Chasing my colors

Mindanao Art 2021 sneak peek

I went out and headed to Poblacion today, which held the Mindanao Art Exhibit 2021, a gathering of talented artists all over Mindanao. Stunning artworks to view all over two floors.

There are beautiful places in these islands that I do not particularly want to share, and have been hesitant to do so. These are serene spots you just want to preserve and protect yet at the same time you want others to feel what you went through.

Forever that excited girl who acts like a kid when skies transform into pretty colors and that golden ball dips and winks in the horizon. I forget everything else. ⁣ ⁣ 📷 My pic taken by Chef Ann Austria [ Sunset, Boracay 12.13.2019 ]⁣ ⁣

Super Worm Moon March 22 2019 by Jojie Alcantara

Super Worm Moon 2019

Selenophilia is a love of the moon. I love gazing at its beauty wherever I travel. I admit I tend to do crazy stuff influenced by the lunar cycle (menstrual phase in disguise). I have a strange affinity with this night beacon during bouts of insomnia. Tonight from our porch, I basked in the glow of the full Worm Moon while capturing its mystic serenity. It teaches us to learn from past mistakes and move forward to new beginnings, like tidal ebbs and flows. How about you? Are you willing to let go of your past? :- 03.22.2019 © Jojie Alcantara #FullWormMoon# #newbeginnings

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

When kids stay positive

“Children are happy because they don’t have a file in their minds called “All the Things That Could Go Wrong.”― Marianne Williamson

Gone to sea

“Don’t take anything for granted, because one minute it can be there and the next minute it can’t, and it happens so quick. When the negative stuff comes around, just let it go. It all leads to the positive as long as you keep a positive attitude. Enjoy everything you get. That’s one of the most important things in life, is really appreciating it because we only get to do this once and it’s not for a long time.” ~Jay Moriarity, surfer
