This VSCO setup seems to work best for me in sharing all my photos.
Constant reflection is an important practice. Here’s some of the reminders I collected in January:
I remember the first time I realised why people take so long staring at photos displayed in museums. I can’t remember what I was looking at, but I can still recall the sensation of emotions and thoughts mingling. There is something unique and fascinating about looking at the brush strokes and the colors blending together. The particular beauty of focusing on individual sections of the painting, then stepping away from the artwork to appreciate the majesty of the whole. Also, when I look at paintings, my right brain seems to enter a trance of manufacturing words and words and poetry.
There’s also that similar sensation that I get when I look at photos. Maybe it’s why I really got into tumblr in high school. Photos can really capture a thousand words. Just the other day as I was skimming through photos from the past months, I saw this one. I took it while I was in the car and we were passing by these fields, on the way to a resort.
A few months ago, my friend and I decided to do something outside the usual Saturday morning routine. After breakfast, we rode a jeepney to Escolta and visited The Hub Make Lab and The Den (Map). Then, we walked through China Town under the heat of the sun to find the sea food place popularly known as Estero, aptly named for its location–right beside a tiny creek.
Waiting in traffic can be a little less miserable if we only knew how to look at the beauty hiding under what he hate so much.
