In Memory of Summer

While summer has barely started in other parts of the world, ours has already ended and we’re off to rainy, stormy, floody days again.  If not for the insane heat, I would love it to be summer all over again; head for the beach and stop caring if I’ll ever get my normal skin color back and be rid of this post-beach look that I’ve got going on.

In memoriam, I just thought to share some photos of a wonderful summer (which kind of triggers memories from 2011 😉 )

Macro shot using a reverse ring because I don’t have money for the real lens. Resourcefulness! 😀

Macro shot (again) 😀

A very ‘interestingly’ shaped flower spotted in the Timmangtang Rock (Ilocos) area

An orchid in a resto near Fort Ilocandia

My mother’s favorite distraction, her little garden.

Drizzling at odd hours of the day remind us that summer is almost over 😦

And we’re thankful for the summer rains because it drowns the blazing heat of the sun

Reminds us not only of summer but of simple times when we just chase after and catch dragonflies. The days of youth!

The Lunar Project: December

The year 2011 has drawn to a close and my (very convenient) Lunar Project as well. I took the January photo using my brother-in-law’s Canon EOS and finally bought myself a Nikon d3100 as a post-Valentine’s gift.

As 2011 ended, I chose this photo to symbolize the new life that each of us will embark on in 2012.

Thank you to everyone who dropped by and followed this humble blog. It was a joy interacting with people from around the globe. God bless you and your family.

The Lunar Project: November

I’ve always wanted to try macro photography but it’s really expensive to buy a macro lens. In the meantime, the reverse ring is the best alternative to the real thing but I must say, it takes patience (lots of it!) to use this thing.

I’ve tried it on rose buds and the minutest weeds I can find in our yard but this is the first time I’ve tried it on an insect. I still have a long way to go but I’m really happy with this little accomplishment.
