#297 Dawn Silhouettes


In Tagburos, a small town on the coast of Puerto Princesa in Palawan, we were greeted at dawn by an unusually low tide that stranded fishing boats in ankle-deep water. With nary a wind nor a wave, the shallows turned into a near perfect mirror-image of the sky above. Fishermen were scurrying from shore to their boats, then pulling them into deeper water. Low tide notwithstanding, they have families to feed. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: At the crack of dawn, as the dark tones of the night begin to lift, it's still not bright enough to see anything except silhouettes on a monochromatic landscape. It's a challenge to tell a story, yet tell we must.)

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.)
