This is a challenge that I read here. It's a writing challenge wherein you are given a topic each day to write about. You have to do that for 30 days.

I almost forgot all about it. We had a power interruption earlier today. I wanted to do this challenge earlier but then I woke up late. By the time I decided to write, I only have a few minutes left before the power went out. Not enough time to write.

Good thing I found the time before I end my day. So on with the challenge.

A memory from eight years ago. At least that's what facebook said.

This is one of the photos in my facebook memory. I am not exactly sure if it really was eight years ago. maybe I uploaded this late. Maybe the event happened earlier. I really suck at remembering details.

Anyway, this is my first pre-nuptial photo coverage. This was when I was just starting with photography and I am just a user of DSLR for a year I think. A friend of a friend saw photos that I have uploaded in my account. I don't take photos of people that much. It's mostly landscape and food and things that interest me. That's why it's a surprise that this friend of a friend wanted me to do her prenup and wedding photos.

I did dream of putting up my own photography business that's why I took it as a personal challenge to accept this project. If I wanted to grow, I have to be more exposed.

So we traveled some hours to get to the beach. That is the client's preference.

The Reserved sign I was holding there was on one of the huts by the beach. We were waiting for the sun to set that time so that it will not be that hot to take photos of the couple.

While waiting, I asked my friend to take that photo holding that sign.

Funny thing is that, I was still single at that time. I posted that in my facebook of course and many got intrigued who am I reserved for. I didn't give in to their curiosity and let them sizzle in my silence lol! Eventually, their curiosity waned.

Sometimes, all we need is silence. We don't have to give in to pressure from others. Most are just looking for something to talk about even though it is none of their concerns. It all depends upon us how we react. We have the power. We have the control.

You have the decision on what to click, what to post, what to share, what to respond and who to respond to. I know you already know this so I am just reminding you again and again. Don't be a victim of other's curiosity. Guard yourself from the prying eyes and evil intent of others.

How was your day today? I hope you have a good start of the week.

For me, not so well for the back pain resurfaced. I don't know what triggered it but it suddenly hit me again while alighting a jeepney a while ago. I almost couldn't stand up straight.

Anyway, it's an unpredictable weather that we have been having as always. Good thing it was a good weather here. We were able to go out and had a good day.

Cheers to you all and thank you for your support. Laters!

I'd also be intrigued if I saw this photo without a context. 😆 Facebook memories are fun to look back, as it makes us feel sentimental.

I missed reading your articles, it's been a while. You're right, silence is power. We should not be intimidated by the curiosity of others. Let them think, let them wonder, just live at peace and be happy. :)

Fortunately, my back pain can be eased by stretching so that's what I do to relieve it :)
