Selected snappies forwarded to me from His Honor Florentino V. Floro, Jr. from his travels to places of power in the Philippines

Copyright whoever was holding the camera, I guess. Floro's been pretty generous with the handing them out, so I'm guessing he doesn't mind further sharing as long as people mention who's in the shot and where they came from. Top to bottom: Crown Peak Gardens, Subic; Paoay Heritage Church, Ilocos Norte; Sagada, Mountain Province, Benguet; San Juanico Bridge.

That bottom one is really very good

I agree the bottom one is very good.

Don't ask me why because I can't say but there is something vaguely disturbing about these shots, not sure if it is the grainy quality or what..

They are the kind of pictures you see published when the subject turns out to be some manic dictator/gang leader/murderer etc in later life.

I'm sure Floro is a nice guy and will turn out to be no of the above :D

The bottom one is my favorite, too.

This is the guy who was suspended/fired/separated from his position as a judge in the Philippines because the Supreme Court there found him to suffer from mental difficulties that, while not necessarily completely debilitating, were not appropriate to the office of a judge. Something about believing he has a personal relationship with spirit beings that provide him with healing powers and require him to bestow curses on corrupt justices in the Philippines' court system. Which, by many opinions including his own, is just about all of them.

I sent him a bunch of questions to interview him for my column at The Footnote and tried my damnedest to distill the response he gave me into an article (to be published Dec 1, so you'll have to wait).

There's enough material for a book. As for manic dictator/gang leader/murderer ... well, possibly not that direction, but certainly something around that scale/scope. Potentially.

If I didn't have to work for a living, I'd be working on that book right now.

I'll post some kind of reminder when the article goes live. My editor got the draft a few days ago and has already whined about how it hurt his head....
