The Corral: Scale and Observation

Using the scale and observation, you always use the focal points of your camera. Observing first the scene before pressing the shutter makes difference. The corral stone became larger and it is the primary subject of the Point-of-view.

You may also apply in scale and observation, the Rule of Thirds.

Home: Where your heart lives within.

Home is less tangible than your house.

I’ve been practicing Real Estate Brokerage since year 2012 and lots of people I have met and most of them are my clients.

Some of them are looking for a house near where they are working for. Some of them are looking for a getaway home or a vacation home. And most of them are looking for a great place to live for their families and where they wanted their children to grow. It’s kind of what they want according to their environmental needs of life. Some of them are looking for a mansion, some condominiums and some are villas.

One day I am walking along the street, searching of what is really the meaning of a HOME. I took some photos and scenes in the streets, people walking in the pedestrian lanes, and took photos on Street and Creek Dwellers in Manila. It’s the other side of the story of what is really a home for individual person.

Home is a state of mind. It’s not what you wear, what are the things inside your house. It’s not how expensive you bought your mansion. It’s not how you are near to your workplace. It’s not the view of an old oak tree at your window.

A home is a State of Mind. Where your heart lives with it. Where your families have harmonious relationships. Where you eat your meal together and sharing stories from your workplace. A home is where you sleep together. A home where you have unconditional love NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. It’s where your faith and trust to your family.

Home is elusive. When we think about this word, we might picture different physical locations. And while home is often found on a map, it can also be less tangible: a loved one, a state of mind.

When there is energy, happiness and love. That’s a truly home is.

 

Solitude : Alone and Happy

The Wilderness of Life by Ryan Bonn Duadua

During the time of solitude, you value your thoughts, refresh what are the important things and throw the wasted memories in life. As we go on in our daily task in life, we always have wilderness in life.

Sometimes it is a nightmare, happiness or only a dream. No matter what it is, it depends on the quality of being alone and happy.

Just always remember, “The Wilderness holds answers to more questions than we have yet learned to ask.” – Nancy Wynne Newhall

Always be happy and great!

 

Eternal Bliss

Our Lady of Rosary of Manaoag, Pangasinan PH

Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag, the healing shrine in the heart of Luzon. Pilgrims came to seek healing. A religious iconic church which often prayers are said to be done. This church is a good place to pray for your great request and needs.

In this place, nothing is more important than reconnecting our eternal bliss with our Creator. I must go beyond the state of mind of spiritual bliss.

As I pray sincerely, it brings me satisfaction and pure bliss in my daily life.

Water: Driving force of life

A travel to Balicasag Island with my wife

I took this photo last April 2011 in Panglao, Bohol. Almost 5 years already.

As we sail to BALICASAG ISLAND in Bohol, we never know what is coming in this body of water, a small wave or a big one. But we trust our sailor because he is more experience than us. He knows how to maneuver the boat fluently even there is a big wave.

I always remember that water is a driving force of nature. It creates life and abundance that leave you fulfillment in life.

Always remember, we all have the same wind that blows on us all. It could be a wind of failures, political, etc. What matters is how we set the sail. How we focus on our dreams. How we set the sail to our goals in life. How deeper we believe on our dreams.

It is how we organize our plans to make all things done.

Water is part of our lives. A man can learn so many things.

 

Street: Different stories of life

Street and Establishing shots

I just want to know who you are, what your uniqueness is and what your story is.

Hundreds of passersby in this street in Antipolo City, many reasons why they cross this street. Many visit the church of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage of Antipolo (Nuestra Señora de la Paz y del Buen Viaje) and some passed by.

As I go along and watched every person in this street, I notice that we have different stories in life. A Street filled with mystery and inspirations. After taking this photo, I stop in a “Carinderia”, an eatery near the church. The person who served my lunch has different story. The person who cooked the delicious DINUGUAN and BICOL Express has his own story.

Every person walked and drive pass in the eatery have their own story. The woman that selling a “Sampaguita lace” have her own story. The students, who are laughing, have their different stories.

Pilgrimage during the Holy Friday, customarily spend the night travelling on foot to Antipolo, where they are greeted at the shrine with a dawn mass have their own story.

There are series of events in life that lead us to great experiences. Failures, nightmares, or even achievements. No matter what it is, we create our own story, story of crossing every street in our lives, meeting new people that with dreams and sharing their life to you. What matters is you create your own story, a life with a reason and a season of love and happiness that bring you joy in every decision you make while walking in the street of life.

What is your own story in the street? It’s now your turn to share.
