#188 Daing at Tuyo


Seafood in Roxas City, it's a reputation that precedes. But today we're in the town of Bay-bay, Roxas City, marveling at a coast blanketed with rows and rows of dried fish. The process is simple enough: small fish are neatly laid out on bamboo trays (called bolaran), doused with salt water, and turned-over several times a day. And just like in photography, it's the sun that does the rest. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: To take successful black & white pictures, you need to see your compositions in black and white. Instead of colors, you need to look for contrasts and shapes, for tonality and patterns. It can be a struggle at first, but the rewards are real.)

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 (murilloarnel@yahoo.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 aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
