Tourists can’t go near the basin of the falls as it is dangerous. There’s a view deck for tourists and photographers alike to capture the whole image. The current is relatively strong and no one is permitted to take a bath at the banks.  Electricity for the province  and its surrounding provinces as well is sourced here.

This is the downstream where the falls discharges its furious water into the river and into the sea. There are picnic cottages where people can spend some time for a rest and snacks.

St. James, the Greater Parish Church/Dapitan Catholic Church, Philippines – Photo Tour : Tourism – Week 03, Day 08

Dapitan, 08-30-14 021 (2)

I was mesmerized by the ceiling of this church. It’s a dizzying sight just by looking up and taking photos of it. I could say that the ceiling is very different from all the other churches in the Philippines. Jose Rizal used to attend mass here every Sundays during his exile. Some words of caution: Don’t look up too long and you’ll end up sitting on the bench due to spinning surroundings.

While looking for the right spot to get the facade at the center of my photo, I was told to keep off the grass, it’s off limits.

Was it a dream?

2014 - 1 (3)
.
tonight, tomorrow, and everyday
the hour, minutes and the past seconds
i can’t hold my brains they sway
outside my thoughts running errands
.
imagining and conceiving a plan
weaving into lengths of cloth its thread
but still fibers scatter out like a fan
can’t be one disunited into shred
.
flying out of  memory and into the sky
where it is further thinned by the surging air
and after a while it is blown and left to die
forgotten in the midst of nowhere
.
again i’ll let the mind  gather some scenes
and like movies there are talking lines
the voice was bad don’t know what it means
better to sleep soundly than interpret the signs
.
