The sun is beginning to set, and i hurriedly took this last photo from the other side. Did you notice the popular signage at the left side of the photo? Yes it’s Starbucks with a drive-thru.

At the base of the arches are newly-planted passion plants that are already flowering. Sooner, these crawling plants will cover the arches. I could almost imagine being greeted by these colorful flowers hanging from the arches as i pass by this pathway and when that day comes i will surely take photos of them again.

Lining up the pathway are lantana flowers. Aren’t they colorful and gorgeous?

Flowers are one of the most photographed things on earth. ¬†They could really brighten up anyone’s day. A single flower or an elaborate arrangement in our homes could really provide a happy feeling or mood.

Photo of these two islands were taken during during our island hopping in Boracay. I am not really sure about the names of these islands. Correct me if i’m wrong,¬†but i’ve read somewhere that they are called the Big and the Small Laurel Islands which are great sites for diving.

a word a week photo challenge: weather

We have been experiencing a rather cooler weather this month. The weather bureau had announced that this will go on till early February. The thermometer inside the house reads 25 degrees but it must be colder outside.

It’s almost always sunny here in my country and the cool weather from December to early February with peaks on January is something that we really enjoy and cherish because sooner it will be summer and temperatures may get as high as 39 degrees during the peak season.

We still experience some occasional drizzle especially early in the morning during the cold weather. The above photo was taken in my garden. The droplets of rain on leaves make for an exciting photo subject.

Well, enjoying the windy, cool and refreshing weather for now.

a word a week photo challenge: glitter

The holiday season brought so much glitter into our lives. A glitter is a sparkling light, a showy splendor, a burst of colors that gives off that wonderful luster like the ornaments, the fireworks, and the fairy lights.

As the holiday season ends, all the glitters fade away, the luster is gone but for me, there are glitters that do not fade. They are the glitters that provide happiness, may it be a thing, a pet that we cherish, or a person that we love. That is my own definition of GLITTER.

Who or what are the glitters in your life?

a word a week photo challenge: light

During sunset, only a soft light is visible on the Fernbrook Gardens, but it was an amazing scene and i love the colors of sunset.

during sunset

After waiting for some moments, the sun finally sets and it was dark. Looking like a glass castle full of lights, the view magically transformed and i could almost feel its radiance from afar.

at night time

Here’s how the Fernbrook Gardens look like up close.

… and here’s what’s going to greet you as soon as you enter the lobby, the golden fountain lined with mermaids and yes, it really glows as it is illuminated by lights from every corner.
