I traveled all the way to Iloilo City, Philippines with my tripod and all I came back with is this lousy photo!

On my third trip to the Philippines I brought with me something that I didn’t have on my previous two trips (to be fair I was only six years old on my first trip) - a camera tripod.

I wanted to engage in some serious “fine art” photography while on this trip and that meant shooting during sunrise, sunset and dusk all requiring a tripod. So I lugged my Manfrotto tripod from San Diego, CA to Iloilo City, Philippines.

In the end my tripod spent more time in my suitcase rather than being firmly planted on the ground supporting my camera. In between family get togethers, extended meals and getting to know Mr. San Miguel (a Filipino beer) very well, I was only able to squeeze in one night of dusk photography.

I shot this on a pedestrian bridge right outside my hotel. If you blink fast enough you won’t see the telephone wires obscuring your view!

Next time the tripod stays home.

Happy Travels!
