April 6 – 12
Though it wasn’t the best situation that I returned and visited my country of birth (Philippines), nevertheless I forced myself to take pictures. My heart was heavy and heartbroken due to the passing of my brother, Mark. However, photography was one of the outlets to vent my feelings. Amidst my sorrow, I still soaked in the amazing mirage of ironic scenes and images presented before me as I was riding around Manila Manila. I wished I had taken more pictures but those were the only ones I could muster in my grieving state.
I just loved that purple umbrella and how it contrasted with the darkness.
Manila American Cemetary – what an awesome place to reflect on the sacrifices of the soldiers who fought in WW II. The white crosses seemed to extend to eternity.
More crosses with the Bonifacio Global City in the background
How I loved these Star Apples!!! I haven’t eaten them in 14 years!
Loved the colors
Where else can you find a scene like this?

Always a cellphone in hand, ready to text

What could she be thinking? I love moments of reflection.
