Happy New Year!!!

This year, I have so many things to be thankful for in photography. I became a finalist (www.sg) and won (Franklin Covey) in some of the photo contests I joined in. I almost screamed when I saw one of my photographs presented in the big screen months ago (in Powerplant Rockwell Cinema). Recently, I got an email from a CEO of a virtual-reality company and was shaking (close to tears) reading his words “…I went to your blog and like what I see…” (from a CEO?!!! Yes, from a CEO!!!). We exchange emails regularly now.

More importantly, photography routed me to inspiring people (pro / nonpro photographers and photography enthusiasts) from my country and around the world, friends who consistently comment in my photoblog entries to let me know how they feel about my works and my thoughts…and showed (and continuously showing) how wonderful the world is through their photographs and stories. Thank you very much, friends!

Happy New Year! Wishing a more creative and productive years ahead for everyone.

I took all the photos above here in my country.

  5. Well done Rizalenio, this impressive blog post is worthy of your accolade. I count myself as one of your blog friends and even though i have a bit of fun with you (maybe something to do with me not taking myself seriously as a photographer), I think it a privilege to come here and view the visual feast.
    No jokes here as the CEO is watching ;-) haha
