In the spirit of the traditional Visita Iglesia, here are some photos I took of Manila Cathedral in October last year (2008) while waiting for some papers to clear at the Bureau of Immigration.
Although my camera was only a point and shoot Canon Ixus 90IS, I was trying to learn how to play with light at different settings. When I have enough experience and money, or when the recession is over, maybe I'll get a better camera! Here are some of my favorite shots:
I was sitting in front of the church, then I looked up to see the noontime sun. It was really hot that day so I went under an Ipil tree for shade and got the above shot...
I loved how the light from the stained glass was reflected on the newly polished floor. :D
And it being really bright outside, I got good even lighting on the stained glass window.
This sculpture was on the door of the cathedral. I actually never noticed it before. I liked the way the side lighting gave it more depth.
