12 Favorite Photos of 2012

MANILA, Philippines  As a year-ender of sorts, allow me to share with you 12 of my favorite photos from 2012. 

Here they are, in no particular order:

Just because the weather was extra nice when we landed in Puerto Princesa. I love the drama of the plane about to take off and the airport personnel walking against the light.
Puerto Princesa, Palawan

The mirrored wall outside the Swarovsky shop caught my eye.
It was timely that a woman walked by.
Shinjuku, Tokyo

I ended up with a bloody scratch on my back after this! 
The rock formation was extra low so I literally squeezed myself out. It was worth it, though.
Minalajos Island, Caramoan

Most often than not, Filipino kids are always eager to have their pictures taken.
This was the first of many.
Moalboal, Cebu

Just because I didn't expect to see this under the bridge. 
Harajuku, Tokyo

That's not sperm, mind you. It's actually a close-up of my towel.
One of the most random shots on the beach turned out to be a favorite!
Moalboal, Cebu

To describe what I felt while crossing the famous street in Shibuya, this would be it. 
Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo

We had the beach all to ourselves. The sunset that day was amazing. 
Santiago White Beach, Cebu

I attended their noontime prayer session. If I were that guy, I'd be yawning, too!
Cao Dai Temple, Ho Chi Minh City

Somehow, I was so drawn to that piece of art. It was disturbingly beautiful.
I had to edited this slightly to bring out more of the darkness that I wanted. 
BenCab Museum, Baguio

I think this is when my friend Tina posted a shout-out on Facebook: "This is it!!!"
San Agustin Church, Manila

Playing with the waves.
Esperanza Beach, Cebu

I hope you like them as much as I do!

PS. I didn't bother giving them creative titles as I've never been good at it.
