PHOTOBLOGGING: Parish Hunting in Cagayan de Oro City

SOMEONE USED TO say that a picture paints a thousand words. That is quite true. An image caught by a camera lens also tell a hundred tales and store a million bytes in your PC. A promising sunrise or a glorious sunset would always elicit awe and wonder to me and I find it appropriate to shoot these scenes in a proper angle and as pure as possible in still images. The amount of sheer satisfaction resulting from a good shot cannot be replaced.

This year I got introduced to a Kodak EasyShare C713 digital camera entrusted to me by my company. It's a late model though having 7.0 megapixels of optical power but one thing I am sure of about this gadget: it can take a rough handling. And so, I began using the digicam as soon as possible as my hands could lay it on.

Last September 26, 2008 I went to Cagayan de Oro City on a working visit. I focused my interest on two Catholic churches during a lull in my itinerary and I pressed the button to capture the images. It was my first baptism with a digital camera and me thinks that my shots were not that great as what I did to an analog camera, but just the same, I uploaded the photos in my blogs at Multiply and My Opera and the latter seemed to have given justice to my amateurish images:

This is my first experiment with photoblogging here in Blogger and I understand that my limitations will not be a big problem in the future. My only concern though is how to prevent people from copying my photos and give the credit as their own.

I'm quite flattered Princess about your comments. I'm beginning to feel as if I'm having wings and floating on air.
