Flower Power

White Orchids, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

The Greenhills shopping center, particularly its tiangge, is a Mecca for the bargain shopper. Foreigners and locals alike who visit Manila make this a requisite stop. Items such as clothes, toys, bags and much more may be found here. A small garden lies in its center and provides respite to the weary shopper. Plants, including this orchid, may be bought here.

Lesson learned: You never know what you're going to come across with. Keep a camera handy.

Taken March 2008 at one of the stalls selling plants in Greenhills Shopping Center.

Waiting for the Sun to Set

Sunset, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

From Kuala Lumpur, we traveled to Kuala Selangor to see the fireflies. En route, we saw some monkeys, a lighthouse and a temple. Dinner was at a seafood restaurant with a view. This one. We stayed until it was dark before heading out. The perk of the wait was watching the sun set and taking photographs.

Lesson learned: Be prepared to wait to get awesome pictures.

Happy Clown

Clown, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

A clown is commonly illustrated as having two faces: happy and sad. This one sports a happy face.

Lesson learned: Remember always to ask your subject's permission before taking his photograph. And in the search for good pictures, never be afraid to ask.
