Photo Trick Shots at Cagsawa Ruins, Albay, Philippines

Asia Photo Essays

Albay is just 2 hours away from my hometown. I brought Handel here to see the famous almost-perfect cone of the Mayon Volcano. We also went to the Cagsawa Ruins. The structure that you can see is only a part of a big church and where the bell was located. Several decades ago, Mayon volcano erupted and covered the church. It was said that the people went to the church thinking that it was the safest place during the eruption. But the church was buried under the lava together with the people.

Nowadays, there are locals who will take your photos or trick shots so they can earn some money. However, you can always do it on your own.

  1. I rather like Maldives .But my favourite in Asia would be Kashmir .It’s gorgeous and the mountains are so romantic that you won’t want to leave

  2. This is so witty and creative. 🙂 I have done similar shots when I was in Bantay Bells Church in Ilocos Sur. It is very funny to use your distance and play with you photos.
