#305 A Tug-O-War

At twilight, just as in life, there are always bigger forces at play.

We found ourselves in a rice field on the outskirts of Sorsogon City at dusk. The sun's departure is almost complete, leaving just vestiges of light over a landscape that has been swallowed by the dark. Except for the sky, everything else is cloaked in shadows. So why are we still standing around gazing in the direction of the light? Because when the forces of light battle the hordes of darkness, opportunities abound. Just as in life. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: The twilight photographer's toolbox: a good tripod, a promising vantage point, and an unrelenting optimism that luck favours the prepared mind.)

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.)
