#226 Light & Shadows

Photographers need to find the light, but on Lahoy island in Caramoan, they need to explore the shadows as well.

While braving the merciless sun near midday, I combed that island from as many angles as I could imagine. (A thankless job you'd agree, but someone's got to do the dirty work! <g>) In retrospect, my defining photograph of Lahoy was one taken after I've given up the ghost, after I slipped into the shade to escape the heat. What I didn't find under the sun, I serendipitously discovered in the shadows, while sitting on a beach towel under the shade of a large tree, lazily looking out to sea. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: The next time you think you've shot them all, step into the shadows and think again.)

For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, 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 of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
