#282 A Golden Selfie

Do real photographers take selfies? 

While exploring the swamps of Candaba last year, attempting a selfie was the farthest thing on my mind. I was in a magical place. I was within the golden hour.  Everywhere I looked... a photograph was just begging to be taken. But as I meandered past this lone tree.. along a trail that cut through the swamplands... I spotted a most familiar sight... a silhouette of sorts... one that has accompanied me in many adventures of past. A selfie? Who me? Naw...! Oh why not?! Enjoy. (That's Mt. Arayat in the distance.) 

(Pixel-peepers: In a lifetime, a photographer can amass many thousand pictures... of what's notable & noteworthy. But if scarcity is the true measure of value, the handful of selfie's will ultimately be the most valuable. And cherished. Like gold.)

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.)
