#277 Death, Taxes, and your Laundry


Death & taxes. Now add laundry to that inescapable list. Sigh.

Where Taal lake overflows into the Pansipit River in San Nicolas Batangas, doing your laundry might not be all that bad. Imagine the moist morning air on your face, the cool running water under your feet, and the warm glow from a rising sun amidst the fantastic backdrop of a placid lake... heck... for folks who live here, it's really just death & taxes. Enjoy.

(Pixel-Peepers: Rural scenes of simple living can still be found just a few hours from the city. But in our lifetime, most of them will likely vanish. Gone. No more. Nada. IMO, anyone with a camera has an obligation to document their world. Because future generations demand that we do.)

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.)
