Look up! Look down! Look around you and see things in a different angle, you’d find that some things are best seen at a distance or best observed from every angle. Some may appear different as what they really are. Explore and be mesmerized!

One fine day in Hong Kong!
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.
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. This photo was taken on a spontaneous day trip to Tagaytay. Sometimes unplanned trips have the best surprises! These were taken from our trip to Boracay last 2011. It was indeed a memorable one. You can do just about anything on the sand.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”
Inspiration 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. Taking 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.
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.
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.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Half and Half.”
We have our own definitions of halves. We can view a glass as half-full or half-empty. We can divide a landscape into land and sky or land and water. Dividing in half means cutting in parts, it means sharing the same scene to form a picture or a portrait. It depicts sharing of modernity and preserving nature.
