Challenge yourself

“Above all challenge yourself. You may well surprise yourself at what strengths you have, what you can accomplish.” – Cecile Springer

Welcome 2014

“Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year—the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.” ― Peggy Toney Horton

Calm

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ~ Rachel Carson Shot at sunrise with a tripod in Punta Dumalag View more of my sunrise images in the Turtle Sanctuary here

Imagine, create, deliver

At age 2, I was scribbling on walls, on my Dad’s books, writing or sketching on any paper I can get hold of. I started doodling, creating storybook sketches conjured from an imaginative young mind. I would draw, color, paint. I lived a life of curiosity, reading books at night while my parents propped me up on a stack of pillows during asthma attacks.

Dream and believe

“We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing”. ~ Louisa May Alcott My sunrise shoot in Punta Dumalag, Davao City Special thanks to Anne for this pose under the heat of the sun. Shots were taken with an Olympus Pen EPL-3, using built-in art filter, no post processing adjustments

Celebrate the simple life

“Each day, awakening, are we asked to paint the sky blue? Need we coax the sun to rise or flowers to bloom? Need we teach birds to sing, or children to laugh, or lovers to kiss? No, though we think the world imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. We are asked only to appreciate them, and to show appreciation by living in peaceful harmony amidst them. The Creator does not ask that we create a perfect world; He asks that we celebrate it.” ~Robert Brault Punta Dumalag’s Turtle Sanctuary, Davao City Photography, Jojie Alcantara
