#204 An Old Town


In Silay, Negros Occidental, we found a section of the city that transported us back in time. In spite of a light drizzle that turned into a downpour, we enjoyed walking the streets and picking-off compositions no longer found in our modern cities. The presence of old structures like these are normally a sign of decay, of being left behind by progress. But not here. The unique architecture had been preserved for future generations, even if they had to turn what was once a rich man's home into a roadside cafe. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: The muggy light from a moody sky wasn't conducive to taking colored photographs. Besides, I thought a historical place like this should be photographed with the medium of its day: in black & white pictures. Agree?)

But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), 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. Aldrin Suan at aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
