#257 Gotcha!

While wandering the dirt roads through the Candaba swamps in Pampanga, we chanced upon this boy fishing beside a shallow ditch, intent on outsmarting whatever was in its depths. Soon we heard a small splash just as he lunged-forward to retrieve his line. Gotcha! Oops. Not! Whatever it was, like the proverbial cat with nine lives, it will live to bite another day, leaving the boy frustrated, as there can be only one winner in "tugs-of-war of this sort." Strangely familiar? Enjoy.

(Pixel-Peepers: The strong side light in the early mornings help your captures look sharp and crisp, while at the same time can paint dreamy reflections on a calm water's surface. Gotcha! At least one of us caught something that morning!)

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 (, 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.)
