The bell tower at the church of La Porteria on the side of barangay San Francisco can give one a good look of the Parada- the urban area where the streets of barangay San Pablo, San Isidro, Del Carmen, San Roque, San Francisco, and San Antonio intersects. Here distinct landmarks are clustered like the town’s market, few commercial buildings, the municipal hall, the police station, bus terminal, the Octagon multi-purpose hall, to name a few. We’ve been to that tower when we were little and get dizzy staring at the ground below and beyond.

For one, the tallest buildings in the town of Calabanga is no higher than three storeys. and they are located witihin the section we want to take a frame.

Although there had been many times we took a Philippine airlines flight to and from Manila from the Naga airport and on some occasions the flight would swing by the area, we haven’t had any opportunity to capture one frame using a cheap instamatic camera.

So how do we get a good impression of the vicinity other than taking a snap from the window of a plane or helicopter or using the Google satellite-generated image?

Cbanga360’s Tony, Jr., clambered on the telecom tower located at barangay San Pablo (there are 2) to get just the photo above. With three cellular communication towers located about the town poblacion, one can now get different bird’s-eye view of the locality. We don’t want to encourage enthusiasts to climb the towers for one beautiful shot, but if you do, please be careful and get the permission of an authorized personnel. It’s not an easy task.
