the art of writing
I’ve had my fair share of writing essays (formal and informal themes) both in grade school and high school. If by chance I’d be able to read the compositions I’ve written then, I’d probably fall off my chair laughing at myself. I’m glad I was not traumatized by the experience. In fact, judging from what I’m doing now, the exercises have left a very positive impact on me. So with that, I am thanking all my English teachers for the very wonderful job of teaching me.
School starts today as the semestral break comes to an end, and just this week I met some kids who probably like school very much that they’ve spent part of their vacation doing some writing.
The girls are using the sidewalk as their writing desk. As I was about to leave, the boy on the right ran back to their house to get a pencil. He wanted to do some writing too. Sorry kid, I had to rush home to give my son some lessons he won’t get in school – biking lessons.
All day long my conscience was nagging me for the lack of activities with the kids during Sundays, and so I spent the rest of the afternoon running back and forth holding the bike to keep it in balance while my son learned to ride it. Now all my kids can ride a bike.
Love this post! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your story and your photos.
thanks for the story and the beautiful portraits.
Excellent street portraits of beautiful subjects – very nice. 🙂
Hi, to what area do you usually take your photos? They’re lovely coz you were able to capture those raw actions.
These were mostly taken in the residential areas of my hometown, Tacloban City.
The photo of the girl has particularly nice framing and composition.
As for your kids, they will never forget how to ride a bike nor the person who taught them. One day, they too will teach their kids, so you are part of a long transmission of skills and memories.
Thanks for pointing that out, Antonio. I learned to ride a bike on my own and wouldn’t have thought of it that way.
A nice story and lovely photos
love both frames, pretty girl with a beautiful smile, nice take. I am sure the kids can’t wait to go back to school.Thanks once again.
yes, and the excitement lasts until the first homework is handed out. Well, we’re only a few weeks away from Christmas vacation.
happened otherwise to me. I fled from english classes 🙂
it was Tagalog for me, which unfortunately happens to be our national language. We have our own dialect and most of us had a hard time with Tagalog.
