Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unsual POV

I took this photo last 23 February 2012 while I was making the most of coffee break at my boss’ room in the Office of the Solicitor General’s building. Behind her table is a big glass window that lets you see the view outside crystal clear in broad daylight.  I had always enjoyed looking at…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

There are dark shadows on the earth but its lights are stronger in the contrast (Charles Dickens). I took this shot last 23 January 2011 when I climbed the mystical mountain of Arayat in Pampanga. I was savoring my “take 5” under a dying tree at one point of the descent when the dead twigs…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

The flower (Giant Medinilla Magnifica) in the photo is abundant in almost all the mountains I had climbed so far. It is one of those beautiful plants that still captures my optical organs each time I see it although I already did see it many times. Mount Makiling in the province of Laguna is one…

I Believe in Aliens and UFOs

I read the latest post of one of my new favorite bloggers this morning about his most unforgettable summer story (about a man’s ceremony for getting “purified“) as a way of saying good bye to summer. I was inspired to do the same so I decided to share mine, which is a totally different story….
