Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration

blog is like a desert – an endless body of thoughts

My discoveries are endless…I will continue to learn… to share… to dream…and to inspire!

i got my inspiration from my sons passion in photography

It is hard being alone in a foreign land where a woman’s voice is as rare as the rain pours. I was inspired to write my thoughts, what is happening around, the places I have been, the people I have met. I was inspired by other women who continues to fight, to dream and live happily in-spite of their difficulties.

bonding with friends, laughter and places are inspiration

Yes, out of boredom, i was inspired to start blogging but not to out pour my negativity but instead to inspire other women, to motivate them that there is beauty beyond fifty. I was inspired to learn how to take pictures from my sons who are both artistic on their own merit. I was inspired by the feedback i got from the readers.

self timer is on! at 53 I can still run and jump

I started my blog February 7, 2011, three months to go and  a year will pass, I will continue to blog, a memories of my days, places,friends and my families and to my would be grandchildren and their children,to them…my  memories,my thoughts, my life beyond fifty will always be remembered.

Weekly photo challenge – renewal

Renewal –  state of being made new,fresh or strong again. One  rainy day, birds under the trees, waiting for the rain to stop. Strolling along the street, I can’t help but stop and took this shot. I was inspired to walk more, instead of just going back to bed and hid under my blanket i decided to take more photos.

Weekly photo challenge: Everyday Life

Making of “Walis tingting” a native broom sticks made of palm leaf ribs used daily in cleaning houses in remote area of Katanghawan Island in Caramoan, Camarines Sur, Philippines.

With the advent of technology where there’s a lot of modern cleaning items like vacuum or rakes on sale, I wonder if this is still popular in city houses. For this man, it’s a way of daily life whether it’s for his own use or for sale in the nearby island.
