11 and 17 February 2011

Took portraits of participants coming from indigenous communities in the provinces of Davao during the opening ceremonies of the 3rd International Rondalla Festival. Doubled the shots during the picnic-by-the-beach treat courtesy of the mayor and his wife before the closing day of the plucked string music festival. Despite having a drizzly day by the beach and the sun not smiling at all, we all had fun specially the foreign participants seeing the beach and savoring fresh sea foods.
