left behind

left behind

This is what I’ve been feeling since 2014. It didn’t matter that I held on for so long with pleas, promises and, prayers. They still leave. It didn’t matter that I shed tears for many, many months. I still get left behind.

The last one to leave was my brother — the last one I have.

My world fell quiet. And I felt alone.

off social

I’ve have been slowly getting off social media. I’m not actually deleting my socmed accounts. I’m just not actively posting or visiting most of them anymore. I was thinking it was better for my mental health to lay off it — too much angst, I think. I will likely dip back into it on an as-needed basis which is mostly admin stuff.

a monochrome experiment

I have always liked monochromes black & whites or sepias. On a recent trip to Puerto Galera, Mindoro I took plenty of color photos but I also took a handful of monotones.

I wanted to see how the places I visited would look like in sepia rather than in the traditional colored photographs. I was surprised the photos invoked a feeling that I was back in that period of time in the early 1900s and there wasn’t much people around.


Photo notes:
The photos did not go through any post processing save for the waterfalls which I scaled down to meet the maximum upload size of the blogging software. The images were taken with a Canon EOS 100D in one of the programmable monochrome modes which I set myself. The lens is a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM set
