We often see the truth about ourselves in the most strangest way

Reflections from Jay's shades

You ever look a picture of yourself, and see a stranger in the background? It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you. How many moments of other peoples life have we been in. Were we a part of someone's life when their dream came true or were we there when their dream died. Did we keep trying to get in? As if we were somehow destined to be there or did the shot take us by surprise. Just think, you could be a big part of someone else’s life, and not even know it.

Anyway, I had to see myself through Jay's dark eyeglasses while we're fighting the strong wind and the huge waves on our way to Banol Beach.

oo nga. nice lines that you've picked. sa dami daming tao na nakasama sa mga pictures ko, hindi ko lang alam kung saan saan na rin ako nakasama sa pictures ng ibang tao.

I agree w/those lines. Very.


I do see myself in the strangest way possible too - sometimes.

Oh I have one of this too. I think this is like photography 101, right?

Very cool image.

It's true, I captured a lot of strangers in my photos, who knows where my image has been and how it's been used.

hi dom,
yea, i've wondered a lot about it too. in 2007, i've covered the uplb graduation and took some shots of 'strangers' and then a year later i've met them in the office and realized that i've seen and known them way before i even met them. and went through my archives and found several photos of them. now, isn't that neat (and weird)?

lately, i've been seeing the strange me! and i don't know if i'll be happy or scared, hehehe!

photo cache,
yea, yea...for photogs especially. this is the 'narcisstic' side of every photographer i guess, getting one's own reflection through other means.

Looking at yourself through the eyes of someone else. A different concept.
