Immaculate Conception Church, Oton, Iloilo


The town of Oton, Iloilo is about an hour ride from Iloilo City. It’s the first church we saw on our way to Miag-ao, Iloilo during our Bacolod-Iloilo trip a few weeks ago. This is the Immaculate Conception Church in Oton, Iloilo. You’ll be surprised on how many churches in Negros and Iloilo are dedicated to the Immaculate Conception.

Unfortunately, the church was close when we visited it so we didn’t get the chance to look at the interior.

Top 30 for Cosplay


I was very happy to see my entry be included in the Top 30 for the On-The-Spot (OTS) photo contest held during the 26th Anniversary of the FPPF. One of the themes was Cosplay (short for Costume Play).

It was a shock and privilege for me since there are probably more than 200 entries to this OTS. My gratitude to the judges of the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) for boosting my ego.
