FLIGHT OF THE ALBATROSS 

I always envy how birds can just soar freely into the horizon and visit exciting destinations without worrying about pricey plane tickets, uncomfortable seats, lost luggages or nasty flight attendants.  I on the other hand had to work around my limited vacation days at work and patiently await for dollar-saving deals before I can start packing my bags. How I wish I was a…

SHOT ON THE 4TH OF JULY

Yesterday the United States of America celebrated its Independence Day commemorating the day the 13 American colonies declared independence from the British empire. The highlight of this holiday is a festive fireworks display celebrated all over the country.  Luckily, I live 5 minutes walk to the beach where my home city’s firework showcase was to be held. It being a last minute decision I…

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Happy Holidays to everyone! By the way, that’s my dog Lily posing for me beside my Christmas tree. She can’t wait to open her gifts in a few hours. Hope everyone is safe and sound at home and with your loved ones.  May this season bring love and joy to you and your families.

FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY/ FONTAINE DE TOURNY

Today, I decided to feature my cover photo on this post to celebrate my page’s first year anniversary. This photo of the Fontaine de Tourny was taken during my trip to Quebec City, Canada in 2013. I love how the statues glisten under the fountain while the water carelessly sprinkles all around them. This has been an amazing twelve months since I launched my…

4th OF JULY

Today the United States of America is commemorating that fateful day in 1776 when thirteen American colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence and formed this great nation by declaring freedom from the British Empire. Being of Filipino descent, this date is also significant in my home country’s history as this commemorates the day the Philippines ceased to be a US territory and became an…

MORADA BAY

Morada Bay Beach Cafe in Islamorada, Florida was a pitstop during my drive home from a weekend of fun and sun in the island of Key West. This restaurant, which was highly recommended by a coworker, does not only serve delicious meals…it also offers a breathtaking view of the bay from your table. The tables, chairs and umbrellas are painted with bright colors providing…

ISLAND OF THE WINDS

The island of Mykonos in Greece is famously referred to as the island of the winds but in Greek mythology, it is also known as the location of the great battle between Zeus and the Titans as well as the site where Hercules killed the giants after luring them out of Mount Olympus. I visited Mykonos two years ago and fell in love with this…

FIRE FLOWERS

Fireworks always add a spark to holiday celebrations but oftentimes, they are the most difficult to capture especially  if you don’t have a tripod with you. Thankfully, the roofdeck of my friend’s condo had a ledge where I was able to rest my camera.  I took a lot of photos but this one turned out to be my favorite. Aside from the fireworks from…

I just launched this page last August 2015 and I am very pleased to have welcomed a number of new online friends who decided to follow my page. A lot of you…

MERRY CHRISTMAS

  I know this post is a day late…I was planning to post this photo yesterday but I got so busy preparing for a party at home that by the time the party was over I didn’t have the strength to sit up and write something. I couldn’t find a holiday themed photo so I decided to photograph my Christmas tree for this post….
