#235 Eye of the Beholder


Imagine a wooden boat... No... an old wooden boat: worn, unloved, and left to the elements along a lake's edge. Now imagine further a photographer-of-sorts, who knelt and stared at this forsaken boat, first from one angle, and then from another, before eventually nodding as he lifted his camera to his eyes, and then squeezed the trigger. Replay multiple times.

Now I don't know what he saw in that old wreck, nor why it could be worth more than a cursory look and stare, but he obviously saw something I didn't, beauty after all is in the eye of the beholder. Enjoy.

(Pixel-Peepers: Try adding another dimension to your landscapes by anchoring them with a foreground of interest. Remember to keep your foreground and horizon in equal in focus. Hyper-focal focusing. Google it.)

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.)
