#193 The Flower Farm


A solitary flower is beauty manifest... but a field of them is truly a sight to behold.

(Pixel-peepers: We were at The Flower Farm in Tagaytay where greenhouses were crammed with Gerberas of various colors. First-time visitors panic and shoot like crazy, but for those who've done this before, the camera isn't raised to the eye until you find a worthy composition.

You can focus on a single flower and isolate it from the rest. Or you can take a step back to catch a multitude in a single shot. Better still, achieve both by using the biggest aperture on your lens to keep some in focus, while allowing the rest to blur into the background. Enjoy.)

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.)

  1. Buying flowers online is a quick and easy way to show that special someone you care, without having to spend hours looking to find the right flowers. With fast and easy delivery, a great range of flowers and traditional bouquets are available at prices that are very reasonable in most cases. Having a certain type of floral arrangement in mind helps narrow down your selection process. hand bouquet singapore
