Welcome to the gerryruiz photoblog – or the continuing saga of my efforts to continue learning about photography and web publication (see http://gdr.callezaragosa.com – like I said, a site doomed to be never fully constructed – for evolution seems to be inevitable in life…)
Built along the concept of paying it forward, I hope I’d be able to contribute, thru the blog, my own humble experience in the field of photography and share it with other photo beginners and enthusiasts.
It is also a my-own-little-way effort to help promote my homeland and hopefully help develop tourism activity in our area.
One big factor why blogging has become so popular (a key one for those wanting to have their own website) is the convenience being provided by blogging programs and sites such as wordpress, also, by the numerous social networks such as Facebook, multiply, etc. – you don’t have to learn complex technical stuff (html, scripts, etc.) to get it running in the web.
I do hope you’d enjoy your visit to my blog, much as I enjoy creating and maintaining it.
Godbless you all!

Here are my favorite quotes:
“This is the true joy in life…being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one…being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy…I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be used up when I die. For the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It’s a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.” – George Bernard Shaw
“The best part of having a hobby like photography is never running out of things to learn. Inspiration is all around you. Look at everything with the eyes of a photographer and you’ll see opportunities you never noticed before.” – Digital Photography School
