Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Creepy.”

I remember coming to this area to watch a play, though this is not the picture of the Rajah Sulayman Theater in Fort Santiago. The place looked like a ruins but it is used as a venue for performances. It was particularly creepy because it was nighttime when we watched but definitely did set the mood for the theme of the play. Built during the Spanish era, the architectures in Intramuros are very different from today. This walled city has gone through a massive history but some structures have not been preserved well. It is still a good place to walk about, to find structures built about 300 years ago.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beneath Your Feet

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Beneath Your Feet.”

Wherever our footsteps may take us, it will be a meaningful journey depending on our attitude and perspective at that time. At times, looking back at the photographs, we’d be able to see footprints of happiness and discover marks of good memories beneath our feet.  20140426_151514 This photo was taken on a spontaneous day trip to Tagaytay. Sometimes unplanned trips have the best surprises! IMG_1099 IMG_1108 IMG_0988These were taken from our trip to Boracay last 2011. It was indeed a memorable one. You can do just about anything on the sand.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”

IMG_6283Inspiration comes naturally, I feel it upon looking up to the sky and the trees, the budding of the cherry blossoms, the relaxing view and fresh air. 20140824_140246 20140824_141448Taking walks is a way to draw some inspiration. I am re-energized whenever I get the chance to take a walk. It doesn’t matter if it’s a stroll in the park (or in the mall – since this is more common in our country) or in the school grounds, I get a system reboot and my mind clears with this activity. It’s both physical and mental exercise. Going out of town is a nice get-away from mundane lifestyle. It is a great opportunity to unwind and see things in a different perspective.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Close Up.”

Some details are more vivid when we look at them up close. The intricate lines and shades of nature are shown in focus and we are again amazed by these wonderful creations. The closer we get to the subject, the more we are able to see the minute traces that make up the image. 20140824_153216 20140824_15251620140517_160418

This is the project I’ve been working on this past week. I have began making origami jewelries and it’s been fun! I have made about 50 pairs of earrings and been experimenting on the designs. Sometimes, things are more vibrant when in focus.
