Out on a limb

Untitled

Traveling, even to familiar places, is never easy for me. I'm swept into a web of memories, stories, heightened senses, and the complexities of personal relationships, seen and experienced up close. To retain my perspective, it helps at times to be around nature: to breathe in the fresh air and let my eyes and limbs do the walking. I took this photo last weekend and maybe it can give you a sense of that moment when I looked up and saw this above me. How odd that it is a black and white image when I usually prefer and have a better feel for color.

goodbye's eve



I for one realized that after all this time, I have yet to take photos at the airport whenever I drop you off. Even when I wait outside till you give me the go-signal that all is okay at customs and security. And that my wife is clear to leave me for a spell or two.


So I did, and found this kid, a reflection of what I was going through. Much more obvious though, as he is still far from being an adult.

All Hallows' Eve

I missed spending All Saints' Day with you and documenting the traditional observances in Manila. Catching, instead, a bit of All Hallows' Eve, here are some sights leading up to that spooky night.
