make a wish

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


a typical scene within the vicinity of quiapo church... candle vendors. they say that if you light a candle and say a prayer, your wishes will come true. They even have a color coding for each candle, red is for love, white for peace, and so on.

It is always interesting how tradition endures the past of time no matter how modern and globalized out world can be. Nice picture.

An interesting photograph. The colors are impressive to me as I seldom take shots at night.

I got to fly last night. I mean I just dove in and flew. You can find out how on my blog post today.
