TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY: GOOD FRIDAY COMMEMORATION… In commemoration of Good Friday, I wanted to share some of my works on a photo documentary  I did in the Philippines on the Holy Friday Crucifixions, a tradition dating back hundreds of years. A special prayer for those who are suffering from any pain, physically or emotionally in this special day of Holy Friday.
