It is amazing to see different kinds of fireworks all synchronised together in their explosion as shown in this glorious piece. Platinum Fireworks 2011 - 01 by ~HariNgDuga portrays the festive mood and the celebratory occasion in great focus and intensity. (
Firstly, please realize that a City cannot murder people; people murder people. Secondly, our country neither wished for this to happen nor do we find it any less atrocious than the people of Hong Kong.
The act of cowardice was committed by a desperate man enraged by a faulty line of authority, corrupt officials, rating-greedy media, and clueless law enforcement. If you choose to be shallow and blame an entire country for the sins of a few, then I cannot help you.
However, I pray you could open your mind and see through the blind anger to realize that no one, not even us Filipinos, wished for this to happen. Lives were lost, and that is never acceptable.
Yes, it occurred in our country, and yes, it was the lack of knowledge, training, efficiency, and chain of command that lead to the unfortunate deaths. But if you think every one of us wanted it to happen, you are sorely mistaken.
this was the 2nd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition, a Fireworks event where Pyrotechnic companies from across the globe were invited to our country to compete for two months in a display of Fireworks synchronized to music.
I serve as the official photo/videographer for the organizing company, Platinum Fireworks Inc., who presented a closing exhibition - a shot of which being the image you see.
