Because I didn’t find the time to get my media ID from a prominent blogger who offered us an ID pass, I had no choice but to battle my way down to the street dancers. Starting from the very strong crowd, photography enthusiasts, and down to a group of Caucasians (a foreign TV crew I guess) who dominated the street every time a group of dancers passes by.
At first I was kind of contented just taking photos from afar, but then I thought, I was there to document the event. It’s just unfair not take some close-up photos.
I easily made my way to a group of local photographers but there’s just something in the crowd that made them hesitate to go near towards the main attraction. And it’s no other than this group of foreign TV crew who were also covering the street parade. This group is so domineering. They have all the lenses and have this very “authoritative air” every time they take their position to get a good shot/video each time the dancers stop by to perform.
Fortunately for me, I didn’t find this group a hindrance at all. I used their domineering presence to get some good close-up photos. Every time a new group of dancers stopped by, I immediately positioned myself by their (foreign crew) side. It was a BREEZE!!! (:
Having a foreign TV crew by your side is AWESOME!!!! LOL!
I only took a few photos as the heat of the sun is something that I can’t bear.
All these photos were taken on the 21st of October. That was on Sunday. The 3rd of day of our trip there in Bacolod. More stories of our Bacolod travel in my next blog posts. For more street parade photos, you may visit my Facebook fanpage.
