Some mornings you just need to drag yourself out of bed.
We were in a fishing village in Buguey Cagayan waiting for the sun to appear. I strained to contain my yawns, wondering why I'm not in bed at 4am. But as soon the misty sky took on a deep yellow hue, all hell broke loose. Your heart starts to race as you feel adrenaline surge through your body. You scan the horizon... spot something near the water's edge... walk up to it while lifting your camera to your eye. Click. Click. Click. Then you recall what you've known all along... this is why we do this. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: A lot can be said about being in the right place at the right time. Set that alarm clock to 4am and give yourself some extra time ponder the big questions in life.)
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 (email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
I wish I shared your enthusiasm for mornings. I will have to be content with seeing your beautiful sunrise photos.ReplyDelete
