The 1st Philippine International Pyromusical 2010 Series – France

The 1st Philippine International Pyromusical 2010 Series - France

February 28, 2010
CCP Complex
Manila, Philippines

This is the 3rd week of the 1st Philippine Pyromusical Competition 2010 in Mall of Asia, and the show is becoming a weekend family affair in the Metropolis and of course a haven for photographers.

I wanted this shot different so I research and browse the internet on different fireworks display photos and the best I remember are with those water reflections, so my goal for this day is to check the entire vicinity of Manila Bay. I check google map and presto! I found the breakwater of CCP Complex. It’s a huge vacant lot at the back of ghostly haunted Manila Film Center, nearby Hotel Sofitel. We arrived at exactly 6pm and of course we asked the guards permission to park my car and do my photography project. And true indeed- the fireworks display from this site is totally awesome! A fulfilled goal for the day 🙂

The show started at 730pm, and yes we can also hear the music and the host speech from MOA so we know when to be ready. Also, I consider this shots as my breakthrough shots for Fireworks display. Enjoy Viewing!
