#243 A Fleeting Moment


Life is short, but what can be even shorter? The moment, of course!

On Minanga Este in Buguey Cagayan, on top of a hill by the sea, I found a solitary patch of grass struggling with the dunes. Grass on a sand dune can be smothered in time, but even that's a long time compared to the moment I was in. The patterns on the sand were formed by wave upon wave of wind blowing in from the sea... continously re-arranging each particle. And then there's the light from an approaching sunset, whose warm colors and long shadows aren't going to last more than a few minutes. The moment I was in... was indeed fleeting... more fleeting than life itself. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Near sunset and within the golden hour, shadows-in-transit and saturated colors are everywhere. Move quickly and don't hesitate... the moment escapes.)

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.)
