I rarely get opportunities to take photos of people, but my recent trip to the Philippines was different. Shot at the Kaamulan Festival, Malaybalay City in the Philippines. This picture of a little girl was just one of many I was able to take while there.

“Kaamulan” is from the Binukid word “amul” which means “to gather”. It is a gathering of Bukidnon tribespeople for a purpose. It can mean a datuship ritual, a wedding ceremony, a thanksgiving festival during harvest time, a peace pact, or all of these put together.

Showcasing the unique indigenous culture of Bukidnon, the Kaamulan is held annually in the province, particularly in Malaybalay City, the provincial capital, from the second half of February to March 10, which latter date marks the anniversary of the creation of Bukidnon as a province in 1917. As an ethnic festival, the Kaamulan celebrates the customs and traditions of the seven tribal groups that originally inhabited the Bukidnon region.


The above description is from the official Bukidnon province government website.

Hey hey...good to see you back, Roger Smile

This is such a clean crisp shot of a beautiful child. You're so lucky to have been able to have captured this. I love photographing people but it's so not easy, especially when it comes to children, where it's such a no-no. Understandably so, of course.

Looking forward to more shots from your trip. Hope you don't leave it too long Smile
