Whacky Photo: San Juanico Bridge

Samar Leyte Bridge
..connecting lives.

The San Juanico Bridge, also known as the Marcos Bridge, connecting Western Samar and Northern Leyte border stands above the San Juanico Strait dividing Samar and Leyte islands. With a total length of 2.16 kilometers (1.34 mi), it is the longest bridge in the Philippines spanning a body of seawater. Tacloban City on the Leyte side and Santa Rita town on the Samar side, crossing it would provide give you a wonderful view of the San Juanico Strait with its thousand whirlpools, the islets of the both provinces, and towering mountains in the background. It is not only a sight to behold but an instrument that enriches lives and businesses in both the provinces.
When I was a kid, I used to collect postcards, not because I enjoyed it but because our Social Studies teacher would coerced  require us to compile these Philippine landmarks. This became one of my inspirations. Back then, I wanted to be able to capture a postcard moment not just in photos but as a part of a mental image.

This is me, reliving my childhood dream. This is me, trying to make making  my dreams into reality.
This image is a part of the 'Whacky Photo series' where I highlight the images of landmarks that we used to collect or see on posters.
