I survived! Continuation from here . The Pista ng Quiapo “Feast of the black Nazarene” today. I was with 3 other friends from pinoyphotography.org and we shoot around, go around and wait. We met at 7am then parked at Sm Manila and walked our way to Quirino Grandstand!
Its an overwhelming experience for me especially after the bell rang and they started the procession. I had goose bumps when i saw people jump, wrestle, sing, pray, cry and wave their towels for the Black Nazarene. Great great experience for me, I was hoping that I could shoot some very near shots but that was impossible.
This is an initial photo taken today at the grandstand. This Black Nazarene is a replica from owned by the devotees.
