Kadayawan 2010

This post is a bit late but I really want to share some of the images I took while watching the floral parade in the recently concluded Kadayawan festival. It was a memorable day for me because an old man proved to me that there is still goodness in people. I left my car parked not knowing that the passenger windows behind the driver's seat (both windows!) were wide open. If the old man who promised to guard my car did not do his job or he himself took advantage of the situation, he would've gotten my MacBook and some camera lens which were all just lying in the car. I thanked the heavens for the old man while I had a hard time grasping the fact that I was a very blessed man.

But enough of my "emo" on Kadayawan, here are some of the images I saw on that day.

Melissa Ricks was a thing of beauty

Young men in uniform (DMMA's cadets)

After I recovered from my open-car incident, SM was the next on the agenda to take pictures of the flowers in bloom in the showcase of the Davao Orchid Society.
