That moment you let your hands click the shutter because your eyes saw something that delights your senses – a couple of lichens growing, showing life amidst decay, turning hope into joy.  That moment that your hands itch to touch the soil and dig, plant a seed or two  and let them grow. It evokes memories and you smile at the thought because you found a treasure. Afterall, they say, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

I love the sea although  it was quite sometime since I visited one. Gazing at the distant horizon, I am always in awe of the one great Hand who created it. There is always that feeling of peace inside my sometimes troubled heart every time  I see something like this.

And William Blake described it beautifully  when he said:  “To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.”

weekly photo challenge

The  anticipation

And the excitement

That an early morning brings -

Feeling the sun on your face

And silence whispers,

“What a beautiful world.”

This comes a bit late I guess,  but I love the weekly photo challenge for this week. It connotes a lot of things,and  I would like to share two shots I took of my favorite places which I still visit every now and then, when  I have time.

Sto. Domingo

I love this clean look of the long corridor of  Santo Domingo Church leading to the  main altar. There was a time when we used to come here a lot to visit my adopted son who is now a Dominican priest.  It is the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

UST

And this is Santisimo Rosario Parish, located inside the campus of the University of Santo Tomas where I spent my  high school and college years. For us Thomasians, it is simply called the UST Chapel.  Back when I was a student, I used to attend daily student masses here.

That moment when   the clouds hide  the sun’s brilliance but then you know that in a while, the dazzling light would show its face  and everything in your world would be right again. Life shadows are there to show us a promise of what is to come – maybe, something new to discover, to appreciate and admire.

I have always loved choosing a particular photo or several shots I took  through the years that would depict my interpretation of the Weekly Photo Challenge and I love what WordPress has come up with this week,  The World Through My Eyes. What a lovely subject to focus on. And I wish I could also try using more font choices here just to emphasize a post or make  the blog look great. I digress.

clouds

Next to my garden shots (flowers and blooms mostly), clouds are my favorite subject. I am in awe of seeing cloud formations and always  asks myself, “What secrets are you hiding? Are you happy just drifting and pouring  your heart as rain when things get so heavy?”

Life sometimes is  like a cloud. It is a never-ending process of discovery. There is always a bright  floss cotton candy  that you’ll see high above then all of a sudden, it changes its course and begins to darken.  I admire the way it floats, heading somewhere beyond,  then you get to ask again, “Is it also bright and sunny in your part of the world or are you enjoying the sudden summer rain drenching  your feet in puddles  and laughing your heart out like a child?”

Happiness sometimes is also fleeting, you shine one moment and cry the next. Then you’ll  see a lovely rainbow slowly breaking in the horizon, amidst clouds and sunshine.  And you hear the silence speaking to you softly whispering, God is near! And you smile because you are happy.

Nothing comes to mind for this challenge except for these three  photos that I took  of one of my favorite places, Caleruega.

This is the main hallway of Caleruega with this lovely curved staircase made of wood.  And at the back of this staircase is a Koi pond with all those colorful Koi fish merrily swimming in the background.

I do love this lush, green garden with a curve pond for more Koi. I would love to come back here and just absorb the serenity and quiet of the place.
