I’m going to start something new here. Something to give this blog new life, a resurrection of sorts. Araw-Araw Fotojournalista will be a regular feature here on my editorial blog site. In Tagalog “Araw-Araw” simply means “everyday.” My goal is to begin posting single images here daily, or at least weekly. I have hundreds of photos to share from my recent trip to the Philippines last month (April) as well as hundreds more from the last year’s trip, most of which have never been published on my blog. Why is this? Because I really loathe writing. The photos I post under Araw-Araw will be accompanied by a standard cutline or description, and they aren’t always going to be of my travels and experiences in the Philippines. Araw-Araw will also include photos I’ve shot here on the home front, in the US. Anyone wishing to get more information about a photo or the subject matter within is welcome to post a question in the comments field of each update and I will gladly elaborate. Otherwise the photos will simply speak for themselves. Salamat.
