LOCATION: Paoay, Ilocos Norte Philippines
The Paoay Church looks exactly as it is seen in the thousands of pictures in the net, magazines, posters, postcards. Thus, it became a challenge for me to shoot. Every angle, nook and cranny of this structure must have been captured already. What else will I shoot.
The view from afar is exactly the same view that we see in pictures. And when I entered the church, there was a different feel. It was dark and “uneventful”. No breathtaking ceilings nor pillars, not even the altar. No Sistine chapel art or interiors here. I am not complaining though. I still enjoyed taking pictures of it.
And the facade lived up to its reputation. It was beautiful. And tourists and travelers were enjoying taking photos especially the jump shots! I enjoyed watching them (especially my siblings). I think I also had one jump shot photo here…
