Did you know that you are the reason?

This morning this song really have sinked in to my heart again. I was again reminded of the unconditional love that He alone can give to each one of us. We are the very reason why He give up on His life, and He is the very good reason that we live. Thank you Father!

As little children
We would dream of Christmas morn
and all our gifts and toys
We knew we'd find
But we never realized
A baby born one blessed night
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives

We are the reason
That He gave His life
We are the reason
Jesus suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live

As the years went by
We learned more of our gifts
And giving of ourselves
And what that means
On a dark and cloudy day
A man hung dying in the rain
because of love, because of love because of love

We are the reason
That He gave His life
We are the reason
Jesus suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live

everytime I see the Cross I'm reminded
that He gave His life for you and me

We are the reason
That He gave His life
We are the reason
Jesus suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live

We are the reason
But He is the reason we lived

Thank you my Jesus(Thank you my Jesus)
We thank you Lord my Jesus
We thank your for dying for my sins
Oh Lord, we thank you my Jesus
Thank you, thank you

Your worthy to be praised, Your worthy to be praised
Glorify, glorify your name,

We glorify your name

The Ring

Remembering the day I said yes in front of the church crowd. The ring that opens a new beginning, a new hope, a new perspective and a new journey to life.

He who plants a tree, plants hope.

Taken from my compact digicam since my dslr's battery got emptied during our second day at anawangin where there is no electricity. I was just playing with levels and saturation and thought of sharing it here.

Swing Away

An amazing view. A relaxing place. A peaceful living. A swing for life. A photographer’s haven.

Swinging in front of this mystical cove with a stretch of off white sand, the crystal clear water, the fresh air and the green scenery got nothing to ask for. It creates a peaceful mind and a joyful heart while enjoying God's amazing crafts.

November 28, 2009: One Day - A PiPho year end event

A one day access pass to the country's prime cityscapes brought to us by Ayala Land in partnership with Pinoy Photography Organization. The event was open to all Pipho members. On the spot photo contest was held with a theme: There's land, there's ayala land, and a lot of freebies and raffles...I won a tenba shoulder bag, just in time i thought of changing my bag and here comes the tenba bag for free...thank you!

I had fun shooting at ayala ave & global city, though tiring but it was a great oppurtunity to shoot on one of the heavily guarded cityscapes in manila. Thank you Pipho and ayala for a trully wonderful event.

December 12-13 2009: The mystical cove - Anawangin

Finally we’ve been to Anawangin, it was a post wedding anniversary celebration. I’ve been planning to go there since april of this year and finally, before the year ends, it was granted. My sister persuaded me to go with us with this trip.

We arrived at San Antonio Zambales 2:30 am, a 3 hours drive from manila. It was too early we were expecting to arrived around 4:00 am. We were waiting for the market to open, before heading to pundaquit for the boat ride to anawangin. We stayed outside the police headquarters. It was cold outside, the reason why I had colds through out the trip.

Around 6:00 am we were already at brgy. pundaquit waiting for our boat ride to anawangin. Pundaquit is 20-30 minutes trike from San Antonio. The water was calm, and the weather was fine. Finally around 7:00 am we had our first step at the mystical cove of anawangin. We were fascinated by its natural beauty. A pristine cove with an off white beach front line up with pine trees. Pine trees? Yes. How did they end up there?

There were almost 10 groups when we arrived and a few more on the other side. During the day there were still a lot of campers coming in but it was not that crowded.

We started our day, by setting up our tent. Right after the tent was up, was finally our time to enjoy the place. Picture…picture..picture.

Take a short trek to the mountain and you will see its breathtaking view from the top. The 200 pesos fee for the guide and scary climb was worthy. It was a 15 minutes trek up there.
Beyond the pine trees is a lake that meets the see on the left side.

Enjoyed the crystal clear water, we’ve noticed that while where swimming you can see the fishes around you. While swimming, remind yourself to take a bunch of care. Anawangin cove have several drowning incident, don’t swim on the left side of the beach they have identified it as a danger zone.

During the night, the place was lit up by bonfires by the campers. There is no electricity in the place, its back to basic; there is only toilet, a dressing room and a puso. You can also hear the wind breeze as if there’s a storm coming.
The next day, for the second time around, since we loved the view from the top, we took the short trek again this time without a guide. We stayed there for about 30 minutes, just enjoying the peaceful place and the breathtaking view away from the crowd.

9:00 am when we left anawangin and head to the nearby capones island. It was a 20 minutes boat ride from anawangin. When we left anawangin, the water was very calm, but as we get closer to capones island, the boat ride was becoming rough which scared us thanks god we arrived safely.
It’s a rocky island with moderate waves. Another breathtaking views here, especially if you reach the top of the light house. We didn’t stay longer here, we just took our picture then head to pundaquit, along the way was a strong wind and moderate waves even the boatmen was surprise with the strong wind, thanks god we arrived safely.

This is really a nice place. A heaven, a paradise whatever you describe it bottom line is it’s really a very nice place. I just hope that, as we enjoy its beauty, let as all be a good steward of God’s workmanship. Let us keep anawangin clean and green. Please do not left anything but footsteps.

December 09 2009: HS - Mayla

One boring afternoon when my cousin mayla came in to our house asking me to help her do her make up for the upcomming school party. I pleasurably did, and ofcourse took my gear plus a kumot for background and have her snaps.

December 09 2009: Lets Celebrate

To celebrate our 1st yr anniversary, was just a simple dine out at Fridays. A porky dinner and fresh juices.

With no one to capture our moment, except by putting our cam on a self timer mode.

Got this flower from mr.z. Thank you!
We are looking forward of our Anawangin trip this weekend as a post wedding anniversary celebration.

December 08 2009: Welcome Aboard!

It’s my day 1 here @, decided to have this account exclusively for my pursuit of photography. I do hope I could make my best at this blog since im having a hard time maintaining a real active one.

I’m on my 8th months of pursuing self study photography. It started when my hubby showed his interest in photography and finally gets his entry level dslr. Along the way, I found my self hooked in photography and grabbing my hubby's dslr almost everyday for a self study session along with the manual, my lapytopy and my reliable net connection. Eventually it was me who fall in love with photography. For 8th months now, I’ve been exposed to several photoshoot with a group or by myself trying to improve my photography. With this blog in mind, i do hope to see my journey in this field: from a novice photographer to a hopefully professional photographer.
Looking forward of a good input here.

Welcome aboard!
