I really liked the way this photo turned out. On our way home from our mini-vacation, we stopped by the sleepy town of Ibaan in the Batangas province to visit their church. We got there around 3pm; outside, a group of people were doing the Via Crucis, while inside, small families gathered to pray. From the looks of it, a Mass was probably going to start in a few minutes-- a lot of the people inside were all properly dressed and some were praying the rosary. We spent a total of fifteen minutes there, as we had to be on our way; Holy Week traffic in the Philippines can literally be a Calvary of a time. Curiously, the images weren't veiled, despite it already being Palm Sunday. I was told by my father that the custom there was to cover the images after the Palm Sunday Mass-- but which, he didn't know. Despite the 'abuse', I was thankful to have been able to see the retablo in all its glory.
