Listen..

  This was taken earlier today at -10 degrees freezing cold outside.

  1. Power of listening...

    I agree. We learn more if we listen more.

    Ang galing nmn ng shot at kuha pati mga small details. I am not a photographer pero I appreciate it.

    1. Reversed lens using an adaptor, then instant macro effect. That's the result! But I had too much light at napapaligiran ng snow kaya nagmukhang pale yung kuha.

    One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.

  6. it looks like loops inside the ear... just perfect for the title "Listen"... great capture and great quote. I think it is a snowy rose haha :)

  7. When I first saw the photo without reading the message the thought that comes into my mind was maybe it is part of the inner ear. Only to realize that it was a snow.

    A man who listens and listens well is wiser than a man who speak. As the cliche goes "Deep water runs smoothly and calm while shallow ones flow noisily". It pays to listen

    1. Mapanglinlang ba ang litrato kuya Jay? Yan siguro ang tinatawag na art kapag nakikita mo ang ibang anyo ng isang bagay sa bawat anggulo nito. Btw, overwhelmed naman ako pangalawang dalaw nyo na po sa blog ko.. maraming salamat po!

  9. Listening with an open mind, yan ang pinaka perfect na kailangan para walang conflict at always growing and improving tayo :) Agreeng agree ako sa parents ni Stephen Spielberg :)

    1. Yup kaya wala akong masyadong kuha ngayong winter, mostly nasa bahay lang ako kapag free ko. Bukod sa maginaw e madulas din kaya delikado lumabas. Imaginin mo yang -10 early in the morning papasok sa work at snowstorm, minsan umaabot pa ng -15 and more hahays!

  10. When you listen, you learn. Napaka-effective ng pakikinig muna kaysa ang gumawa ng walang nalalaman. Kung makikinig, maige ang bukas na isip at pagunawa sa bagong ideyang malalaman. :)
