On Taking Pictures

>> Thursday, June 23, 2011

I've always believed that taking pictures is more than pointing and shooting your camera. For when you take photographs, you take part in that subject's immortality. Ever since, I've considered my purpose.

A friend of mine took a break and had his vacation in Cambodia last May. Recently, he changed his profile pic in FB.

Ako: Sino sila?
Siya: street children sa angkor wat. =)

He was posing together with 2 street kids; one only wearing a sweat shirt while the other half-naked, only with his shorts. And he (my friend) was all smile with them. I'm not sure about the kids.

At the back of my mind, "Why them? Todo smile ka pa? What's on your mind? What's your purpose?" I don't know what had happened at that moment, but I sure felt uncomfortable after he answered that they were street kids from that place. Naawa ako bigla sa kanila (kids).

I controlled myself and decided not to further interrogate him.

Oh well, as they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words." There could have been other words to describe the shot. And this is how I've described it. My friend has his words worthy of describing his shot too.

After 10 days, he changed his profile pic. This time with a baby, son of my colleague before.

(Sorry, I decided not to provide my friend's picture. Baka kasi kilala niyo siya. Hehe)


What Will?

It's Monday and it's a holiday!

So what happened to the "holiday economic issues" raised sometime in December? Not that I don't like holidays but I like it better if people will be CONSISTENT. Consistent with what they want and what they're doing. Where's your political will to pursue the change that you want then?

(BTW, I'm typing this at the office. HAHA)


I've finished reading Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff by Christopher Moore weeks ago and it was entertaining!

It's a novel about the Christ's missing years. The story was narrated by Levi Bar Alpheus called Biff. He was Christ's (or Joshua in the book) best friend. Biff was reincarnated to write his own version of the gospel. They took off for an adventure for Josh to learn how to be the Messiah. So He can liberate the people and the rest of the world.

It was a make-up history and story was arranged in a logical way that it follows the sequence of events in the bible.

Basta, maganda siya! It is worth my time! :D

Right now, I'm reading The Leader Who Had No Title by Robin Sharma. Even though I'm just on the first chapters, I'm already recommending it to you!


Why is it that when I'm about to write something, I lose my will to write? Tss.

Enjoy the rest of the day!
