King of the birds

Indulge me a little bit please. I really was so taken by the kids' costumes in "Adarna at ang Alaala ng Kristal" (see yesterday's Ibong Adarna) that I just had to post another photo. The bird costumes absolutely fascinated me. In the play, among all the creatures who were asked about the Crystal Kingdom, it was only the King of the Birds, the Eagle, who had heard of it and knew where it was. Of course, the eagle had to be blue—the mascot of the Ateneo de Manila is the blue eagle.

Yes, yes, yes! An exquisite photo! As Olivier says, superb! You remind me that I ought to try to take more photos of people - the culture.

Kudos!

The story of the eagle and the costumes was fascinating to read. Nice post.

Hi, I'll be moving to the north of Belgium very soon now. The reason for doing so is my love, who originally comes from Pangasinan (she's working in Norway now). The Netherlands have got a too strict immigration policy.

I might start a "City Daily Photo" in Belgium. My love has got my Canon IXUS 70 now, but I still have my Nokia N95, which can make nice images as well. And the city I will be moving to has got very nice, and some very old buildings.
