These unbelievable past few days

Please accept my apologies for not having a photo to accompany this post. The past few days have been very heady for me. First, I've got an upcoming section feature and a spotlight article on a magazine for two issues in a row (sorry, can't divulge the name of the magazine yet).T hen, I just got word from another magazine interested in featuring one of my images. (thank you Lord!)

But the most mind-boggling thing is this -- just returned from a dinner with one of my closest buddies and guess what?H e's going to get hitched come December and hands down, I'm going to be the photog to cover the wedding. Hmmm, for the longest time, I've been really keeping my hands off wedding coverages because I feel it's not my forte and the pressure to produce the best results is really something else. But what wouldn't I do for a very good friend? I'm honored and flattered to be part of your most special day, bro. To be entrusted with documenting it in pictures is kinda mind-boggling to me right now, but thanks for the faith and congrats, I'll certainly do my very best.

bro lino, i wouldn't miss it for anything. see you there!

bro erick, naku, i can feel the pressure na lalo na't matalik kong kaibigan itong parang kliyente ko, hahaha. i think either of two things lang ito: me nakitang potential ito o magaling lang ako mambola :-))

dom, thanks bro! medyo nakaka-tuliro lang kasi nagsunod-sunod. but i'm not complaining :-) will let you know when the magazine/s come out.

naku arlene, i mistook you for joanne, hahaha. sorry for the miscue. my apologies.

joanne, me either, can't wait for the wedding (naks, parang ako ang ikakasal, hahaha). patay ako sa kaibigan ko if i botch this one, hahaha. regarding that workshop, hmmm, let me think about it. dunno if i'll make a good teacher. mas marami yata akong corny jokes (my friends will vouch for that, hehehe) kesa lessons to impart. but seriously, thank you for the words of encouragement.

seriously din, i don't know my skill level. all i know is that i love to shoot and tell stories. and i think i'm happy to know i'm making readers like you smile and spreading a bit of happiness all around.
