Welcome to Vigan City

My first shot as I walk on the streets of Vigan. This whole town is picturesque, I love the texture and the overall vibe of this place.

Bantay Bell Tower

The very first bell tower I saw that is not part of the church structure. Locals told me that it was also intended to be a watch tower so they put the bell tower away from the actual church building.

Freshly Molded

Taken from a pottery shop that has been crafting beautiful pieces for several decades now. This shop is located at Vigan, Ilocos Sur Philippines – a province known for well kept heritage since the 15th century. The constant process of molding, spinning, and waiting reminds me of what my creator is doing to make my life into something that would serve him glory…

15th Century Doors

Shot from inside a 15th century church located at one of the most preserved heritage spot in the Philippines – Vigan, Ilocos Sur, Philippines. The hallway alone gives you a creepy and historic feel – I’m glad this shot captured how I felt while I was walking inside this historic landmark.

Halo Halo De Iloko

We went to this very creative restaurant located at one of the provinces of the Philippines – San Fernando, La Union Philippines. The place is well known for its famous “Halo Halo” a Filipino iced drink made up of assorted sweet fruits, beans, ice cream, crushed ice, milk, “Leche Flan”, and Ube. This old school bike is what greets you when you find this restaurant.

Assumption

Statue of Assumption – Captured during my photo walk at Assumption College in Antipolo Philippines. Assumption College is a very old school ran by sisters which explains why most of the images I’ve taken are religious in nature. See other images during my photo walk:
