Photos Taken By Totomai Martinez
Sunrise at Panglao Beach
("Philippines has 7,107 islands and there are lots of beaches. This is taken in Panglao Beach, Bohol.
I woke around 5 am, and waited for the sunrise. I was just starting in photography when I took this photo.")
|Chocolate Hills in Bohol|
("One of the popular tourist destinations in the Philippines is the Chocolate Hills. It seems unreal but really it’s true.
It was affected recently by an earthquake but I think it’s once again open for tourists viewing.")
Masskara Festival in Bacolod City
("This is my hometown and our city is known as the City of Smiles.
Masskara Festival was founded when our city was struck with calamities and tragedies.
We decided to cover our woes and pains with smiling masks.")
The Ruins in Bacolod City
("Known as Taj Mahal in the Philippines. This is an old mansion located in one of the sugarcane
plantations. It has a rich story behind it and it’s about unconditional love too.")
Glad to see each of you here this week for Poetry Pantry. It is always enjoyable for me to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same.
This week I am sharing photos taken by Totomai Martinez. (I will resume with Bjorn's series next week.) Totomai came from the Philippines but has been working in Japan for almost 8 years now.
In his introduction to his photos, he said that the Philippines has 3 major geographical divisions, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. However, all of the photos shared today are from Visayas as he was born there. In a few weeks I will be sharing his photos from Japan. Thank you, Totomai!
