French Horn

There was a procession through the streets of our suburb, known as a barangay, last Wednesday. And what is a parade without a marching band as pictured here. It is Easter here in the Philippines, better known locally as Holy Week, where Folk Art and celebration of the death and reserrection of Jesus is the order of the day. A whole heap more pics of the lead up to this event along with examples of the art created by the residents of the barangay can be seen at pissedpoet pics sister site http://auspat.blogspot.com
