All Souls Day - Bacnotan, La Union - November 9



All across the Philippines on the first of November, members of the Catholic faith visit the graves of their deceased relatives. The tradition has a long history in the Philippines dating to near the time of the Spaniard's arrival over 500 years ago. I visited the local cemetery (called "Camposanto" in Ilocano language) here in La Union and explored around during dusk.

Writing: "Road to Nowhere" redesigned in PDF - November 7

I've been shwacking around various book-editing programs and learning about design from on line tutorials, feels like I'm back in school :) My goal is to make a collection of photo-stories from my travels, maybe assemble into a book? Thinking of using pdf as a way of saving the formatting problems of the various platforms.

From the Canopy of a Mango...on top of a Mountain... November 2

Welcome to November on the TIP! Today I got up bright and early and hiked to the top of a ridge west of Oyaoy near Quirino. To the west I could see into the South China Sea and to the east into the Cordillera. After exploring around for a good view to the west, right near the top of the ridge, I found an old Mango tree. It seemed to be planted in the perfect location to provide shade for the farmers working the surrounding rice terraces.

A Hazy Halloween Sunrise...October 31

The rice harvest is completing and the farmers are burning the rice stalks and creating large clouds of white smoke. The particulate matter in the air, although bad in almost all environmental regards, is providing some interesting photographic opportunities.

Video: "Porchfest 2012: Ithaca, New York" - October 25

Every year at the tail end of the summer season, residents in the Fall Creek district of the City of Ithaca welcome musicians to play from the various porches around the community. This was my first year to visit Porchfest. It was an amazing experience, over a hundred performances in four hours! Some major Ithaca names: Richie Stearns, Sim Redmond band, but also a few surprising additions to the music scene. Colin and I ran around on a true adventure to create this short documentary to showcase the event. If anyone knows the artists featured in this piece, please share this video with them. Enjoy!
