Blood, Nails and Prayers

The Philippines is the largest Christian country in Asia where devotees take their religion very seriously. The wilder excesses of the faith are best seen during Easter festivals. Depictions of Christ’s last days and the re-enactment of obscure biblical stories climax with human blood flying off the backs of those who whip themselves and real crucifixions using six inch nails.

Point and Shoot

The sleek perfection of the German Luger compared to the crude British Sten gun. I fired all of them. That was all a long time ago. In retrospect it was a form of catharsis. I became a pacifist dedicated to non-violence. I’ve covered many wars and seen what bullets do to flesh and I’m rather proud to say that I got all that macho stuff out of my system in my youth.
