Long shadows formed late in the afternoon at Pinaglaban Shrine (also, The Spirit of Pinaglabanan), in San Juan City. While doing my regular practice flying the drone one afternoon, I noticed the long shadows created by the the setting sun. I hovered my drone above the Shrine to observe the activities of the people below. This lone jogger caught my attention as the only moving element in the scene. I waited for the right moment to press the shutter on my remote controller. And boom, I got it. It was lucky shot.
Lucky shots come far and wide. It takes patience and the right pair of eyes to be there at that right moment. I continued to hover the aircraft while taking photos that interests me until the battery went low. Of all the photos I’ve taken that afternoon, I liked this the most.
Pinaglaban Shrine in San Juan has become a default place for drone operators to hone their skills. Myself included, I spent many hours in this site to sharpen my skills and try out some drone moves. The place boasts sizeable area that became a favorite place for drone operators. It also a melting pot of people to congregate and hang out.
Looking back, The Pinaglabanan Shrine (Pang-alaalang Dambana ng Pinaglabanan) is built in 1973 to commemorate the heroism of Katipuneros who started a nationwide revolt against Spanish Rule towards the end of 1896. It sits on a 5 hectare land in San Juan City.
