Happy. Ecstatic. Joyous

"It's surprising how much memory is built around things unnoticed at that time."
- Barbara Kingsolver -

My parking space at the office has a flourishing shrub that grows near it. What I like about this shrub is its vibrantly colored fruits and fresh hued flowers that dangle beautifully on its branches. This shrub is like a magnet to me, I never fail to just train my eye on its beautiful natural adornments every time I pass by it. I was afraid that any time soon it will stop bearing fruits and flowers. Finally, I got a chance to take some pictures of the shrub last weekend.

"The only constant thing in this world is change." At any day, I may no longer see this shrub so full of life. It is based on this belief that I try to appreciate the little things around me. I have so many things in mind that sometimes I forget, I need to capture them in a moment so I have something to go back and look. And speaking of appreciation...I am so happy for the many forms and ways of appreciation I received because of the photo sessions I have made. It was one happy week seeing the joyous and happy smiles of the people whom I have touched by way of photographs. To cap off the week, I am ecstatic to be a weekly favorite at Project 64: Out of the Box. You can view the winning photo here. I wish you can all see me brimming with happiness and beaming a big smile. :-)
