Lens Project: Castle on A Hill - Divide


Last summer, (May here in the Philippines) my grandmother went in our home in Manila. As my gift, i gave her a plane ticket going back home to our province. This is my grandmother's first plane ride so i'm excited and so as everyone for her. 

It was 9 years since i went home and everything is exciting and chilling for me. Knowing that i know, lots have changed in there, i will be learning a lot of stories from relatives and people there. 

During the travel, i realized that Ed Sheeran's song perfectly sums about how it feels to go back to a familiar place where you spent your childhood days with loved and close ones. So now i give you my homecoming photography collection that tells the story of going to a place you still call home and how it  has touched you. 

And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
I was younger then, take me back to when I

Found my heart and broke it here
Made friends and lost them through the years

And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
But I can't wait to go home

I'm on my way
Driving at 90 down those country lanes

And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real

We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill.

But these people raised me
And I can't wait to go home
