I am surprised as I saw today’s Daily Prompt entitled on the road. Although its main objective is to show bloggers about “travel”, I still want to share this photo of mine taken from the streets of Baclaran, Manila, Philippines.
This might be a good literal cover photo for today’s theme, “On The Road”.
Here in Saudi Arabia, you can see a lot of things like this things abandoned in an empty lot.
In life, oftentimes our place in society depends on what kind of chair we sat upon. In offices, the manager has a better kind of chair than a simple employee. Kings have their own kind too. Look around. You can see people’s society status by simply looking on what kind of chair they’re using.
In life, we don’t have to change ourselves, only get better. We need to improve but keep who we really are. So aim for a better and improved quality chair, but don’t change how you sit. It’s you. You’re unique.
I wish peace. I long for serenity. I want calmness. I need happiness. I MISS HOME
Actually, time always stood still, every time I miss home. I’m working here in abroad while my family is in the Philippines. My wife is taking care of our first baby born child, now 12 days old.
Time stood still while I’m remembering each moment while we were together before I went abroad. Treasured moments of laughter and struggles. Things flashed back on my mind on how we become successful in overcoming trials together.
And if I could only tweak a thing, it would be being there for them even for a single moment to give them both a hug and a kiss.
I miss home.
I found it fascinating to shoot children. There are always something inside that made me smile and recall my own childhood. If I have the chance, I would definitely want to re-experience such moments.
In this vast and complicated world, some lessons can’t be found in our day to day routine. We just need to observe and listen to the actions from these innocent children.
The freedom to seize the day and leave all worries behind.
The courage of taking risk and choosing to go the extra mile.
The choice to share and co-exist freely.
To dream simply and find the true meaning of happiness.
To race with friends not with competitors no matter you loose or win. It’s the experience of being alive counts.
To just enjoy life. Live if full and simple. Let the world smile for us for we will only be in this world for a limited time and there will be no other chance but now.
Let us take time to listen to children. They have better messages for us compared to what we are showing them. If we could only be like them, then this world will be a better world to live in.
How about you? Do you ever miss your childhood? I bet you have a unique one, ‘coz if not, so sad it will not be fair enough.
I’ll make it simple for today’s daily prompt.
In every troubled times
the safest place for me is within my Lord’s embrace.
I am always welcome to Him with arms wide open.
And to make it sure it will remain open forever, He have His hands nailed.
At the Cross I bend my knee.
Today’s Daily Prompt is quite challenging. It says,
“If you were forced to give up one sense, but gain super-sensitivity in another, which senses would you choose?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us SENSITIVE.”
Let me show you first a photo before I give my verdict. 🙂
Can you think of a reason why the short pants was not hang along with the others?
Do you have any idea why I took this shot?
Let me guess. Each one of you would have different answers in each question. There will be no common and universal answer to my questions. Well, the same thing with COMMON SENSE. The problem with it is that common sense is not always common. 🙂
To answer today’s daily prompt question, I would likely have a lot of COMMON SENSE. It will matter a lot with regards to survival. By the way, whether someone is forced or not to give up one sense, who dares? Every sense is essential to life, no one would risk. So its NONSENSE to loose one. Well, that’s it, I would give up NONSENSE. 😀
Here are my share for this day’s daily prompt challenge. Anything wrong with them?
A close window. A wall with some drawings most probably drawn by a child. What’s inside? Why is it close?
For some readers and viewers, the photo speaks nothing. But for a few, it can be something.
Can you describe or identify a thing or person exactly what it looks like by just looking at its shadow?
It’s difficult, right? Maybe we can visualize or have a wild guess, but it is just what it is, a product of our imagination, but not the actual thing. Take a look at this.
Sometimes we hide through our own shadow. We hide something that only ourselves know. Secrets, fears, shame, thoughts, desire etc. For what any reason? Only ourselves would know.
Sometimes our eyes fool us. It make us believe something that is not true.
Plain white clothes or striped? Fakes roam around. They are everywhere. Our eyes are not enough to identify the real ones from the other.
Most of us wants to be original. There is only one way to do that. Don’t be like the common.
If everyone is looking at life by the same boring perspective; If they are going the same way; same words and actions, then change yours in a better way.
Like footprints, we can leave a shadow in this world when our time is finish, our shadow inside the hearts and minds of those we left behind.
How would you like to be remembered? Pretender, Fake or Unique?
After a tiring long afternoon photowalk, me and my friend took a few minutes rest in a park. It was almost five o’clock when the birds in the trees began playing, flying from one tree to another. It got our attention. I quickly set my camera then started to take some random shots.
For the love of photography. I want to share how those birds love to be photographed too. 😀
I can hear them shouting “surprise” as I look on my camera screen. What a lovely formation.
