Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Texture is probably the most critical quality attribute of all fruits, whether it is to assess ripeness or functional performance in their processed forms. Coupled with color in its aesthetic sense, it can turn fruits exquisitely appealing to the eyes.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top

If there’s one field that I find quite challenging in the science of creating images, it would be aerial photography. This is something I get to do—only—whenever I go on vacation to my homeland (Philippines). This is when I can snap overhead shots of a place on sight through the airplane’s window. The picture, which covers an…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

My mug on top in the photo below is a tangible object–adorned with simple but profound reminders. “Our photographs tell stories, big and small. Some of our images are landscapes, offering wide and sweeping views of a scene; these pictures might tell the tales of an entire city, or a tapestry of stories of many…

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: Flowers

Flowers have always been an important part of our lives especially the moment love knocks on our doors. Throughout history, lovers have given flowers to each other as a token of their longing, devotion, and love.  The sala of our old home used to have plenty of wallpapers cut from calendars since we couldn’t afford…
