CAMIGUIN | Church Ruins
Remains Of A Church Long Burried In Ash
Travel Bloggers call this Black Tourism, were you feature places and locations that had a violent or dark history behind it. Camiguin is not called the Island Born of The Fire for nothing, as the entire island itself is littered with many volcanoes both old a new ones. The Sunken Cemetery is just one evidence of the force of nature lurking beneath the island. What I witnessed here in the Old Church Ruins is what's left of the original foundation of a church, could have been a Cathedral in respect because its obvious that it was a huge edifice before a Volcanic eruption ruined it.
They're several visitors in here when we explored this ruins, but most stayed for just a few minutes, just having their pictures taken to show to some friends back home that they've been here, I can't blame them. As for me, it's enough that I've learned a bit of Camiguin's history, I'm falling in love with Camiguin more on every location I visit. A very peaceful place with rich history, what more can you ask for.
I've always had the eye for Architecture, being a frustrated Architect myself. I like making perspectives of buildings and shapes, even making DIY miniatures of buildings and churches just for display. Not much is left of the Old Church but a moss filled walls that provide a sanctuary for a small chapel inside. As a photographer, I find this place perfect for photo shoots, like prenuptial shoots. The green colors, moss covered walls and filtered lights give an interesting shadow play if you know where to find a good light source. As what I did with my travel buddy, we both made an on the spot photo op for ourselves as you can see in the following pictures below.
