Sinulog has always been fast-paced. Dancers bounce and step more often then they sway. People walk from hotspot to hotspot more often then they linger. Lights pulse wildly more often than they stay on. News develops more often than it travels. In the midst of all the thrill, though, wouldn’t you want to immortalize some magical moments?
Enter the camera (and film, of course). If any event could be captured from a thousand, nay, a million possible angles, Sinulog would be it. Did you hear the story of the small boy clutching the Santo Niño as he crouched down for shade under a barricade line of policemen? His expression was captured on film. Do you know which contingents were recognized for their exquisite costumes during the previous Sinulog celebrations? You can judge them for yourselves when you see the pictures. Were you able to climb a skyscraper (or at least, a 5-floor building) in order to catch a bird’s-eye view of the festival crowd? If not, then you can see it through someone else’s wide-angle lens.
That is why winning photographs have been put up on the official Sinulog website – we want you to taste a bit of the wholeness of Sinulog. And if you feel that these photographs online are just the tip of the iceberg, a Sinulog photo exhibit at the mall will allow you to dig deeper.
And for all travelers who will be arriving in Cebu this January, be sure to check out the exhibit at the Mactan Airport before claiming your luggage!
So if you haven’t booked a place to stay yet, check our Cebu hotels directory for the complete list and be sure to book in advance for surely all the hotels will be full this January. See you in Cebu and Pit Senyor!
