About Me

My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

Its a once in a lifetime birthday celebration for one of the elders. You can only celebrate it if you have reached a ripe old age (90-100+). We were on our way back from shooting the sunrise in the terraces when we chanced upon this. It took a while before the buffalo feel, and the images I got are too gory.
