#183 Wooden Fishing Boats

Did I say the armada landed in the dark of the night?

Last week, I mentioned fishing boats arrived in droves at the Estancia fish port in Iloilo. It was too dark to photograph them while they unloaded their catch, but shortly after sunrise the glory of the entire armada was revealed. The wooden boats looked ancient and creaky, almost un-seaworthy. Yet when set within a quaint island harbor at dawn, it was much like a romantic storybook scene from a time long past. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Shooting into the light, most of the foreground was lost in the shadows. Shadow recovery software to the rescue!)

For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr.
