Family Day Sunday: Stand out from Gray

Here is my last entry for the week. I make the background in GRAY leaving the main subject colored for additional emphasis.

"You're dead if you aim only for kids.
Adults are only kids grown up, anyway."
- Walt Disney




"As kids we're not taught how to deal with success;
we're taught how to deal with failure.
If at first you don't succeed,
try, try again.
If at first you succeed,
then what?"
- Charlie Sheen


The first photo is taken during Matt's birthday while the second was captured on his summer class graduation.

I agree with the second quotation. We usually hear that we should not be afraid to fail because we can try until we hit our goals but when we succeed in our first try, what we should do next? Based on experience, we should not stop on that instead we can aim higher for further improvement.

Happy Sunday!

Random Shots Friday: Maroon

Here is my entry for the day: MAROON

"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared."

Up, Up and Away Wednesday: Blue

It's mid-week already and here is my entry for the week.Talking about "up, up and away", BLUE will be the easiest color you can think of.

"Clouds do not really look like camels
or sailing ships
or castles in the sky. 
They are simply natural process at work. 
So too, perhaps are our lives."
- Roger Ebert

Nueva Ecija Sky

This scenery is taken in a by-pass road in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija.

"The soul can split the sky in two and let the face of God Shine through."
- Edna St. Vincent Millary


Taken shot is captured in Bamban, Tarlac.

Do you enjoy watching the blue sky?

Flower Power Tuesday: Pink

Here is my today's entry for challenge. PINK

"I believe in pink.
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
- Audrey Hepburn

The pink calachuchi

"Pink isn't just a color,
it's an attitude"
- Miley Cyrus
Two-Toned Flower (Four O'clock flower)
Some say that pink is a girl color but for me it is more of a masculine color. Just like what I saw in one of statement shirt: "Only real man can wear PINK."

Nature's Touch Monday: Green

I've been in hiatus for a while in my Captured Moments post. In order to get back on track, I set a challenge for myself this week. I will try to post different photos with a theme - COLORS. To start, I choose GREEN for Monday.

"Green is the prime color of the world,
and that from which its loveliness arises."
- Pedro Calderon de la Barca

The Green Sepal

A sepal remained after all the petals of a gumamela (hibiscus) fell off.
"Never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness,
but come down into the green valleys of silliness."
- Ludwig Wittgenstein

The pointer
This is one of the photos that was erased when I forced to reformat my netbook. Good thing that there is still a copy of it in the memory card of my SLR.

Can you guess the color for tomorrow's challenge?
