We are the change that we seek

 “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” ~ Barack Obama Early morning walk and a sunrise shoot.  Hypnotized by the swirl of red-orange tones and yellow skies,  I stepped lower with my tripod and reached down the waves, trying to capture the solitude of the replica of the Little Mermaid.  At break of dawn, people started to arrive in the park, jogging, picnicking, doing aerobics, walking.   She will be a little less lonely, for someone is bound to notice her. But in her misfortune and enchanted state, she continues to sit there, waiting. Baywalk, Times Beach, Matina, Davao City
