My Kapono!!

I can't really decide what to right at the moment. I guess I will start it about Kapono. When My Son was born last 01/13/11, my world changed. I can see the different colors of life and learned to appreciate what I have. It's the strangest feeling. As the days passes by, my son is showing more and more development and me and my wife are pretty sure he is advance for a 2 month old baby. I am very thankful that God gave us a bouncing, healthy and handsome baby boy.

Seeing him smile even on a picture takes all my worries and stress away. Such a lovely picture.. =)

This picture always remind me to strive hard and to do my best in everything.

Welcome to the world Kapono!!

Very peace.. looking at this makes me wanna sleep also.
Nighty night Kapono!!

lovely.. My wife told me that she was just amazed when she saw this picture.

Truly children are angels sent by God. We are lucky to receive one from Him. I love you Kapono Daniel Bleu Silverio!!

This are just some of the pictures that my wife uploaded and I considered them as my priceless treasure. Soon I will be joining my wife and son.. and I can't wait for that day to come.

That's all for now.. =)

How I see the world through the lens..

When most of the people owns a DLSR camera or a digital camera in layman's term, I own a toy camera   which is still an analogue. It's really an old school camera which still uses a 35mm film and a 120mm. For me, its really not about the type of camera that you use, but it's more of the idea or concept that you can capture. A click here and there and you'll never know that you have caught a priceless moments of other people. 

There are some culture who believes that when their pictures are taken, it also captures their soul. The only thing that we capture is their smile and that special moments. I consider myself a newbie for this kind of hobby. Nevertheless, I am doing this for my Son and Wife. They are my special subject and models. I can't wait to take pictures of them or a picture of us altogether. Some people may not see the significant or get the idea of my shots but in my heart and mind, I saw something through my lens when I took that shot. 

A group of fellow enthusiast invited me to join them. Being an amateur, I am very honored to join them. Honored and excited.. =) I know for a fact that I would learn a lot from them to improve my skills ( Skills?! Do I really have one? hahaha) I am a frustrated photographer and I love taking picture.

This picture was taken after our lunch in the office. Lunchtime  for us is really a time to joke around, vent out and most importantly share each others point of view.  

This was taken at Robinson's mall. A goofy friend and a very cool mom is an interesting subject.

My Mom.. Talk about tired and hungry.. Thanks to a quick meal at a fast food, it made her smile again.

Peek-a-boo mom.. hahaha!!

After a long day of work.. finally.. homeward bound.. Even though we are all tired, we can still smile in front of the camera.

I am happy and I can say very attached to my camera. I always bring them with me whether going outside for a walk, to the mall to buy something and even when I go to the office. Some say that taking a picture of a person without their permission is considered rude,. For me, it's capturing their moments where they can show their true form.. as we all say the HUMAN inside of us.

That's all for now.. =)

Helping Hands

Let me start my story with a Quote.. " It is better to give than to receive".. A simple sentence that have a deeper meaning. We tend to prefer receiving gifts and money from other people, but when the time comes that it's our turn to reach out, we fold. The most common gesture or behavior that we show to show that we don't have anything to share or give is turning our backs or shaking our heads. A signal that we don't have anything or we have nothing to give out. I am not saying that all people are like this, there are that we can say as exceptional.

There are people willing to give out almost anything, without hesitations and without second thoughts. There's this special person I know that have those traits. I refer to her as my Mother Theresa because for her, helping others doesn't have to be based on color, gender or race. A very strong and hardworking woman whose faith cannot be bent. She helps other people and doesn't expect anything in return. Most people would ask themselves "Why would I help this person? Did they come to my aid when I needed help?". These are just some of the questions that prevents us from reaching out.. helping others..

I am sure that I will teach my son and let him understand the meaning of that quotation. And also to make him realized and understand that we all need to help ourselves first before we can offer our help to others. In that way we can rest assured that we helped them in a way that we are not expecting something in return... Thanks Mom.. You are indeed my Mother Theresa.. =)
