Early Bird


As the saying goes, “the early bird catches the worm”. I say, the early bird catches beautiful sunrises. 🙂 Here are some astounding sunrises I was able to witness when I was in Dumaguete City:

These were taken from the city’s Roxas Boulevard which has a very good view of sunrises. Hence, I made sure to book at a hotel facing the boulevard. Imagine having this view every morning. 🙂

Good Morning!


Frequent visitors of this blog probably already know I am sucker for sunrises and sunsets.  Instead of thinking about coffee, news or how I look when I wake up, I usually look at the clock to see if I can still catch the sunrise or if I already missed it. Depending on what time I wake up or in which side of the Philippines I am, I can end up with a view like this:

.. or this…

Pardon the electric wires.

And if I am on a travel and I am with friends or offcemates, I can end up asking them  to do this early in the morning:

Failed timing.

Good morning! Jump and feel how alive you are. 🙂

This post is my entry to Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge with the theme Good Morning!

The Golden Hour


I feel bad for not posting new pictures for this week’s challenge again. However, when I saw the the phrase “the golden hour”, my mind did a happy jump because I’ve been dying for this opportunity to come up. I think I already mentioned in a separate post that I love sunrise and sunsets. I simply love the light during such hours and the magic it instantly bring to the subject of the photograph. Today, I am sharing several “golden hour” photos that I collected over the years. First up is a picture of two trees which I took while waiting for a cab in Subic:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

These pictures were taken in the past and they serve as reminders of the places I’ve been to. But more than that, it’s a reminder of the promise I made to myself to take pictures of either of sunrise or sunsets in  the places I will go to. Rather than being a testaments to the beauty of nature, these pictures are a token of the promise I made to myself to keep discovering new places and to keep learning from experiences.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun


I’ve been waiting for this challenge. Sun, sun, sun. I love everything about the sun. This is why when I go to a certain place especially the beach, I try to take pictures of the sunrise and the sunset. There’s something about the sun that gets me but whatever that is I still do not know up to now. So, without further ado…

Sunset at Nasugbu, Batangas.

Sunset at Puerto Galera, Mindoro.

Sun at Bagac, Bataan.
