Weighing My Fortunes
Whenever you end up on the coastline of Nasugbu, Batangas which borders the West Philippine Sea, you’ll see the outline of Fortune Island on the horizon. Even as a kid, seeing the shadow of the island whenever we arrive at the beach meant “you’re home”. I would be mesmerized with the scenes of passing ships set against the silhouette of the island as the day goes by. On this day, I was walking along the beach before sunset, doing my usual thing of picking off images when I saw this lady sitting on the sand with the island off in the distance. I aligned them together to get the silhouette, island and clouds in just the right position. Turned out to be one of my favorite images from this trip.
