after one or two minutes after takeoff when I saw this spectacular view of the highest peak in the Philippines.

I think I was rewarded for being kind to the old woman who also wanted to take a look at the aerial view!

Aside from my day job, I love photography and storytelling. Going places--be it a cliche destination or the far side of the road--stoke and free my soul. I dig deeper into the people’s psyche, culture and ethnicity, and heritage. I love to observe how they thrive and build social institutions, preserve their culture and traditions.
