I am a fourth year Architecture student in the University of San Carlos (USC)-Talamban campus. I have seen the photo featured last January 30 in Sun.Star Cebu newspaper. I really appreciate the photo because it captured a perfect scene — a scene in which the mother and the child reminds the people on how the Cebuanos religiously praised our very own SeÃ±or Sto. Nino during the feast day.
I am not a professional photographer but I have a great love and appreciation for photography. It has been my hobby now.
I am here to share what I have taken in the 2008 Sinulog Festival because my classmate showed me the dramatic photo of the mother carrying her son with the Sto. NiÃ±o.
I was with my friends around 6:35 p.m. when the traffic from Mango Avenue down to Fuente OsmeÃ±a was “bumper-to-bumper.” We passed by cars stranded in traffic. On our way to the Mango Avenue, I have seen a cart carrying two children. The cart was full of plastic bags with plenty of plastic containers and cans inside. I really think that those kids were one of the garbage collectors after the Sinulog.
So I stopped by and took a shot of those two children. It was a quite an unclear shot but the lights made the picture more dramatic. My photo caught the other side of the Sinulog Festival.
Thanks for the wonderful time and appreciation.
