Magic Hour in San Julian, Eastern Samar

Here are the shots that I took during the “golden hour” between 6am – 6:45am at Jose Rizal St. in San Julian, Eastern Samar…moments captured before leaving the town that was just starting to wake up. I just used my video cam’s photo shot option with 3.1 megapixels.







In the foreground is the house of my Deaf friend, Ma. Gilda Quintua who brought me to San Julian to show "Silent Odyssey," my film on Deaf Filipinos where she is featured as one of the accomplished Deaf in the country

The photo below of Antonio Pomarca, President of San Julian Differently-Abled Persons Association was shot before the film screenings the day before the shots above were taken.

  8. I missed & love this place because I was born here, & I am thinking of solutions of poverty, typhoon, corruption, every typhoon occurred houses are damage people try to start again, this place needs help to learn to use of Modern technology so that when typhoon occurred again just nothing happen. Their are lots of places & countries all over the world which often visited by typhoon or cyclone but they understood to deal of calamities. San Julian or entire Samar should used Agriculture that is suitable for typhoon. I wish the educated people in this place will helps together.
