My amateur photographs

Pictures are everywhere. May it be flowers, tourist spots like beach, falls and etc. But few of us appreciate the simpleness and the unfamiliar picture. We always look and sometimes keep the beautiful one but taken for granted those are not familiar to us.

As an amateur photographer, i never look a subject that is not only beautiful and attractive. For me, taking pictures is not just taking beautiful subject but taking those subject that are interesting and critical. I maybe an amateur in terms of photography but it’s not how long and how far you learned about it. I believe that you have the skill about it. You have a natural talent in photography and lastly your interest of being a photographer is in your heart.

Since childhood, i am into arts. I love to draw, i love to capture interesting pictures. It doesn’t matter to me if it is beautiful or not as long as the subject is interesting. As long as the subject has something to do in the future or for myself. Pictures are also the reflections of our personality. The angle, the size, the color… whatever it is, it reflects our personality. But it doesn’t mean if you took pictures that are messy or abstract, your personality is messy and unpredictable too. It’s the other side of explainations. Taking that kind of picture is like you are telling people about your place, of what is happening around us, of what is good about our place. We are giving insight to those who are not familiar with our hometown by showing them our different spots and culture.

Here are some pictures i took with my one and only digicam:

Connecting Tacloban City on the Leyte side and Santa Rita town on the Samar side, it offers many picturesque views, especially of the San Juanico Straight with its thousand whirlpools as well as the islets of the province.

Construction on the 21.9 million-dollar bridge began in 1969 and was completed in 1973, during the presidency of Ferdinand Marcos.
