Out at sea - Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday


Just as the day was finally going home, these fishermen were going out to sea. What fate awaits them beyond the quay?


All good fishermen stay young until they die, for fishing is the only dream of youth that doth not grow stale with age.

I miss the sight of Manila Bay, as the sun rises and as it sets. I miss it terribly.

I hope things have been well with you. Love pictures as always, buddy. Take care.

I am always in awe of the great sunset Manila Bay has to offer, and you captured them well!
P.S. Naka link ka na sa OW? #7 ako kanina tapos nawala, kaya naging 21 ako. Pakicheck kung nandoon yung link mo.

They're very brave heading out to sea in the dark, my goodness, I sure wouldn't be on the ocean at night. Beautiful captures - the sunset, the water, all of it!

Thank you for commenting on my blog & I'm so sorry the island is no more & I'm sorry about the quake, too!
