Calle Crisologo



Vigan

I once posted a picture of my brother along this historical street in the city of Vigan in Ilocos Sur, and a few people commented that I should have converted the picture in gray scale to give the picture more drama. So this week, I am sharing another picture from the area - this time converting the picture into gray scale and enhanced the brightness a little bit.

This picture excites me in the sense that my friend K and I will be visiting this place (Vigan City is my most favorite place among all the places I have visited) next week. It would be fifth time for me this year, considering that this place is almost 10 hours by bus from where I live. If only I can live there, too... =)

The conversion certainly works - it is very good, Jenn.
Enjoy your trip - ten hours, rather you than me :)

Greyscale has certainly worked, it's a beautiful scene.
You must really love the place to be prepared to spend 10 hours on the bus to get there, it's hardly a day-trip!

That is a very authentic looking photo. You can imagine all sorts of stroies behind those walls.

I have places I have visited many times this year--but they are not ten hours away.

It is a dramatic image.
