Project 365 – Day 25

Red roses, as we think of them today, are the traditional symbol for love and romance. The modern red rose we are now familiar with was introduced to Europe from China in the 1800’s. However, the meanings associated with them can be traced back many centuries, even to some of the earliest societies. The color red itself evolved from an early primal symbol for life into a metaphor for deep emotion. In Greek and Roman mythology the red rose was closely tied to the goddess of love. Many early cultures used red roses to decorate marriage ceremonies and they were often a part of traditional wedding attire. Through this practice, the red rose became known as a symbol for love and fidelity. As the tradition of exchanging roses and other flowers as gifts of affection came into prevalence, the red rose naturally became the flower of choice for sending the strongest message of love. This is a tradition that has endured to the present day.

Red roses continue to be the most popular way to say “I love you” to someone special. The rich heritage of the red rose has culminated in its modern day image as the lover’s rose. They are the definitive symbol for romantic sentiments, representing true love, stronger than thorns. Red roses are a meaningful gift, perfect for expressing feelings for a loved one on Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or simply “just because.” For the budding relationship, a red rose bouquet can also signal the beginning of romantic intentions. They can send a message of commitment and an invitation to take the next step. Even the simplicity of a single red rose can elicit a powerful response. Whatever the occasion, red roses have an allure that is hard to resist!

Project 365 – Day 23

Another question… Why is it on the wedding day, it’s the bride’s day? Why can’t it be the groom’s day? If not, then will there be ever a groom’s day? Father’s day and Birthday not included. 🙂 LOL.

Something to think about.

Project 365 – Day 21

Project 365 – Day 21

It’s been a long long long long long long time since i posted something. Forgive me. Anyway, I’ve been very busy and last weekend i attended a friend’s wedding. It’s a very beautiful Spanish themed wedding held at Intramuros.

Intramuros in Manila was the center of Spanish colonial rule and has left behind many architectures that are Spanish in style. The Spanish ruling class lived inside the city. In the 17th century the Intramuros consisted around two thousand inhabitants. In the 18th century the increasing growth of the city suspended the growth of the Intramuros, as now Manila is much more than Intramuros.

In the next few days, I’ll be posting pictures that I took weeks ago to catch up, I hope you guys won’t mind.

Here’s a photo of the bride and groom sealing their marriage with a kiss. 🙂

Project 365 – Day 20

I really had this shot lined up for this blog. This shot was taken last Sunday at our church. Our church celebrated 20 years here in the Philippines. I’m blessed to be a part of this church. I am a photographer volunteer for Alabang New Life Christian Center and I love being a volunteer. It was once said by a Pastor in our church. “nothing can beat a heart of a volunteer” I do agree, do you?

I am blessed to have a friend that allowed me to use her UWA. I shot this using Canon 10-22mm. It’s just an amazing lens. Still praying that someone would bless me with one. 🙂

If you noticed the people on the shot are a bit blurry. I was trying to get a star effect on the lights which I believe I was able to do.

EXIF:

2 sec. / ISO 400 / 10mm “HAND HELD” 😉
