It was an afternoon of two feasts -- one outside, celebrating the shoe industry of Marikina City and the other, inside a Thai restaurant. Everything was pulsating. Outdoors the locals were preparing for the procession of their patron saint, Our Lady of the Abandoned. Indoors, Christmas lanterns hung over the Thai restaurant's dining tables as dish after dish was served. The only thing not moving that day was the steel bar window.

At 6:00am that day, Punta De Fabian was without the rowdy college students who stirred the pool water like it was some smoothie. They were all still sound asleep probably drunk from the night before. I was up early because I knew that the infinity pool would let me capture a stunning reflection of the sunrise, the sky and that unassuming tree. And it did.

    Simple processes are easy. Usually what's easy is fun. Most fun stuff are surprising. This is why simplicity can be surprising. This is true of snap shots or images taken informally. Surprise yourselves with simple shots!
