World Pyro Olympics 2008 Finale

La Mancha's Streak of Colors

La Mancha’s Streak of Colors

UPDATE: Team Italy won!
The much awaited World Pyro Olympics 2008 has finally came to a close last night. After much delays in actually starting it, some cancellations and back-outs the event did fairly well to cap it off. Oddly enough, we weren’t able to hear who the winner was. My bet’s with Italy but will update this post when I hear word. Not only was this special ending, was able to meet some other photographers at the event as well.

Word Pyro Olympics 2008: Venezuela vs Italy

Venezuela Opening Colors

This year’s World Pyro Olympics is as unpredictable as the rains. It’s not such a good idea to have it held at the onset of the rainy season. Last week was supposed to be Venezuela and Italy’s fireworks display. But because of the rains, strong winds and waves, the show didn’t push through on both days of the weekends. Last Saturday, seeing the weather more favorable, we headed down Mall of Asia and was positively waiting for the show to start. Fortunately it did.

Before I write about the Opening night of my “Living By Water” exhibit, let me out this one first. Actually I’m still waiting for the photos to post for that night. But it was a really pleasant opening and very thankful to the attendees. The World Pyro Olympics is one visual sensory feast a lot of people in Manila are looking forward to. I was able to attend a night during last year’s Pyro Olympics and enjoyed the fireworks display that I was looking forward to this one as well. It was real funny that the date has been moved more than 3 times until it finally settled this month of May.
