#215 It's the company you keep



We spent nearly half of the time driving across the Cordilleras, first through Benguet, and then the Mountain Province, before eventually arriving in Kalinga. How can a photograph be worth such an arduous journey?

You see, it's so much easier when you travel with friends. You get to listen to someone else' stories, re-live their experiences, learn from each other, and generally catch up on life. Your soul comes home richer than you started, which is more than I can say about being caught in city traffic. And while every now and then it appears to be all about the photograph, in truth it seldom is. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: When surrounded by such wonderful landscapes, don't forget to stop and smell the flowers... I mean to stop and look at the small but important stuff. Sharing a few cups of coffee with friends at inconsequential rest stops made all the difference.)

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.)
