Frogs and catholicism in the Philipines... Has this, by any chance, lead to the sanctification of Kermit? Saint Kermit, the patron saint of all frogs - why not... :-)

Hello again Sidney, just enjoying your wonderful photoblog and to thank you for the thoughtful comments you left me.

I don't know what you put in that camera of yours but it sure makes the photos come out alive and vibrant. You got the touch!

now that's funny. he's like a mythical creature now. half frog half human. say like the mythical garuda (half human, half bird) or griffin (half phoenix, half lion) or the centaur (half man, half horse). i like a nice laugh before putting that huge froggy head on.

I prefer this to the frogs actually being dressed up.

Ils ont de l'humour ces filipinos. Et puis toujours entre dérision et désespoir!
Vu "Tribu" de Jim Libiran à l'Alliance . Ca se passe à Tondo! film moyen mais vision terrible de la vie dans ce quartier
