Back in April 2005, my daughter was able to capture a really wonderful afternoon scene at the Ardent Hot Springs in Camiguin Island. It was during a youth summer camp and my whole family was there too. As I was busy inside the cottage where we stayed, my daughter suddenly rushed in from the outside asking quickly for my camera. So I gave it to her. What came out was a really wonderful scenic view. Nope, there were no photographic gadgets used. It was just a simple 3.1 megapixel Mercury digital camera—an unheard of camera brand. She took a really good shot!

Great Photo Using Simple Digital Camera

What produced the effect was the smoke produced by the burning leaves gathered by the resort personnel of Ardent Hot Springs as they cleaned up the surroundings. A great photo out of a simple digital camera!

Jesus and Little Children

“People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’ And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.” (Mark 10:13-16)


Dove and Kitten Watching

I happened to visit my hometown a month or so ago and one lazy afternoon in our backyard, I noticed a dove which kept on watching from a neighbor’s rooftop. It was interested in the dog food which was near me. I had that good opportunity to take shots of it from nearby. By the way, I noticed that this dove happened to have only one leg (not obvious in photo). During that same afternoon, I also took a shot of a sleepy kitten which I thought was a bit amusing.
