Plain lucky day

Some days can just be plain and drab; at times something can stir a little excitement. And sometimes it can just turn out to be your lucky day.

Like yesterday. After enjoying a hearty lunch at Rafael’s Farm in Babatngon, Leyte, I was surveying the quiet premises around the restaurant’s lagoon and decided to take a few shots. Looking intently thru the camera’s viewfinder, I was trying to compose a shot of the waterlily buds when suddenly a bird entered into the picture! Woa! I followed the bird around, and after a few minutes of patiently waiting, I got my chance.

T’was my lucky day. 🙂

  1. you call it luck, it may be fate. who knows to what purpose the bird might have been called in to grace your camera’s field of vision. it is a remembrance of nature in a rare confluence of elements, in 3d.

  2. bcb xxxciii, if you follow the rule of thirds in photography, the waterlily buds would have been okay by itself on the lower left third. Medyo, kulang though. With the entry of the bird, I would say THAT completed the compose. Fate?

    Thanks, kabatch, for dropping by! Hope everything’s fine at your end! 🙂
