“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” ― Osho
Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. ~ Earl Nightingale Captured in 2006, in my journey to Iloilo (with famous photographers Rhonson Ng, Manny and Boboy Librodo) More images in my gallery of Unseen Iloilo
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross This old photo was one of my favorites, taken in Pearl Farm Beach Resort, Samal Island. She (Sharon) was one of the models for the resort’s brochure we were shooting. During one of the breaks, I asked her to pose for me playfully, and I disappeared behind her. She probably wondered where I went because I didn’t take a frontal shot.
