#222 What's holding you back?



We sometimes wish we were somewhere else, but somehow, getting there is another story.

We were on Cotivas Island in Caramoan, within the comforts of a grass hut during the hottest part of the day. From our cozy vantage point, the scene before us is both enchanting & inviting. We wished we were frolicking the waters instead, it must be so cool & refreshing! But wait, it's just too hot to venture outside, why not wait until the sun goes down?

Well, just as in life, that's one of the reason why we are not where we wish to be.  Sometimes, 'too hard' gets in the way. Now , imagine the possibilities for those who dare. (And if you're a relentless photographer: images that are both enchanting & inviting.) Enjoy.

(Pixel-peeper: By now most of us know we can improve our composition by framing our subject. Just remember that when you reduce the amount of sky in your photograph, you'll need a tad more light to get your photograph properly exposed.)

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.)
