I Find It Hard To Believe You Don’t Know The Beauty That You Are.
Made by NgirNgir
Rice Terraces of Sagada, seen from Kiltepan View Point Sagada Mt. Province. I'll Be You're Mirror - The Velvet Underground I’ll be your mirror Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know I’ll be the wind, the rain and the sunset The light on your door to show that you’re home When you think the night has seen your mind That inside you’re twisted and unkind Let me stand to show that you are blind Please put down your hands cause I see you I find it hard to believe you don’t know The beauty that you are But if you don’t let me be your eyes A hand in your darkness, so you won’t be afraid When you think the night has seen your mind That inside you’re twisted and unkind Let me stand to show that you are blind Please put down your hands cause I see you I’ll be your mirror

Rice Terraces Inside the Cave

Rice Terraces Inside the Cave
Made by RoyTC
An old photo that I didn't realize was set to 'Private' until today 5-1-08... 1 year later. :D This is a cool rock formation, quite fitting for the rice terrace-abundant Cordillera region. Over the years, these rocks inside Sumaguing cave eventually became the shape of rice terraces (and perhaps even some clouds above them). Strobist info: 1 sb-24 camera right, around 1/16 power; 1 sb80dx behind the rock formation to light the back wall, around 1/16th power (optical slave) Triggered by Cactus radio trigger In hindsight, I would have turned down the main light a bit and changed the position of the background light a bit to show more of the rock wall, but we were in a rush to get out to avoid spending the night inside the cave (more details on that . I guess its better than nothing. :D

the joy it brings

the joy it brings
Made by lacesdews
The hills are alive with the sound of music With songs they have sung for a thousand years The hills fill my heart with the sound of music My heart wants to sing every song it hears My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise from the lake to the trees My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies from a church on a breeze To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over stones on its way To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray I go to the hills when my heart is lonely I know I will hear what I've heard before My heart will be blessed with the sound of music And I'll sing once more --The Sound of Music (one of my all time fave movies)

Let Me Be Your Everlasting Light

Let Me Be Your Everlasting Light
Made by Kath [is not here right now]
This photo was taken by Mr. Jonathan Cayaon of Alpha Camera Club. I cropped out my eyes because I want to look mysterious. Honestly, because I had huge eyebags. Sagada is a dream. At 4am there are literally a million stars which you can see with your naked eye. I had nothing to do that weekend, so I decided to fall in love with an entire place. ===== I am posting this here because I want to let a lot of people know that Alpha Camera Club is composed of some of the most brilliant photographers in this country. I feel extremely humbled to have been with them during their trip to Sagada.

Hanging Coffins

Hanging Coffins
Made by robbik
Hanging coffins in Echo Valley, Sagada. These coffins are carved by the elderly before they die. This ritual involves pushing the bodies into the tight spaces of the coffins, and often bones are cracked and broken as the process is completed. After the deceased are put inside these coffins they are then brought to caves high in the cliffs where they join the coffins of other ancestors. The people of Sagada have been doing this for over 2000 years.

Sumaguing Cave

Sumaguing Cave
Made by RoyTC
This is the lamp that broke down, nearly leaving us stranded in the cave. This was a problem especially since we started late and we were the last to go caving that day. Kudos to our guide for his skills in lamp dismantling and repair. We didn't have backup flashlights, so no kudos to us. :D Sumaguing Cave Sagada, Mountain Province Philippines Strobist notes: 1 SB-24 with radio trigger at camera left, zoomed to 24mm ISO 400, f/5.6 1/50

Sagada rice terraces 1

Sagada rice terraces 1
Made by Romainjohn
One thing I really loved about these terraces apart from the architecture is the tones. I guess according to how long the rice has been planted it more or less dense therefore more or less green... beautiful... I like this shot because the front ones show how a terrace is made and the far ones display their beautiful colors... Nikon D300s Nikon 50mm AF f/1.4 f/5 1/125 ISO 100 + CPL

Living cross

Living cross
Made by Romainjohn
This tomb was the very first one I saw at Sagada cemetery and as a French man I was very surprised that the cross was just leaning against the coffin stone... But even better, the flower pots had fallen over, everything looked so not taken care of and old that I still wonder how that cross could still be standing... who knows!

Made by Romainjohn
I just wanted to play with the lines of this tomb so that you could feel how heavy this cross could be. I chose this title because this christian grave is very close to Sagada's hanging coffins (coffins hung on cliff sides, old tradition). It is still very strange to me to have a cross just leaning over a tomb!!! Nikon D300S 16-85mm 16mm f/5.6 1/500 ISO 100

Banaue, The Philippines

Banaue, The Philippines
Made by The Dilly Lama
The Igorot people in Banaue seemed eager to have their photo taken. While we observed the view of the rice terraces from the look out, the three of them emerged from the literal woodworks with hats in hand, sat on the bench next to us and said 'picture'? They then returned to thier shops along side the road and awaited the next pink faced tourists.

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built. --James Allen

This is the opposite of the Sagada hanging coffins. They buried their low-status class natives here and vice versa.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives. --Henry David Thoreau

I knew the wild riders and the vacant land were about to vanish forever... and the more I considered the subject, the bigger the forever loomed. Without knowing how to do it, I began to record some facts around me, and the more I looked the more the panorama unfolded. --Frederic Remington

Becoming responsible adults is no longer a matter of whether children hang up there pajamas or put dirty towels in the hamper, but whether they care about themselves and others -- and whether they see everyday chores as related to how we treat this planet. --Eda LeShan
