Photography Patrol –  Graduation Must Go On — Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.  Nature and weather spent a day and a half delivering monsoon rainfall to the island of Leyte.  Despite the flooding of rice fields and local rivers, local schools went forward with graduation exercises.  Teachers, parents and students of Mohon Elementary in Tanauan, Leyte, Republic of the Philippines, waded through the water to complete their 57th Graduation Exercises and Recognition Day, Wednesday, March 28, 2012.

Photography Patrol –  Katrina The Communicator.    Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.  The young woman smiling at the camera on the back of the motorcycle is Katrina.  I had my trusty Canon EOS 40 D camera and strolled the streets of Tacloban City.  I am in my "Sam The Photographer" mode, March 13, 2012,  to photograph man on the street moments and events that catch  my eye.  I strolled along the street and I heard, "Take A Picture."  I noticed the smiling Leyte Normal University students, in front of a Sari-Sari Store, so I raised the camera and clicked the shutter.

I turned to the sari sari store owner and asked for a Coca Cola.  The woman smiled at me.  The English to Waray language barrier was obviously in place.  Fortunately, Katrina, the student, explained to the woman and I got my soda.  Katrina, the student, also explained that she is majoring in Mass Communications at the university.
