Loving Image, Loving Photography

I just love shooting them all! In color, in black and white and in sepia which is by the way my favorite.
I first fell in love with my dad's Nikon camera when I was four years old. He did not allow us to manipulate his camera but he sure did allow us to take a peek on the eyepiece and press the click button.
I started taking pictures when I was in college using a manual camera. I would photograph my friends and all the places we've been hanging around in the metro. I'm not the kind who goes with the flow when it comes to new things or "uso".
When digicam became an "in thing", my sisters and I  still use the good old manual camera.
I bought my first digicam just last 2008 in Baguio City. I was with my ate Althea when I purchased it for 2000 pesos only. It's an image s30 and it's made in China. Although it's not that high-tech, i truly love my digicam. It's very light weight and the color's purple. By 2009, my image s30 digicam was locked away in a box due to frequent moving and wedding preparations. Last week, I found my beloved camera and boy was I very very happy!
Now I'm starting to take pictures again using my good-old-low-tech digital camera.

No SLR for me right now. All I know is I can take perfect pictures by just using my images30.

Jaen, Nueva Ecija...back to the basics

Last month my family and I with one family guest went on a road trip going to Jaen, Nueva Ecija to visit tatay and other relatives there. At first I did not want to go because we will be leaving at around 5AM and I have difficulty waking up very early. But when I got in the vehicle I was suddenly motivated to go. Seeing the sunrise and knowing that we will be going on a long joy ride awakened my senses that easily.

Bignay, the miracle fruit

Little piggies ♥
Our first stop was tatay's on-going-construction-of-his-house. We were pleased to see more improvements in his house compared to last time we saw it. I took pictures of his house, some bignay, which is a miracle fruit and of course flowers. Next, we went to tatay's younger sister where they served us the best tasting green mangoes (no salt needed). After which we went to our friend's ninong and ninang who happened to live just nearby. We had lunch there and siesta. Again, I took pictures of the farm animals(ducks, pigs and piglets, dogs, cats, chickens and chicks) my nieces, Tal and the rest of the gang had fun there. The children appreciated the simple life in the province of Jaen. The elders loved the sweet, clean air and the richness of the land. Before we went back to tatay's house tita gave us sacks of bigas and lots and lots of green mangoes (yummy).

A simple life ♥

I can't wait to see and visit Jaen again. I hope tatay's house would be finished soon so we can go back there. Back to the basics.

FaiLuRes

The Top Ten FAILURES Of All Time
(Got this from God’s Little Lessons for TEENS)

  1. The engineer who neglected to design a reverse gear in the first car he manufactured.
  2. The group turned down by Decca Records because “guitars are on their way out.”
  3. The illustrator told by his newspaper editor to pursue another line of work.
  4. The skinny kid who hated the way he looked and was always being beaten up by bullies.
  5. The seriously ill, deeply in debt composer who in desperation wrote an oratorio in a few hours.
  6. The obese, bald, deformed eccentric became a reclusive thinker.
  7. The orchestra conductor-composer who made his greatest contributions after becoming deaf.
  8. The politician who lost his first seven elections.
  9. The boy everyone thought was mute because his stutter was so bad he never spoke until he was a teenager.
  10. The woman born deaf and blind who became a great writer and philanthropist and once said, “I thank GOD for my handicaps.”

The next time anyone under estimates himself or calls himself a failure, remember that our greatest failures can produce our greatest success.

Care to guess who the following people are?

Happy Anniversary...It's been a year

It's been a year since we prepared our hearts, our minds and our spirits.
It's been a year since you and I became one.
It's been a year since we surrendered ourselves to God's will.
It's been a year since we were blessed as one. It's been a year since we said our I do's.

Thank you dear Lord for blessing our first year of togetherness. 
May we, in return give You glory each day of our lives. 

Happy Anniversary to my loving hubbyLents.♥

Saturday Night In Malate

Another spur of the moment decision by my hubby Tal after visiting our doctor in UST hospital last July 18th. He decided that we should go visit Malate instead of the usual SM and Trinoma.

We enjoyed the sights and sounds made by the busy streets and the lively people. It was very nostalgic for me that night. I used to go to Malate and Baywalk during my childhood and college days with my family and friends.

I was glad Cafe Adriatico was still standing.We had dinner there and long romantic talks about Tal's amazing and funny experiences during his college days. 

The long walks and unending talks made us tired and weary so we retired in one of the hotels there called Las Palmas. 

Hoping to have another romantic dinner date with hubby in another majestic place.
