WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: NEAR AND FAR

Sigh! This challenge reminded me of this popular song from the 1990’s.  It came from a very popular movie too. Near, far, wherever you are  I believe that the heart does go on  Once more you open the door  And you’re here in my heart  And my heart will go on and on … Ooops, IContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: NEAR AND FAR”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FREE SPIRIT

I will take this one literally. 🙂   I took a picture of these doves in a place called Blue Rose Farms in Lipa City, Batangas, Philippines.   For a P175.00 entrance fee (roughly $3.50), we were able to walk around and see the animals and enjoys a simple lunch of grilled fish or meat.Continue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FREE SPIRIT”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: URBAN – A slice of Metro Manila

One of my most anticipated events during my sort-of-a-homecoming was the visit to my former officemates.   I felt like coming home since the area that they were in -granting that they moved to a new office address – was the place where I spent most of my waking hours working and amusing myself inContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: URBAN – A slice of Metro Manila”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: MERGE

I scratched my head when I learned about the prompt.  I do not know how to use photoediting software to be able to merge photos.  And right now, my mind is preoccupied with a million things to be done to get back in the daily routine (after another long break) and to prepare for theContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: MERGE”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: GROWTH

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth, I am posting pictures of lichen and other fungus that grow on trees, dead or alive. I took these photos in mid-spring while on a vacation in Maine.  One day, we walked in the woods and I noticed how these growth made the trunks of the trees lookContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: GROWTH”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Purple

I have difficulty capturing purple, deep purple, e.g., the deep purple of the gladiolus.   When I take a photo with the right exposure (as indicated by those nifty little marks in my camera), the color turns out red purple, not deep blue purple as it should be. Look!     The color should beContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Purple”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Inside (Churches)

I like this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme – Inside.  It gives me the excuse (hah!)  to upload some of the photos I have of our Philippine vacation.   In this post, I invite you to go inside the Churches that my family and I visited recently:  (A)  Basilica of Saint Martin of Tours inContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Inside (Churches)”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Dream

Light and shadow play in my mind conjuring a vision so familiar, so undefined. I see my world though through a veil It is what it is Yet, it’s not the same. The people I know wear a different face Events I think odd are just commonplace. I want to know how such things canContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Dream”

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Sun

For the Weekly Photo Challenge, I took several pictures of the sun at around 12:30 p.m., when the sun was way up there in the sky.  It was, to say the least, a most uncomfortable experience to the eye.  Hopefully, staring at the sun and squinting at the camera would not bring a big headacheContinue reading “WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: Sun”
