This day in history from:

Getting addicted...

... to this photography thing again.

But mind you, I'm not entirely a beginner. The shutterbug bit me when I was in elementary school. I remember my dad bought a Canon AE-1 with telephoto, zoom and wide-angle lens.

It was all film then, but aside from the aperture and the and shutter speed, we had to focus manually and since we did not have a motor drive, burst (sports) shooting was out of the question.

But the fun part then was, we had a darkroom. Although it was only for black-and-white photographs, I experienced first hand the magic of developing negatives and printing pictures out of them.

But my! Times have changed!

No more negatives. No more running out of film and time lost loading them. No more negative developing costs. No more contact prints. No more smelly chemicals. No more fiddling around in the dark.

The principles of taking photographs, however, remain the same, although I forgot most of them already. But I'm pretty sure that with a little help from the internet, I will relearn them again. I just hope I will have the time to spare, given my work and other recreational pursuits.

Also, it may be a chance for me to catch up on time with my friends. I already have two invitations, one from a high school classmate and one from a law school classmate to do some photography-themed activities. As soon as my schedule clears, I will take them up on their respective offers.

I still know how to compose photographs, though, if I do say so myself. You can check my photographs out in my Multiply and Facebook accounts.

And as of now, I like to do portraits because I love to photograph my kids.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
