People often ask me where I find the Virgin Mary shrines/ altars I shoot for my Street Side Grottoes series. (http://gemismyname.com/gallery/street-side-grottos/)

I thought I'd make a video of this latest one that I spotted and wanted to photograph to show you guys.

I shot the graffiti artist Flip One last month doing a wall in Taytay, Rizal. This is a 37 second timelapse video of the process.
I'm still editing the full video. In the meantime, hope you guys enjoy this.
Note: Baybayin is the ancient Philippine precolonial alphabet.
