My World#106 It's Football Day

The kids' face were wrinkled in concentration. Their feet were running fast as much as they could muster. One can see that they were determined to get the ball and make the goal. While just at the rim of the football field, their mothers were hauling their hearts out cheering the children on. One mother said that she could've played to make the goal for her boy but all she could was just to watch and nibble on her fingernails in anticipation.

His mama asked me to take her boy's photo before he continue the game after a brief break but he was already on his feet running to the middle of the field. She called him back and he went back slowly while keeping an eye to the referee. So, he posed with his brows wrinkled, his face and body covered with sweat.

She was the only girl I saw who played in their age bracket but she sure made the boys' lives more difficult in the football field.

Good form from a young and aspiring football player.

My World#105 Going For The Run

I was curious how those weekend runs go. Running is now popular and there's always an organized run every weekend. I haven't tried one yet as I preferred doing tennis or badminton on those days. I readily agreed though when a friend suggested that we take some photographs on the scheduled run especially so that another photographer-friend will run a 10 kilometer for the first time.

It took me quite a determination to wake up this early. The run is scheduled to start at 5am. Happily and groggily, I made it to the assembly place.

The organizers prepped the participants up by warm-ups and stretchings. A little dancing was mixed-in too.

Photobucket

I find it interesting that there were a lot of participants in all ages. They came in groups: families, officemates, classmates and friends.

They came in solos and twos:

Some actually ran and some preferred to walk:

It was good to know that thru running and/or walking, people are improving their health but what I'm really happy about is that most of the shots except for the first two were taken while we were on a moving car. We were sitting at the back of the fast running pick-up (the driver seemed to be in a hurry) and we tried to take photos and prayed that they didn't get blurry too much.

Skywatch#65 Punta Dumalag Sunset

We were hoping for a blazing and colorful sunset but we went to the wrong side of the Punta Dumalag peninsula. It was too late when we learned that we need to transfer to another location. So, here's what I got for the sunset photoshoot. A tranquil, blue-gray scene with the clouded-over Mt. Apo as the background.

My World#104 A No-Sunset Photoshoot at Punta Dumalag

Punta Dumalag is a peninsula that juts out of Davao Gulf. It has a turtle sanctuary and a mangrove area that are being preserved in coordination between the private and the government sectors. It is a beautiful place and it has a no-swimming zone which I heartily agree on because the other side of the peninsula is already starting to get congested with beach resorts.

Aside from the mangrove area and the turtle sanctuary, this lone tree which is standing a few meters away from the beach is one of the interesting features of the place.

We were supposed to do a sunset photoshoot at the area but we got the location wrong. We should've been at the other side of the peninsula to see the sunset. I was also expecting to see and to take photos of some of the sea turtle hatchlings but they were not there. However, there were three or four mature Hawksbill sea turtles in two cages by the beach.

Photobucket

With the unexpected turn of events on our planned sunset photoshoot, it was a good thing that some of our co-photographers brought a model to pose for us. So, after taking photos of the area, I gave my attention to our model and snapped away.

Skywatch#64 Sunrise At Sea

This fishing boat was coming in at the Sta. Ana wharf as the dawn was breaking. The dark sky was starting to show tinges of red and yellow.

And the sun came out blazing that day..

My World#103 Sta. Ana Wharf At Dawn

I woke up before 3am in the morning and hurried to the meeting point, Mc Donald's fastfood. The place was already full at 4am in the morning. All of us were excited as most of would be having this sunrise photoshoot for the first time. A few people were already lingering at the Sta. Ana Wharf when we arrived. Most of them were laborers and fishermen on their work shift.  We immediately got busy and set up our tripods. Here're some of the shots...

I was not sure if this guy was able to snatch a few winks with his bike seat as his pillow while dawn was breaking..

We saw these two guys diving while the sun was rising in the background. One of the lady-photographers approached them and asked them to do some more dives so we could take some photos. They did a few more dives to our delight. At the same instance, a fisherman paddling on his boat passed by. A nice serendipitous setting.

Skywatch#63 I Wish For A Sunny Day

A colossal snowstorm that buried half of USA in inches of snow, a super cyclone that battered Australia for days and on our side of the planet, rains and overcast skies rule this week. I really, really miss the sun now. So, am posting some sunny day photos just to remind myself and everybody out there that things will get better.
