    Here are some of the pictures I took when my family went recently to visit relatives and friends in the Philippines. I brought along my Panasonic G1, the 14-45mm and a couple of Canon FD lenses.

    We were on our way to the airport so my wife couldn't buy anything there at the Mall of Asia. She was able to buy a lot of clothes at Trinoma at the Landmark department store instead earlier in the day.

    Fantastic shots. Now you've got me excited for my Philippines trip in January. I'll be bringing along my E-pl2 + 14-42 kit lens + 20 and 14mm pancake lenses

    That picture with the storm approaching is very very good. And the shot with the carabao/water buffalo is very typical of old postcards, makes me miss home much more. Thanks for sharing! I hope my trip on December pushes through. :smile:

    Penfan, careful with your spelling, people might think you said galling as in irritating. :D

    Awesome pictures! Reminds me that there's a whole lot more to the country than just our massive malls.
    Thanks for sharing these, kabayan.

    This one is my favorite too. This was taken using the 14-45mm kit lens and Cokin "A" Series 120 Gradual Gray G1 filter for anyone curious as to what I used to capture it.
