Pictures

PICTURES. I always remind my kids that in times of disasters like fire, first priority to secure are documents such as birth certificates, diplomas etc. which are already packed in one foldercase. Next are pictures. Told them they can leave everything except pictures, these are visual records of our existence, our personal history in photos. You may never retrieve nor reproduce those memoir when they are destroyed specially by fire. Let everything be burnt but not our pictures. During yesterdays fire that almost hit my Mother's house these pictures are the first ones we saved and some few clothings, then we locked up the house and waited. Praise God that my Mother's house was spared but our hearts goes to those who were not able to save anything except what they are wearing.

Where Is Everybody

Using #2 tips of photo composition by Steve McCurry that is using "leading lines" that will lead the eyes to the picture, with just my Samsung Note Smart Phone, I took this rather eerie scene from our canteen that showed nobody was eating in the picture. Then I was able to highlight those rows of chairs in the foreground and the rows of lighting fixtures above.

An Exciting Journey Begins


With my Canon EOS80D, I am embarking on a journey of exciting photography.  Capturing images of life, stories and happenings.  I've always been wanting to own one and my wife gifted me with one during my last year birthday, so greatfull! See more pictures to come as I go through the process of mastering the art of photography.
