“Memory is very important, the memory of each photo taken, flowing at the same speed as the event. During the work, you have to be sure that you haven’t left any holes, that you’ve captured everything, because afterwards it will be too late.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
“We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness”. – Anonymous

“A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them.” ~ Leonard Louis Levinson Morning Has Broken © Jojie Alcantara 2010 Took images of a glorious sunrise overlooking Davao and Samal Island at 5am from a high elevation in Mountain Haven, right after day one of our workshop back in June 2010. The weather was perfect, the sky marked with attractive cloud patterns in soft orange hues. This photo was taken straight from the cam, and only resized and watermarked. I used a Canon 7D.
“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” ~ e.e.cummings
