New year's greetings, a firecracker casualty and a 2011 baby

2:50 PM

I turned bokeh of lights into fireworks!

Happy new year!

I know this is a belated greeting but I'm still saying it anyway. How was your new year celebration? For me, it was an unconventional one for 2011. It was my first time to spend it without my family. JR and I were in PGH (Philippine General Hospital) doing firecracker casualties photography for photojournalism.

I can feel your pain kuya.

A 2011 baby!!

Aside from us, doctors, nurses, security guards, policemen and media people are out working on new year's eve. Hope you had a great one! It was definitely an experience for me. No outfit post because I was wearing a shirt, shorts and sneaks to be comfy and safe while out in the field.

And since I didn't catch the fireworks, I posted something that I took a few days before Christmas that kinda looks like it (pwede na! haha) using bokeh of lights.

A prosperous new year to all of us and may we all change for the better.
