We just had to head downtown to see what all the Riot Police were doing here in the city. Sure enough we found ourselves in the middle of a protest during the Apex 2015 here in Bacolod City. I had an opportunity to shoot an image titled “Face off in Bacolod City” where the protesters were face to face with the Philippines National Police just up from SM mall.
PNP (Philippines National Police)
The Philippines National Police did a fantastic and professional job while dealing with the protesters downtown. The PNP closed ranks and simply stood their ground while the Protesters had their say concerning the various political and financial complaints. I have been living here in Bacolod going on 7 months now, I have had the opportunity to interact with the PNP and on each occasion I can
only say how professional and friendly everyone was.

I will be adding a couple of the pictures from the protest to the Street photography Gallery if you are interested in seeing some of the other images. The Philippines offers such a wide variety of picture opportunities, and I love being here as I have been shooting pictures whenever possible.
