At sunrise, a lot of things can be happening. As the golden light bathes the grand landscape, what was previously dark and formless turn into a landscape alive with tone and color. Clouds can catch color too, the meandering edge of a lake might suddenly merit your attention, and random wild grass just in front of you now make an interesting foreground. Through all these, a twilight photographer can get completely lost in the moment.
But not everyone is transfixed by the same scene, nor at the same time. After exhausting the compositions in our heads, we start looking around for something else to shoot, and inevitably find each other in our cross-hairs. Yes someone's watching after all, and we have only ourselves to blame. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: There are compositions that you see only through your mind's eye. Others, well the opportunity sometimes just pops-up.)
But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (firstname.lastname@example.org), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers. Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas. No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at email@example.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
