Photographer's Note

The best-preserved example of a planned Spanish colonial town in Asia can be seen at Calle Crisologo in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, Philippines. It is a half-kilometer stretch of cobble-stoned street lined with fine examples of 18th century Filipino-Spanish architecture. Many of the houses have those typical wooden benches in front where anyone can sit. Kalesas, or horse-drawn carriages, are the only vehicles allowed on the street. You would feel transported back more than a hundred years to the Spanish colonial era when you walk along Calle Crisologo.

Taken at around 11am with Canon 40D and EF 24-77mm @ focal length of 27mm, aperture of f/22, exposure time of 1/125 sec. and ISO-400. Post processed at LR 2.2 and CS4.
