Slow down Angels Crossing

This would win as the Most Striking Photo of my hometown among the thousands I’d browsed including my own. Not only because the timing is so perfect and the scene so extraordinary but because it tells a lot about my hometown Bulusan.

For instance, the river. Bulusan river at this point is at its finishing journey with the Pacific Ocean just two blocks away. Still clear and fit for bathing and washing laundry at the heart of the Poblacion, the river is said to be the cleanest in the province.

Another is the jeepney ride where one prefers to sit on top even if seats are still available inside. The greenest view along the way will tell you why.

And the most striking are the angels themselves. It is as if they are naturally part of the landscape.
