This little boy making faces at me while I was taking his photo is Marty and is fondly called by her mom and mommyla and daddylo as Eloy. I haven’t asked them though what caused them to give them that pet name. Eloy and her mom went with us on a weekend last week and Eloy was instantly the darling of the crowd.
He was so hyper. Did not ever complain even for once.
In this photo, he reminds me of the movie – Baby’s Day Out!
This post is connected with Happiness Is…but when I checked out the site, the last entry was still in May. Somehow it will be up again soon but even if it won’t I will try to keep posting photos of things that brings me happiness and to the people around me.
It’s been awhile since I enjoyed clicking the shutter of a camera. Asked me why, because my camera (CANON IXUS 120is) died a premature death last December. I haven’t had it checked but I can guess there’s a big damage so I never mind about it. Someone asked me if he can check it, so tomorrow if I will not forget to carry the camera then Sir Q will check it up.
This post will not be about the broken camera. But this is about some of the photos I took during an overnight retreat at Midway Beach Resort at INitao, Misamis Oriental. It’s there that particular Sunday I experienced my first banana boat ride. The photos are not of the banana boat ride but of motion caught.
They are not perfect shots I know but with Esther’s point and shoot camera (Canon) I so like the result. I am still saving up for a studier camera and I hope I can buy one first week of April.
Thanks to my friend Esther for allowing me to use her camera as much as I can that day. ^^
Thanks also to the presidents of the IT and BSBA club of Mindanao Sanitarium and Hospital College for inviting me as one of the chaperons in that activity.

Yesterday afternoon, I went to the city after work. The sun was still high that the view of the sky from the post office looks glorious amidst the complexity site of wire and ends. As I often mentioned, I love sky photos. I always feel that light tug in my heart when I behold the vastness of the skies. When I look up, It makes me forget that am thinking of unhappy thoughts or many worldly cares.
Here’s a couple of shots made yesterday afternoon:
I just love the blue skies with it’s fluffy white clouds. I always pride the sunny weather of the Philippines but at times I really don’t enjoy the sun on my skin.
Many times I tag myself as a tech dumbo. I am really having a hard time internalizing stuff with codes. Later in life, I guess I have to hire someone to do all the tech stuff for me. One how has knowledge on the software information that comes to his desk including this auto collision estimating software that just came out of the market. I guess this is the reason why I have stick to free themes for my blog because I cannot tweak even one code to make a theme that reflects what I would really like. I know also that it is okey to ask friends, but I get a headache with online instruction. I want a one on one demonstration with someone who is really knowledgeable with codes stuff. CSS? Oh don’t ask me that. I’ll have a headache soon. I have a low tolerance on headache so I need someone who can teach me patiently and one who can simply the codes for me to catch up at least the basic.
By the way, here are some of my sky shots the past week:
She is my daughter. Don’t you think she’s beautiful? Oh in spite of her face that is full of irritating pimples (acne like) she will always be beautiful to me.
A photo taken last Christmas holiday. This was a few days after Christmas.
I love shady places especially if the temperature is high. Yesterday i was out at a friend’s home and i like their front part of the house because there were several big and tall trees that it shaded their veranda.
I wish I am a bird perched on top this tree. When I am, for sure I am not perspiring. ^^
This oil painting art hanged in the receiving room always get my attention. I love the green in it. For sure this is a bard and i can imagine the day is cloudy and i would love to lay down on the grass (face up) and paint a farm in the sky. Don’t you love the green in it? Looks so real.
NOTE: all photos are mine and not up for stealing. please ask permission or link back you like to use them. Thank you.
