Hmm.. that Shrine of Jesus looks quite classical, maybe pollution has helped it a bit look older...

Wow... it's good to look back at uuh.. Manaoag, we often go there before we go to Baguio.

Remember the 10-peso bill?
Don't you think the Barasoain Church there looks similar to the Shrine of Jesus?

Shrine of Jesus, the way, the truth and the life - 05.22.05









There was a wedding at that church and look where I found the newlyweds... photo and video taking at the esplanade after the wedding,
with matching strong winds and splashes of seawater (mind you, the waves are so strong that day that you'll get splashed with water when you're there)


The photographer was even laughing because the bride is having a really hard time climbing up the seawall

Jude D,

Those were really awesome shots. The composition was excellent in each of those photos. Gives me a tinge of nostalgia.

Here is the Basilica of St. Martin in Taal. Sorry they're kinda blurry.







A small church across where I stayed for a couple of weeks. It was during New Years Eve.

Binondo Church

Address: Paredes St. at Plaza Calderon de la Barca, Manila, Philippines

This 16th-century church still has its original stone walls. Note the replica of St. Peter's dome at the main altar and the Madonna encased in glass. The first Philippine saint, Lorenzo Ruiz, started here as an altar boy.

nice photo kryptonite! and thanks for finding time to follow the suggested format. and thanks to all for those lovely images and for keeping this thread alive.

binondo church looks old. it looks like the facade didn't change at all. i wonder which of the original ones remained. the inside is fine. i'm not very sure with the paintings on the ceiling.

will post some of my binondo church pictures later when uploading is done.

Hi, Snakepit! When I was a child, I used to see a photo of the Sts. Peter & Paul Parish Church hanged on the walls of old Makati houses. I remember seeing it in the house of the Bautistas on Mercedes/Kalayaan Street. Of course, it's in black and white. I would very much like to have one for myself for posterity.

In bringing back the said Church to its old splendor, I think the 'house' attached to it where the priest lives should be destroyed. Honestly speaking, it's really an eyesore, and shouldn't be there in the first place.

Also, there used to be a 'retablo' near the church's main entrance before. It was transferred many years ago to one of the 'kalbaryos' in the Poblacion, but I'm not really sure about this. Or you might want to check it out in the chapel of St. Therese of the Child Jesus annexed to the Church. If that retablo could be brought back to the main church, that would really be great!

Are you also going to restore the inner walls of the church? They used to show the 'lapidas' of the deads who were buried in the church's crypts.

More power, and may you be successful in this very worthy endeavor!

Snakepit, for the benefit of members of this forum, especially those who no longer live in the Philippines (yours truly included), could you please post a photo of Makati's Sts. Peter and Paul Church here? Thank you in advance, and more power!

I like the composition of this picture. Kitang-kita pa yung Eng Bee Tin Hopia. I miss those hopias lalo na fresh from the bakery. Now, I'm having cravings for some.

Notice in Kryptonite's post how the plaza in front of Binondo Church is already fixed and clean? It would be cool to have a wider view of the newly upgraded plaza. (hint hint )
