A word is worth a thousand pictures-Jude B

Giant Bag of Stars

It’s a bird it’s a plane, no it’s a huge Red bag rolling down Roxas Boulevard! I included the van on the right hand corner to have a better size reference. Segunda Mano float wins it for me during the MMFF (Metro Manila Film fest) Parade last Dec. 24, 2011. Photo by Jude Bautista.

I’ve seen my share of floats but “Segunda Mano” takes the cake for sheer audacity. Shaped like a giant red hand bag, it didn’t seem like it could move. It was one of the faster moving ones at the Metro Manila Film fest Parade last Dec. 24, 2011. The film’s stars Kris Aquino, Ding Dong Dantes, Angelica Panganiban and Bangs Garcia were perched on top where the zipper or opening is supposed to be. It was hard not to look at Angelica Panganiban’s ‘puppies’, she had a sheer blouse.

This is an in camera effect not Photoshopped. It was achieved by zooming through a slow shutter. The crowds were there early for the MMFF (Metro Manila Film fest) Parade at the Roxas Blvd last Dec. 24, 2011. Photo by Jude Bautista
