For my soul

After spending almost the entire week indoors at the Ateneo Art Gallery looking at some very strange artwork, let's step outdoors for a breather, shall we? Just another beautiful day looking at the boats docked at the Manila Yacht Club. This photo is from the archives. After three weeks of almost constant rain, my soul is yearning for some bright blue skies.

Somehow those yacht clubs have international appeal. Could be anywhere. Love the way the boats are the horizon line.

Isn't it amazing at how effective a photo like this can be in terms of calming one down, and making one feel better...?

Three weeks of rain, strange art ... yes, you do need a break. Hope this worked!

serenity, need i say more?

Eki Qushay Akhwan said...

yes, we all need blue skies to cheer up our mood.

i take it that it's the rainy season in Manila? It's the end of dry season in Bandung, but it's still very dry.

Have a nice weekend, Hilda.

Hi Hilda, I love the pastel hues as the back drop of the bay.
I have read a few posts down and you have a great eye of your shots. Great composition and your posts have a wealth of information. I have enjoyed reading specially our history.
