Practicing on how to focus.

Day 28: 11:00 PM

“We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.”

"Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted."

"The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough."

"Find the best in everybody. Just keep waiting no matter how long it takes. No one is all evil. Everybody has a good side, just keep waiting, it will come out."

"It’s not about how to achieve your dreams. It’s about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you."

This book is one of the many guides on how to truly live.

Day 27: 8:00 PM

The elixir of life.

Day 26: 1:30 PM

Refreshing, especially on a hot and humid day. Thirst-quenching.

Day 25: 9:25 AM

Two variations of peeking.

Day 24: 5:15 PM

This is like a tree's pocket, where it keeps handy-dandy things accessible.

A keeper of secret items.

Day 23: 10:00 AM


A tacky, silly, offensive, stupid and moronic way to handle problems.

Some would say it can be considered as graffiti writing, but then again the concept behind it (or rather the "issues") is, to me, rather unreasonable and superficial.

Day 22: 8:40 PM

Another picture of a "picture"- image made by Aris.

Thank you :)

Day 21: 9:12 PM

Dreamlike, the remembered image of an aspect of reality.

Day 20: 3:40 PM

Two kinds of prisons. Even just the idea of one makes me feel constricted.

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Day 19: 5:30 PM

Beaches are not all about sunshiny-colors. There's something about a stormy atmosphere that brings out emotions.

Day 18: 10:00 AM

Works found in a museum- the common made unusual and extraordinary. Context is everything.

Day 17: 9:00 PM

A lot of events are marked by candlelight, be it something celebratory such as a birthday, or something solemn like masses or silent marches.

I remember seeing a parade of torches before going to the party where I took this picture. Same element, different contexts, much like the others (water, air and earth).

Day 16: 5:35 PM

Again 2 pictures- downloading and experimenting with the apps for iPhone is addicting.

Fisheye lens always make me think: do fish really see the world this way?

Doors: exits and entrances leading to elsewhere.

Day 15: 1:00 AM

When life gives you lemons, enjoy them with something like paella.

Day 14: 4:30 PM

I know it's more than 1 photo- I just couldn't resist.

Much like having different takes on a single image, we also have many, many perspectives to each event or experience in our lives.

Day 13: 9:30 PM

Experimenting with some applications here, I need to practice.

I remember the movie Pleasantville- such a wonderful movie. What if that was how you saw the world?

Monday, March 15, 2010

Day 12: 11:00 PM

Big shoes to fill in.

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Day 11: 1:55 PM

Humorous painting, what a way to depict a painful procedure (look especially at the boy praying, he's probably next).

(A picture of a picture- is it twice removed from the "truth" or two kinds of "truth?")

Day 10: 2:05 PM

Suspended animation.

Friday, March 12, 2010

Day 9: 12:04 PM

Puddles come and go, here for a brief moment before drying out.

A captured moment: a sequence of these consist life.

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Day 8: 10:30 PM

Nostalgic and sentimental, the sound is also pure and wonderful to hear.

Nothing like true vintage, classic stuff.

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Day 7: 7:40 PM

Thousands of thoughts, ideas, opinions, perspectives, emotions, and more all in one huge room. Dialogues, conversations, statements, slogans, descriptions, explanations which will endure for as long as the books' physical essence holds, and even then they will last in the minds of the readers.

Reminds me of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, about the "living books": people committing to memory the texts they want and love in order to preserve them.

Day 6:5:50 PM

Shadow play: almost touching but will never really come into contact with.

Monday, March 8, 2010

Day 5: 6:10 PM

Simulating a drunken haze: going into the bottle and off to tra-la-la land.

(A vortex or gateway to uninhibited places, if you will regret the journey afterwards is the question.)

Day 3 and 4

This time it was harder to pick only one per day from tons of worthy images.

I chose the first one because it took a lot of patience (and some stalking) to get this kind of shot. Now I know how determined and patient people shooting documentaries are.

The second is about permanence and majesty: old trees seem to radiate a certain aura.

Friday, March 5, 2010

Day 2: 5:00 PM

Contrast between life and death.

(Location can dictate whether you live or die.)

An enticing invitation to rest beneath its leaves.

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Day 1: 7:30 PM

Reminds me of metal petals (like that of a lotus) hovering over a pool.

(Water, the wonderful, refreshing, life-giving liquid, beats any other beverage. Thirst makes my eyes glance again and again upon the glass.)

A similarity observed: water and metal both have reflective properties.
