Summer Flowers

Summer is officially here at the tropics and with that it means BEACHES. Last weekend, I went for a company outing at Camotes. Camotes is an island which is part of Cebu, Philippines. Camotes is recently developed as a getaway from the busy city life. The island boasts white beaches and crystal clear waters. I was (and still am) mesmerized by the beautiful beaches, in fact, the first time I explored the island I captured a lot of its beaches.

This time around, I intentionally set my mind to find the details of the island especially the ones I missed the first time I was there. My eyes opened to appreciate the beauty in the flowers, the pathways, the trees, the insects, etc. In my quest for details, I found these bougainvillea flowers blooming everywhere in Camotes and in the beach resort we stayed at. The color is magenta which fits perfectly for the Project 64: Out of the Box; however, I took this shot using my digital SLR; I didn't have my camera phone with me at that time.

I noticed in most of my photos that I usually photograph a subject in close crop or tight shot. I seemed to like it that way so to eliminate any other distraction and just bring focus to the subject. As an out of the box challenge for me, I purposefully shot wide the photo above and I didn't succumb to the temptation of a close crop to the flowers. This is a sneak peak to that summer escapade; I'll be back with more after I sort the photos.
