opening shots

I need to redefine the meaning of "mob".

The opening of SM Marilao, which I handled the photo shoot for, was quite an experience.

After Henry Sy (tycoon owner of all the SM Malls and SM Prime and many many other things) opened the doors, the crowd surged in like a tidal wave, fighting over balloons and flowers, in a chaotic motion that brought to my mind the title of one of Gerry's works - ochlocracy, mob rule.

So into dervish mode we went, matching the seething crowd, taking shots of opportunity as madness ensued.

Much later, when things calmed down, we went around and took the requisite shots of everything else.

But, my God, nothing matched those first moments.
