The idea of happiness

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.” – Groucho Marx Note: This digital photo, along with my other files of aerial shoot Boracay in 2010 would be wiped out during the flash flood (June 29, 2011) that damaged our home, my external hard drive, and my personal mementos, including my baby albums and old photos of which I have no copies left  (film). Then again, life goes on. And I am still smiling. But I need to visit Boracay again. To view my lost Boracay files, click here. Advertisements

Majestic Mayon

The majestic Mayon was a candidate of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2008 (did not make it to the top 25 and gave way to our Puerto Princesa’s Underground River) and considered to be one of the world’s most perfectly formed volcanoes.

I was lucky to have been flown above the dangerously beautiful crater and be able to share my images in publications.
