Kulay Pasko

The headlines are maybe foreboding but whatever happens, Christmas will always come like a beacon shining bright. Now, as the very westernized jack-o-lanterns give way to the very Pinoy Parols, I figure that even though I have a lot of things I want to have and do, with the times, i just have to roll with it and be thankful for things I may have taken for granted. Blessings like friends, family, health. I guess I have to add my travels, photo assignments and photography milestones in the mix and i really have a lot to be grateful for. Let me thank all the readers of this blog as well for i'm a month away from celebrating 5 years of Lagalog. Without your support, I don't really know if i'd reach this milestone.

ah oo, dom. after halloween, mabilis na ang dating ng mga araw. before you know it, pasko na naman. dami rin naman akong nasa wishlist ko, at the same time, i'm appreciative of the fact that i'm alive and well to have those wishes :D

Paskow nah! hehehe. Cute nang mga lanterns na yan. People should also be grateful of what they have this christmas aside of thinking about what they're getting.

ei wulfriend. yeah, galing mo magspot ng shooting venue. well, that's true, we should be appreciative of other things than a bonus or gifts we're going to receive. while it's nice to be a recipient of presents, masaya ring makapagbigay ng kasiyahan sa iba na less fortunate sa atin :D

fernan, salamat for dropping by again. kakatuwa naman, you remembered me pa. naku, i don't know about the look up to me part but kung maka-inspire ako ng iba to take up something, to travel, to look at things in a different light, i guess this blog has served its purpose. more power din sayo.

I thank you for sharing with us your awesome photographs and travel experiences! I just discovered you but you are already my favorite.

By the way, do you give photography courses?

Cheers!

hi cathy, salamat for your words of encouragement. i really don't know what to say but thank you very very much.

i had invitations to give a seminar or two but nothing has yet come to fruition. maybe in time, i will.

It's going to be my 5th Christmas away from home. It's sad especially there's no Christmas here in the middle east :)
