Luneta Park: I Shall Return!

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!

  1. Winner! Great capture here Glen. Panalo ang kuha mo with the dancing lights (in different colors pa). I've seen the photos of other famous bloggers too with the pyromusical held there in Manila and I got the same reaction :D I'm obsesssed, Imma want to see these mahself! Sure will make me so happy (habang sumisigaw ng "woo-hoo", ano new year?) hehehe!

    1. Thank you Gracie pero di pwede compare yun photos ko dun sa fireworks photos ng mga bloggers na sinasabi mo, gaganda kaya ng pics nila, ala sa kalingkingan tong mga kuha ko. Sa photos mo pa lang sisiw na ko eh. Kung ikaw siguro kumuha dyan, mas maganda pa photos mo. :)

    2. Oi ano kaba magaling ka, magaganda kuha mo. Yang lights photography di ko na napag-aralan yan kaya wala akong ganyan. Sorry, I know lumihis ako ng topic at naikumpara ko yung about sa mga kuha ng pyromusical ng ibang bloggers, but it wasn't about the photo I was referring hehe. It was about my reaction. Yun kasing mga events ang gustong-gusto ko maexperience pagpumunta ako ng Manila. Imagine, I lived more than a year in Manila pero yang Luneta di ko man lang napasyalan. Dahil dito sa entry mo, I got reasons na to visit this place. At yung MOA? Sauce! Sa labas lang ako nakatuntong, spell T A G A B U K I D :D

    1. Hi Wild Butterfly! There is a police post in the park's vicinity, there are also roaming security guards but still, there are those lowly individuals who would take advantage of us if we're not careful. We just have to be vigilant, that's all am saying. :)

  14. Galing ng photos, I never been to luneta. I am just wondering coz I heard a news dati na they will be prohibiting visitors to take photos to give the opportunity dun sa mga photographers sa vicinity. btw-thanks sa pag follow, todo na natin sa twitter! @8teen7 hehe =)

    1. Thanks Christeen! I've never heard about the prohibitions, many people have their own cameras, local & foreign tourists alike so I guess it's not true.

      Followed you on twitter... :)
