“When I was a child my mother said to me, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general. If you become a monk, you’ll be the pope.’ Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.” ― Pablo Picasso

Fishcages of Bislig City (I shot this on a late afternoon from a hill, click photo for bigger view )

I used to be a dancer who ended up as a writer who ended up as a painter who ended up as a photographer. I was bursting with so many dreams that a few times I sacrificed most to focus on a few.  Whatever we do in life, let’s strive to leave a positive mark and believe that our small role in society can make a difference.

Bislig is the capital of Surigao del Sur, and is laden with beautiful natural attractions like Tinuyan Falls (Mindanao’s little Niagara), Lake 77 and Hagonoy Island.
