Glory Lies...

Day 110 - April 10, 2010

 

In picking yourself up.

 

My friend Miriam Quiambao knows all about this. Back in 1999 when she competed at the Miss Universe pageant she fell during the preliminaries, but she got up, did an awesome job, wowed the judges, and went on to finish first runner up.

 

We fall down all the time, just because we do doesn't mean that's end of it.

    Gorgeous photo Michael.. Nice colours and textures on the leaf.... and great use of DOF.... Some more of these constituting the bokeh would have been nicer... and boy oh boy, am I waiting for that '2k' shot of yours... :D This is bad... get people excited first and then just plain forget it..haha.. :D :D :D
