Smiles and Pics

Just a short reflection.

I’m uploading files to when I noticed that most frames are crowded. Hey, wait a minute, these aren’t pictures of demonstrations and rallies!

It’s a Filipino trait, people crowd to fit into a picture frame. Smiles in their faces, each poses and tries to block the people behind them. Its quite fun, foreigners should try it too! We Filipinos tend to find ways to immortalize the moment in an image. We are very sentimental people and we attach ourselves to many things!

I remember Dexter Cuevas, my famous friend who was notorious for his cut-and-paste smile in every picture we take in the aspirantate. You can really see and feel the joy of his smile! Check your pics, do you wear them too?
