It has been said many times over that Lipa City is considered the “Rome of the Philippines” because of the numerous churches and religious attractions the city cradles. Two of Lipa’s most notable churches are the subjects of these photos contributed to us.
Today’s contributor, Alexis G. Paulino, hails from Balintawak, Lipa City. Let’s get to know him first and afterwards, indulge our eyes on his photos of San Sebastian Cathedral and Mt. Carmel Church.
My name is Alexis G. Paulino, my mother is from San Jose, Batangas while my father is from Muñoz, Nueva Ecija. I’m married with 3 sons (studying at De La Salle Lipa). My wife, Jennifer Ramos Paulino, is currently a 3rd year law student at the University of Batangas; she’s from San Juan, Batangas. Our family is presently staying in Balintawak, Lipa City.
I’m currently here abroad working for Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia as an Industrial Skills Trainer in the field of computers. I go home every year and photography has been my hobby since the time of film cameras. I enjoy walking around Lipa and other towns of Batangas during my vacation, capturing photos everywhere, and then posting these pictures in Flickr. We have photography groups here in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain which are mostly composed and organized by Filipinos.
