Our editor sent me to cover presidential
aspirant FPJ's 'victory' march' at Ayala Ave tonight. This was my first
time to be sent out to take pictures of a political rally where anything
could happen. Like a giddy little child, I went out on the streets with
my camera and braved the crowds feeling both scared and excited. I was
holding my camera overhead trying to take a good shot of the militant
group PMAP (People's Movement Against Poverty) forming their lines before
the rally amidst the rush hour traffic (first picture above) when I felt
a tap on my shoulder from behind...it certainly was a nice surprise to
see a group of photographers smiling from a pick-up truck behind me, offering
to pull me up so I could join them and get a better shot from where they
stood. I was really overwhelmed to learn they were from Associated
Press and Agence France-Presse...
these guys were my idols =) After exchanging cards, we noticed the truck
wasn't getting anywhere with the heavy traffic building up in front of
us so we all decided to get down. After that, I was lost in the crowd
and on my own again.
