Salaam,

since some photo threads are launched here, sometimes, I like you to join me on a trip to Philippines. Why this country? Well, because my wife is native filipina and we often spend some time in our second residence close to Leyte

Here some pics

Philippines in pouring rain, but still 30 degree temperature




here is a view from the village, my mother in law lives. It's really muddy and literally 'in the jungle'

a beach where I often take my kids to unwind an take a bath in the warm water



while you go to the beach and swim, you can ask a local to take care of your stuff, for a small fee, of course. They are mostly trustful persons of hotels

nice thread.. why did you call it pitiful? seems charming in its own unique way...
You always have to swap one thing for another in life.. sometimes the simple country life is its own reward..

peace!

Humm, yeah, pityful is a wrong word. I would say, 'basic life', no electric, no water, no toilet, nothing. It's just a booth. For a purist life, it would be paradise, for sure.
But I love to be there, away from a rainy cold place I usually live. I will go back only next year in August. It's 13hours by airplane

Thank you for your warm feedback.

I post some more pics of my trips to different sites in the Philippines. Notice that all pics are my owns.

Some of the pics have been deleted by mods as I'm not always aware of what is allowed and what not. But there is never a bad intention. It's just the point that it is a hot country, and people wear only few. But it is always hard to make landscape pics as the people are very friendly there and jump enthousiastically in front of every lens to be in the frame. :D


These small floating boats are for rent. You can have a lot of fun, specially when you have kids




smiling faces everywhere

Mt. Mayon. One of the seldom 'perfect cone' active volcanos. The city down is 'Legaspi'. We often pass by there.



when Filipinos have nothing to do, or have no people wanting to ride their 'tricycles', they play cards


now they have some customers :D

Since my wife and me often make donations to support schools for local kids, we have been invited by the teachers and were allowed to make some pics inside classrooms

When it rains, it really rains hard, but the rain is so warm that you could take a shower outside. That is the rainy season in the Philippines



Our decent small house in Subic Bay, not far away from the birth place of my wife, Olongapo. It is kept decent to avoid burglars. My wife's mom take care of the house and also live inside when we are not there.



every year I go back, I try to move on with the work. The surroundings still look a little bit ugly

wonderful pics Guyabano, thanks so much for sharing, these sunsets are breathtaking, I love how all the colors espouse and become so harmonious, the sky and the sea reflect each other as if old friends meeting at the end of the day.. so poetic yet not a word is uttered.. .. did you take these? you are very good with the camera-- we are seeing a totally different side of you.. Ramadan brings out the best in all people... I am so glad the charged sections are closed... so people can do human at its best...

peace!

Thank you. Yes I took all pictures myself. I own an NIKON F90 and an digital CAM SONY DSC F828 (and a few smaller ones) and I enjoy making pics. I have nearby 400 GB pics of around the world which I travelled in my former job. I could spam the whole forum with pic threads, but I think, the mods will not appreciate as none are related to Islam (as the purpose of this forum is)

I took a photography course back in college as an elective.. didn't prove very good at it :-\ .. my pictures are not sharp where they are supposed to be or soft where they need to be I blame it all on the shutter speed ofcourse :lol: I humbly accept my limitations and areas where I am not gifted ..
we have many wonderful picture threads where you can participate... believe it or not looking at nature and marveling can be a form of worship if it leads to reflection.. thus your photo might actually be very purpose of the forum related.. It is advisable religiously and medicinally to take time to reflect, decompress, to appreciate the universe we live in, to take comfort in the provisions provided us therein and smile every once in a while as it is a form of charity toward your fellow man...

peace!
