Jun 6, 2009


(This post is dedicated to Bebskie . Hope it will not make you miss home more.)

Fort San Pedro is the place where I runaway to especially during the late afternoon summer. It's actually the perfect place here in Iloilo City to watch the sunset.

This set of shots was the last sunset I've watched this summer of 2009. I was running out of time just to catch it. Unfortunately, the sun did not show up the perfect I expected.

It was covered by white clouds and only its rays I saw while biting a piece of pizza.
I still took some shots...more and more shots...

until it finally bid goodbye to me and goodbye for summer days.
I turned my attention to the opposite side and I saw its reflection in the mountain of Guimaras Island.
Because of the romantic view I did not realized that the cup of soda I handed on my left hand was already empty.
I brought home the empty plastic bag and the feeling of emptiness. I realized I was all alone.
Yet I am still happy.
