And The Journey Begins: A Series


Being able to take pictures is a gift. It is painting a scene. It is capturing random beautiful things. It is freezing moments. It is capturing the details of life around us. As my blog nears its second year of existence, I am starting a series of posts with photos. How are these posts going to be different from my regular posts? Let me count the ways:

1. Each post will contain only 1 photo.
2. The photo will be a bit bigger than those in the regular posts.
3. The title of the post will only be numbers. This is for no other reason than to keep track of the number of photos that I have posted in the series.
4. The post will not contain stories or explanation or any kind of lengthy texts. Each post will only have a short text, one or two lines maybe. I’ll leave to you, my readers, the talking about the picture if you want to. You may interpret the picture or make a story about it.

Why did I come up with this series? I am hoping that with this I will be “pushed” to take more pictures. And with this, I hope, will come new learnings in taking photographs and new realizations on the life that presents itself in front of my lens.

So wish me luck as my journeyβ€”painting a scene, capturing random beautiful things, freezing moments, and capturing details of life around usβ€”begins.

  11. My Uncle said that waray in Samar and Tacloban are a bit different. Hmm. May variety din pala yun. πŸ˜€ Hehe.

  12. nortehanon Aug 17th 2010

    Yes, magkaiba nga ang Waray ng Tacloban and Samar. And among the towns in Samar, meron ding mga pagkakaiba. But if you understand one of the varieties of Waray, easy na to understand all the varieties πŸ˜‰
