It’s that time of the year once again when international humanitarian photographer, Karl Grobl, brings in a new batch of photo enthusiast to tour around the Philippines for 2 weeks. I’m grateful that I’m part of this tour again as meeting people from different places is very interesting. Karl modified this year’s tour and went from Vigan to Sagada then Baguio which is opposite of last year’s. Downpour is the story of our 2 days in Ilocos. It would seem that every time were out on the streets, a squall would greet us, but that didn’t stop us from shooting.

On photo tours like this, I usually take a back seat and watch. I didn’t even bring my tripod this time around as I remember I never used it once last year. The participant’s shoot is more important, but if I do find a chance (means when all of them are in the shooting zone), I do take a few shots too. Sharing here some from rainy Vigan shoots.
