Mt Pinatubo Hiking » Capturing Beauty out of Chaos: Mobile Phone Photography

This is another attempt on mobile phone photography and I think it shows through a little bit of improvement from my previous photos so I´m going to post my Pinatubo set almost entirely, and as such I would like some feedback and advise on my shots because I still find them lacking composition. Sorry about this being such a wall of greens and ashes but the background story in text is rather complex, and deserves a separate post - I’m still editing it (meaning I’m still on lazy-mode) so please bear with me.

The Burning of Philippine Presidents

I still have to ask, what is the meaning of the burning of Philippine presidents in effigies especially during state of the nation address (SONA)? But then I realized the answer to the question seems obvious. Aside from catching media’s attention it is also like the “Burning of Judas,” a ritual in many Orthodox and Catholic Christian communities, where an effigy of Judas Iscariot is burned.

In the Philippines, burning political figures in effigy usually highlights protests and rallies. These effigies are usually crude representations of a despised political figures especially the President. Burning of these effigies are usually held during State Of the Nation Address (SONA).
