Yes, A!, you can say that this part of Manila Bay can be a sanctuary from the city's madness .... hehehe.

Many thanks!

I bet they have even more picturesque scenes of marinas at the Bay Area and over at Sausalito, right Carla? Enjoy your holiday over there!

Thanks, Rhoda. Based on today's session, I've got to say that FPPF doesn't seem to run out of incredible photography instructors.

Allan is deeply knowledgeable, especially about lights and lighting techniques. And most important, he truly enjoys sharing his insight.

According to one of my photography teachers, vertical lines are supposed to signify strength, power and spirituality, Kyels. And of course, depth for water.

Enjoy your weekend!

Lovely picture eric. And very apt title.

You know, my name irene means peace, serene. :) And I could use some peace of mind. My mind is so cluttered with all these ugly thoughts. :( I think I'll just stare at your picture and maybe that will help. :)

Well, maybe the universe meant for me to post this especially for you, Irene.

Just fill your thoughts with the ideal situation you want to happen instead! Don't focus on the negatives kasi bibigyan mo lang ng power ang mga yan!

Ah, Sasha ... Manila Bay is Manila's greatest attraction and the country's treasure! Some of the most glorius sunsets occur at Manila Bay!

Many thanks!

Speking of the bay, Utoy, right on Baywalk, I was there this morning and saw the hordes of colorful bicyclists of Festival of Fireflies. I was taking pictures right on the middle of their path and no one ran me down ... hehehe .... thank God!

Did you see me?

Hi Minotte! Thanks! Here's technical info about this photo:

Aperture: F13
Shutter: 1/200 sec
Focal Length: 48mm
ISO: 100
White Balance: Cloudy (to get warm effect)

By the way, Ramon Magsaysay High school here in Manila offers a free month-long photography classes in the evening. I say this because I've a feeling they might have similar programs for adults where you are. Check it out.

I agree with Ferdz. You would make a wonderful teacher. And it is a fun way to earn a little extra money on the side.

Wonderful picture, Eric!
Australia soon? ;-)

The teachers of photography I've come across so far, Sidney, are incredibly well-versed in this subject, especially its technical aspects. Darn, I've barely scratched the surface! I get stressed out even to think about teaching photography ... hehehe.

That's one tough international competition, Free, but having been accepted as a contender is an honor enough :)

Many thanks for your auspicious wishes!

I felt depressed...a very lonely atmosphere comparable to the bleak economic atmosphere made by the Arroyo Government. Corruption, Senseless killings, Unemployment, Poverty, Starvation in the countryside.

Overwhelmingly deperssing, indeed, Anonymous. Why not focus on what you can do to help heal things, though on small ways; rather than on how they adversely affect your conscisouness?
