|Luneta Park's Attraction: Dancing Light|
Luneta Park, I shall return! These are the words I said to my friends when we did our Luneta and Intramuros photo walk (hehe...feeling photographer lang, please bear with me) two weekends ago. As I mentioned in my kalesa tour post, the weather and the rain conspired against us we were not able to enjoy much of our photo walk that time. Despite the rains, my friends still took some photographs but I didn't. I wouldn't risk exposing the camera I'm using just to take photographs that time, the park's just within Metro Manila and I can always come back here anytime anyway. So as promised, I returned, to once again watched this dancing light attraction. This time, I was able to take some photos without worrying of my camera getting wet.
Unlike our first time here, there were lots of spectators last Sunday night, foreign and local tourists, that is. Some are with their partners; majority in groups, with their families and friends. Some were busy taking photographs and videos, but most of them were just enjoying the show. You'll hear lots of admiration especially from children. (You could have heard the children's happy reaction through a video I'm supposed to add here but my internet connection was so slow, I wasn't able to upload the video, tried it 3x but to no avail. *sad*) Indeed, this is one good time to enjoy with your family, it's near and very accessible and most of all, it's free.
Be forewarned though, my friend noticed a group who, instead of watching the show, watched people especially those who brought gadgets with them. He even noticed them checking and watching me intently, probably because I'm holding a DSLR and a videocam that time. For everyone who would go to Luneta to watch this show, be very careful, take notice of the people around you, let them know you're aware of them so they would know you're not an easy target. And as much as possible, stay or be close to groups of people, especially to a family group, you'll be safer that way. Enjoy the show but still, be vigilant!
