Finding silence

Quiet morning at Magsaysay Bay

Quiet morning at Magsaysay Bay

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence.  See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

~ Mother Teresa

Early morning sunrise shoot at Magsaysay Park.  This is the slum area and it gets quite dirty at midday. 

But when you come here before dawn,  everything looks peaceful and serene.  Fishermen go about their work at sunrise.   Morning joggers come in to exercise.

Photographers like me stay on the edge of the seawall, and get a whiff of the ocean smell, while waiting for that one capture that will send us home smiling.
