Sand dollars have different colors. These live in shallow waters. When they are not submerged in water, sand dollars dry and turn to silvery-white. These are fragile and easily break. When you see sand dollars on the shore away from the waters, put these back so that they won’t dry.
This sunset that I was mesmerized with, I will never see again. All sunsets are unique, just like all people are. Taking time to stop and appreciate sunsets is one way we can connect ourselves with nature and how everything, however magnificent, can only be admired and experienced fleetingly. We may be in the here and now but when we are just memories that linger in the hearts and minds of the people who love us and whom we have touched in special ways, these sunsets will still be here being admired by the next generation after ours.
Savor special moments that may be gone right before our eyes. Soak in the colors and sounds of these fleeting moments but have these etch in our memories for when the ability to experience these are gone, there are pockets of memories that we can still hold on to and remember with fondness.
I am a “passenger seat drive-by photographer” when we go out of town. I think I have almost perfected the art of taking photos from a moving vehicle. Not that the photos are all good but there is always one or two or even more that turns out quite well.
These are the mountains one can see along the SCTEx or the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, on the way to Subic from Clark.
