It’s that time of the year when I take pictures of our family fireworks in my sister’s resthouse in Tagaytay. This has turned out to be my most favorite photoshoot of the year. I REALLY eagerly anticipate this because I love how the photos of the fireworks look like paintings on a canvass. I actually don’t want them to look fireworks-ey, but more like brush strokes or splashes of liquid color. I’m just fascinated year after year with how the trails of light end up looking captured on a photograph. That’s why I was crushed when I thought I’d miss our fireworks because I could only leave Manila at 11:30pm December 31. We got to Tagaytay at around 12:30am, but to my endless delight, our family waited for us to arrive before they did the fireworks so I could take pictures! And of course, as I took pictures, I kept humming Katy Perry’s “Firework” as the pyrotechnics exploded in orgasms of color. What a way to start the year!
I can’t wait for next year!!!
