JULY CONTEST ENTRY


Photo # 1 - FLAG

The Philippine Flag in front of our City Hall



Photo # 2 - FIRE ENGINE


These are the fire engines stationed in our subdivision.


Photo # 3 - RED, WHITE & BLUE

This was enjoyed by all the mall shoppers in Makati City-Philippines


Photo # 4 - FIREWORKS

This is what we call a "Rocket Launcher". My hubby mounted in on a ladder before he had his photo taken. Unfortunately, it was not properly mounted so it fell and started to launch its rocket in our neighbor's garage which later on caught fire. This was the last firework we had. The year that followed, we celebrated our New Year's Eve by staying overnight in a hotel. We just watch all the beautiful fireworks display from our hotel room.

    Excellent entry!

    The city hall there looks nice :) Mall sign was a good choice for RW&B! Lastly, yikes about the fireworks! We usually shot them every year on 4th of July and sometimes on New Years. I do love to watch them, too, tho.

    Your entry # is 36 - that is the number you'll want to be drawn when the contest ends. It ends July 2nd and teh drawing will be posted July 3rd. I am so glad you entered! :) It's fun to see everyones photographs. :)

    Cool photos. It amazes me how much your flag looks like the flag from my home state of Texas.

    Sorry you caught the neighbors garage on fire, but it's a really funny story :)

    Yeah that is a crazy fireworks story. I think that is why they don't have fireworks in California. You can only watch. I had only the few years of my life which I did fireworks, maybe until 4 or 5 years old...

    But now I'm in Canada so it's normal thing to do here.

    My entry is posted too. :)
