Weekend Nature Escapade

I spent the weekend chasing waterfalls with my friend. Here are some shots from our escapade.

All photos were taken using my Samsung S5 phone. 🙂

The Sunrise Series

I love taking photos of sunrise. I love looking at the sky as it changes colors. I have yet to see a more beautiful thing in my life. To me, sunrise is the most beautiful thing.

I took these photos yesterday and I wanted to share it to the world. I hope you enjoy it.

I don't know these people but I was too lazy to leave the tent so I took this photo instead.

I may not know them but I would like to thank them for adding beauty to this photo.

This is my favorite. I have never seen the sky in this color before.

Sunset In The Province

Did I already tell you how I get crazy about things I find fascinating? Yeah?! Well, if you’re already fed up by the sunrise photos, here’s the sunset.

Sunset in the province. I find it both beautiful and sad.

Sunset and sugarcanes. I know it's not visible enough but the foreground is a sugarcane field. I miss those days long ago when life is so simple and the only that bothers me at the end of each day is how to explain my scratches and bruises to my parents after playing in the fields the whole day. Life was so much easier back then.

The first mountains I climbed.

This is where I grew up. This is where I started to dream.

A Little Crazy About Sunrise

I am a bit crazy about sunrise (and sunsets). In fact, I am a bit crazy about everything I find beautiful and fascinating.

Although I have a DSLR camera, I haven’t really been practicing lately. These photos were taken using Samsung S5 (no filters added). I must admit I am amazed by S5’s photo quality which I did not really expect. I still love Sony but S5 is starting to grow on me. ♡♡♡

Here's the other photo. One thing I wish S5 has is the panorama shot (which my old Xperia has). I would love to take panorama shots on this phone but...

Tañon strait. Taken between the Islands of Negros and Cebu. I was bored and noticed the sunrise so I decided to take photos instead.

I have a lot more to share if you’re not annoyed enough. If this app keeps up, I might finally be able to update this blog more. ☆♡☆♡☆

A Little bit of everything

I know, it sounds totally pretentious to be so positive all the time. Days are not always sunny. You don’t always get what you want in life. It’s not always a happy, happy day. Some days are just the worst. Some days you’re just so down and everything that can go wrong seemed to go wrong and you can’t see an end in sight. Not a good feeling. You can cry and bawl if you want and nobody should blame or judge you. They’re not going through what you are going through afterall.

I do feel those days. And whenever I am in those moments, I think of the many good things I have in life and I feel better. I always believe that having a positive attitude is a choice. It doesn’t mean you are not allowed to be sad, you are human afterall and sadness is a natural emotion, a natural reaction to a situation. It only means you do not dwell in sadness and find a way to get out of your predicament. Moving on, I believe, is also a choice.

There have been moments when I would feel that things are not going the way it should be and I feel helpless. But believe it or not, I just tell myself that God will provide for my needs and God will make a way for me and things just work out fine. I don’t know how this happens really. I don’t understand it to be honest. I often just close my eyes and whisper a prayer, “Lord, you know what’s in my heart and you know what is good for me…” and things just go the way it should be. I mean, how can I not trust that there is a God when I have seen this happen to me so many times before.

This is why I can still find a way to smile and think of positive things no matter how dire the situation gets. I have a lot to be thankful for. I always say I do not have everything I want in life but I only have to take a minute to know that I have what I need. I have bits and pieces of the world that I want and those bits and pieces make up my little piece of heaven. They are not muh to the world but these little pieces are enough for me. I am thankful for what I have. I am blessed to have them.

I Don’t Have A Heart.

I’ve lost my heart a long time ago. I don’t have most of it anymore. I broke it into pieces and gave it away.

Funny but I noticed that the more I give away the pieces, the bigger it seemed to get. I mean, I’ve given away so much but I still have some pieces left. I always have pieces left. It makes me wonder how many million pieces it broke into.

Five years ago I left a part of my heart somewhere in Region XI. I lived for years with only part of my heart until two years ago when I “accidentally” left a huge chunk somewhere in the cold mountains of northern Luzon. Now I’m not sure where most of it are but I think I left it somewhere around here…

Looks familiar?

It’s a place known for this…

Over the years, as I slowly give pieces of my heart away I realized something. When you give out pieces of your heart, it doesn’t make it broken or less of a heart. In fact, the more pieces you give away the bigger it seemed to get. I’m not sure how this works but I don’t think this follows any scientific principles. It’s probably math right? I don’t understand math that much and only math gives me this queasy, nauseous feeling and this feels like math to me.

So now my heart is everywhere. Blown by the very same wind that brought me to the places I have loved without reserve and to the people who got some of the pieces although I distinctly remember not giving them any.

My heart is gone. It now belongs to the world. It belong to the places I’ve been to and the people I met along the way. Or at least most of it. I still have some pieces left, would you like one?
