DADDY’S LAST CAMPFIRE

Scouting was Dad’s life.  Unfortunately, neither myself nor my siblings took interest in it. Camping and the outdoors were way out of my comfort zone.

OF SUNSETS AND MISSED SHOTS

As I was driving home from work today, the western horizon was slowly turning into graduated shades of orange and gold, the sun was hovering just a little above the horizon when I caught a glimpse of sakadas on top of a ten-wheeler truck, loading it with sugarcane, cleaning each stem to minimize trash, and...

BACOLOD: SHOOTING WIDE

It's one of those days... you get up and realize you're missing something badly.  You do what you got do, right? Something I learned when I was reviewing for the Bar Exams.  Even though it was late in the morning, I decided to pick-up my camera bag and head to Downtown Bacolod.    Didn't really have...

UAAP SEASON 77: UP V NU

Angeli Araneta looked on from the sidelines during the dying end of the third set as the Lady Bulldogs came down hard and closed the match against the Lady Maroons.  She watched helplessly as her team crumbled, loosing the game and bid their hopes for a final four finish goodbye.  What if Kathy wasn't sidelined by an...
