[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was All Saint's Day yesterday so my sister and I went to the cemetery to pay our respects. On a little side note, actually the Filipino tradition of going to the cemetery on November 1 is a misnomer because it's All Saint's Day. If we follow the book, we're supposed to visit on November 2, All Soul's Day. But still we had to go, and early too, so we'd be well ahead of the people.

This is taken in La Loma Cemetery, or in Pinoy/Spanish terms 'Campo de los Santos La Loma'. This is actually an old mausoleum which appears to have been quite unmaintained for a few decades now, losing the original spire at the top. The walls appears to be showing effects of slight acid rain.

I used a manual focus 50mm here, set at 8.0. Used a fast shutter of around 1/1000, and PP'd the blues and contrast in cameraRAW.
