#58 Morning Shadows




"I don't see a picture of you on your blog..." she wrote.

If it's any consolation, there are scant pictures of me online. And it's not because I'm camera shy. You see, a photographer spends much of his life on the opposite end of his camera, busy showing everyone else what his world looks like. And unless the sun was shining from behind him when he took a picture, you won't even see his shadow! (Much unlike today's photograph taken in barangay Caliit-liitan in Carranglan Nueva Ecija. It's my pleasure to introduce you to my shadow on the lower left-hand corner of the photograph, beside the shadows of two other kids who followed me around.) 

But here's the good news. I can tell a lot about a person just by looking at his/her pictures. By their choice of subjects I can tell what they love. By their compositions, I can tell the kind of perspectives they are predisposed to see their world. And by the stories their photographs tell, I get a glimpse of who they are even if we've never met. And yes, it's a pleasure knowing you too! Enjoy.

  2. Everytime I look at your pictures I feel like I'm transported into a surreal dimension. That's what I call photography. :-)
