All Souls’ Day Photos

WE went to visit my father’s and my brother’s grave at a public cemetery yesterday. Unlike last year, there were fewer people in the cemetery. I dunno why.

I took some pics but I only found these ones worth sharing:

Krus sa Comon

The Krus sa Comon is as a cross erected for those whose dead loved ones are buried in far places. In lieu of their inability to visit their graves, people light candles instead and say their prayers.

Libingan

Not very far from the Krus sa Comon, I found this grave which has the name, date of death and date of birth of the dead inscribed on the sepulchre itself instead of on a tombstone. In fairness to the family of the dead, the suman hung on half-buried cross indicates that she has not been forgotten.

The Road Less Traveled

We passed by another road. This road is actually a dried up creek and serves as a floodway when heavy rain pours. I spotted this boy and snapped a photo of him.
