52Photos Project #3: Light and Dark

52 Photos Project

These photos were taken on November, 2008 when the family visited the graves of the departed ones.  Every year,  in the Philippines, November 1 is declared as a special non-working holiday in observance of  All Saints’ Day followed by the observance of All Souls’ Day on November 2.

“A misstep many make: they mistake darkness for meaning. They think light is easy. They think light will find a way through the crack in the door by itself. But it doesn’t – you have to open the door & let it in.”
