On a really muggy day, a restless mind can drift back to better times...
I was shooting alone, without the usual suspects, on this deserted stretch of sand where the weather was warm, the sky was blue, and the sea was green. There I found a row of empty chairs under a cool shade, all looking out to an emerald sea. And what a scene it was. You see, that's the thing about photography. When you stumble onto a scene you don't want to forget, you can freeze the moment, and save it for the future. Forever. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: You can wait until your composition is just right, but think about the other moments you'll miss while waiting. I usually try several shots from different vantage points, but find that I often return to the very first one I took. Does that prove a photographer can only see what he wants to see?)
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 (email@example.com), 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 firstname.lastname@example.org of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
