#241 A Good Book


We all know the value of a good book, a comfortable pillow, and some downtime.

We were on Puka Beach in Boracay on an unusually sunny day. And since it was supposed to be raining, the beach is nearly deserted of folks who didn't take a chance.  But for those who thought the weather will be exactly what she is, wildly unpredictable and certainly unexpected, nice things can still happen. Just don't leave your book and pillow at home. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: A really bright beach scene can have many sources of reflection, and it's these reflections that can reduce the contrast of your photographs. The water's surface, the wet sand, even the distant foliage, they all can look dull and washed-out if there's too much glare. Luckily, a polarizing filter can do wonders. The result is strong and faithful colors without post-processing.)

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.)
