The Picture Will Tell You Why

When a river flows like this, it tells the bounty of its source.
While promising the abundance of its outlet;
'Tis a flowing joy in the heart of man,

To see a running water with a echoing sound;

And yes, all the birds around chirp to the melody of rushing flow;
And all the leaves of green around all glow.

Thanks to the efforts of Busuanga Island Paradise for protecting their watershed.
The photos Will Tell Why.

Tagbanwa Traditions Linger On

" Karaenan Sa Banwa"

"Kaitsura ni Mitra"

" Suring & Tablay"

Rewarding Sunrise

It was by invitation by Tagbanwa Elder that I was able to witness these traditional practices they still perform today. On the 5th of October 2010 Tagbanwas showcase their living traditional songs, dances and drum beats all night until 3:00 am. My brother John and I were there to document the occasion. Being there has always been a lifetime privilege.
