Dormant State


I just came from facilitating a team building workshop at the Emerald Playa Nature and Beach Park, and I’m happy that it went well for the staff of the corporation that hired me. Where I am, it’s the biggest that distributes Coca-Cola products.

There is a pressing call to rest; the body is tired, but the mind is still functioning at almost full speed. And denying to be torn between S.W.A.T. and Constantine, which I have seen countless times, I opted to provide with adequate attention my other passion that is recently in dormant state — photography.

Here it is.


I started today by reading a personal essay on passion written by a very smart and bright teen. The funny thing is, I have never met this teen, only her father who is the kindest man.

One fact I like about the essay was the mention of Nancy Drew, an illusory character in a series of mystery fiction books that I also read when I was growing up. The fictional character is considered a cultural icon for her contributions to the formative years of many women, including mine 🙂

It’s nice to reminisce…


Sunset Interlude

Sunset Interlude

Exposure 1/60 sec at F14 // Focal Length 135mm // ISO 100 // Did not fire flash // Handheld // Canon EOS 7D

Every time I see sunset, what Mahatma Gandhi said would always come to mind: “When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the Creator.”

It’s truly how I feel — my chest expands in worship of God, who made the beauty of the sunset possible. I always receive that feeling of uplifting renewal; that feeling of being refreshed after getting stuck in life routines that are difficult to deal with.

Sunset at Roxas Boulevard has always been different from anywhere else, and I don’t know why is that.
