Circuit Fest 2013. What else can I say? 9 amazing bands, 10 hours of high energy fun… who could ask for more? There were performances from A+ Dropouts, Megan Nicole, This Century, Downtown Fiction, Before You Exit, We Are The In Crowd, All Star Weekend, Mayday Parade, and of course, Yellowcard!
I do wish I had gotten more photos of the other performers, but I had to slowly inch my way to the front and most times the view I had were being covered by the floor monitors and those iPads.
The entire show was so much fun! I do admit that I wasn’t familiar with all of the bands but they brought so much energy, it didn’t really matter. The one thing that I didn’t enjoy was that I wish that the kids in the mosh pit knew what “mosh pit” meant. A lot of them there were screaming at each other to stop pushing. It was quite hilarious.
The band that I was waiting for the most was Yellowcard. The last time they were here was 2011, and they were amazing! I only bought cheap tickets that time and I promised that when they came back I would be at the very front. They did not disappoint. My crazy sister is an Underdog (YC Fan) through and through and we made the band a fan sign. Longineu, the drummer, asked for it right after the show and gave it to Ryan, the vocalist.
Anyway, on to the photos:
Globe Circuit was a really nice event venue, and the organizers had the traffic under control when the event was over. I didn’t really go around the grounds much, because once I left my spot up front, there was no going back. But I did see there were food trucks all over. The water was EXPENSIVE though. P50 for a 500mL/17oz bottle at first, but after a word from the organizers about PET bottles, they started selling it at P50 for a cup?! You can’t jump around with cups though, and you can’t save a bit for later. I’m lucky that the first thing I did was buy water. It’s expected though, but it doesn’t make it any less crazy. I just wish the organizers weren’t so DSLRphobic. They keep saying that a DSLR is a professional camera, but in the hands of an amateur nothing could be farther from the truth.
The Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon celebrates the feast day of Saint Isidore the Laborer (San Isidro Labrador), the patron saint of farmers.
Houses are decorated with different agricultural produce and kiping, a thin wafer made out of rice paste.

These our some of my favorite photos taken during the festival.
A little photography fun with my dog, Leona. :3
For a very important date.

Taking photos from a yacht is no easy task. Specially if you’re holding on for dear life, while begging the universe for sea legs.
