KC's Despedida de Soltera
More fireworks display have come and gone since the Centennial celebration in 1998 and by now were beginning to look alike. Once in a while a different venue affords one a different perspective. At a friend's despedida de soltera (lit: goodbye as a single person) before I officiated her wedding a couple of days later, a nearby mall had a fireworks display which I managed to catch. My family (Liza, Erika and James) were on a roof garden looking down at SM Megamall (Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong, Philippines) when it happened; using table napkins as an improvised bean bag (I did not have a tripod with me), I propped my MZ-5n with the SMCP A 35-70/4 (same lens I used back in 1998) on the porch and shot with B winging the exposure.
