I used to loathe the stoplight, when my momentum as a traveler is cut, and I am forced to endure seconds of immobility. But lately, I've grown to dislike less these pauses, as they allow me to see the details amidst the daily, dizzying blur, catch my breath, and zoom on with a second wind.

(PS- ...and stoplights also allow me to tinker with my new toy which took this shot =])

Litratong Pinoy: MALAMBOT (Soft)

Tila mga mananayaw ng karagatan ang mga dikyang ito, isa sa mga tampok na lamang dagat sa Manila Ocean Park. Ang kanilang nakabibighaning kagandahan ay napupuluputan naman ng kakaibang kamandag. Ibayong ingat ang paalala sa ating lahat- nilalang na dapat hanggang tingin lamang tayo.


They are the ocean's dancers, one of the featured creatures at the Manila Ocean Park. Their enchanting beauty is embraced by a most unusual venom. Extreme care is advised to everyone; it is one of those entities better admired from afar, sans touching.

Amidst the cacophony of life's distractions and the din of beauty that can be overwhelming yet empty, here's to another year of just Being.


My camera may have found its way to another pair of hands but the eye behind it will find ways to document this wonderful ride =]
