Random Shots Friday: The Monkey

"If you look at the monkeys,
you can learn many things about men:
if you look at the men,
you can learn many things about madness!"
- Mehmet Murat Ildan



One thing I learned in photography is to have eye-to-eye contact with your subject especially animals. I took several shots of this monkey but this is the only one it was looking directly on the lens.

By the way, this monkey is at Divine Mercy Shrine in Marilao, Bulacan. I just hope they got permit from the wildlife bureau before placing them in cages.

Flower Power Tuesday: Luminous Flowers



“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me.
I ought never to have run away from her...
I ought to have guessed all the affection 
that lay behind her poor little stratagems.
Flowers are so inconsistent!” 
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince


Just want to share one of my experiments in photo-editing by making the flowers luminous. By the way here is the original photo:

Nature's Touch Monday: The Dragonfly



“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery - 
air, mountains, trees, people.
I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.”
-Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar




This is one of the photos I had a chance to recover after reformatting my computer. Good that I posted some of them in my FB account.

I think this shot is much better if I use a macro lens or even macro conversion lens. Any sponsor? LOL.

Nature's Touch Monday: The Golden Grain

“A simple act of kindness
is the size of a rice grain that
can weigh as heavy as a mountain.”
- Feroz Bham


I remember that one of the symbol of my Alma Mater is the palay or we referred to as "Golden Grain". Actually, our year book is named after it.

Being humble is like a grain of rice that bows towards the ground as it gain weight.

Start the week with a smile!

Nature's Touch Monday: Water Droplet

"You must not lose faith in humanity.
Humanity is an ocean;
if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean does not become dirty."
-Mahatma Gandhi
