Monochrome. One Step At A Time


" There are no shortcuts to learning,

It takes time to grow, to mature
and be what you are meant to be..
It's one step at a time,
In God's timing."

Early in the morning
You wake me up
To renew my strength
To see the beauty of the world
To see the lighthouse from a distance
And hear You say
I Am watching nearby.

100th Day (My Confessions)

Three months and ten days have gone by since I started blogging and became a part of this phenomenon. Today is the 100th Day of this blog.

Photo Credit: From Adagio, http://nightsahara.blogspot.com/

I must confess I started blogging with a thought to just learn something new in life; to learn about the internet and to learn more about the world. I also want to share my interests and experiences in life through this blog.

Time flies so fast. My kids are growing up so fast and I feel like I have to cope up with the fast pace of life. I have pains and failures too but no need to elaborate.

This blog was an extra mile for me because I learned a lot. Technology nowadays also is moving faster than I thought it would ever be. To be honest, I don't know the trend (this so called "blog"). Not only that I don't know this trend, but also I don't even how to link and put a comment. I learned these things in the span of 100days that I have been blogging. It took me forever to post an entry and edit my photos including my name. I don't even know how to develop my site. However, this does not stop me from not creating entries that I hope were able to inspire people who read my previous posts... I'm glad I was able to manage maintaining a blog by doing research and reading other blogs.

Another thing that I would like to share to you is that I like photography. I'm not a photographer but I'm passionate about it. I just take pictures because I love nature. I am amazed with God's creation and I want it to share with you.

I don't know how to write well. Another confession that I want to share. I pray first before I post. God has been my inspiration for the span of 100 days that I have been blogging.


Happy Mothers Day to all the Mother's out there!
I'm sharing this with you..

SkyWatch. Summer Getaway, Part I


The full moon overshadowed us as we left before midnight,
on a trip to the province during the Holy Week. And became our light as we travel on a dark road.

Taken on April 7, 2009, South Expressway

It was a very bright night that I even saw clouds formation, the bright stars and constellation Big Dipper, looking up north I guess ( not sure). I was seated at the front seat. But I could not take a shot at it , as we were traveling so fast..

At dawn, upon arrival the golden sunrise welcomed us.
It was a nice feeling to be able to see the glow as it rises.

April 8, 2009, Camarines Norte

The trees( coconut) standing tall and graceful. Its fruit is delicious, the juice refreshing and good for the body. A country so blessed with its abundance ..

The colors of the clouds that day..

April 8, 2009, Camarines Norte

The clouds were friendly with the mountains? Maybe they know that I am passing by and sky watching.

The fields ready for the harvest ?


April 8, 2009, Camarines Norte

Arrival at final destination. On the first day and after we rested. My kids cant contained their excitement on their new found water sports.

Camsur Water Complex (Wakeboarding)

"Can you hold back the movements of the stars?
Are you able to restrain the Pleiades
or Orion?
Can you ensure the proper sequence of the seasons
or guide the constellation of the Bear with her cubs in heavens?
Do you know the laws of the universe
and how God rules the earth?. "

Job 38:31-33

What delightful day to see a rainbow and Mount Isarog together, an added attraction!

My daughter took the shot

That's My World. Perfection


A perfect cone Mount Mayon, located at Albay, Bicol Province.

An active volcano. Last activity was on November 2006. See here: http: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayon_Volcano . For more images click here

Taken from Guinobatan Albay, April 9, 2009

Taken on clear day, Mayon Vocano covered with clouds. Not so perfect this time.

Reality Of Life

The reality of life..
what lies ahead..
the reasons we are here..


When I went out of town these past weeks. While driving and stopping. I noticed down below the valley, a yellow flower. It stand out in the midst of weeds and greens. I wonder its blooming so beautiful alone in the field.




Just then I remember His words..
"See how the lilies in the field grow.Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own".
