"Do you think this is just another day in your life?
It's NOT just another day
It's the ONE day that is given to you
Today

It's given to you
It's a gift
And the only appropriate response is
Gratefulness."
- from Louie Schwartzberg

"As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters." - J. K. Rowling

Birding in Caron is the most beautiful album that I loved from you gallery collections. It is good to see some great talents from the photographers like you. The nature’s beauty is the best in the world capturing it requires talent.

Hi Sir gerry.
I'm your new fan! :) GOD really blessed you with a great talent! Sir, its really great that I was able to see your photos and I was really amazed. Actually, I'm really looking forward to be like yours, taking great pictures of things here on earth. I really loved to learn more on photography and join a club. I was indeed a photojournalist when I was in high school for 2 years and I stopped my passion when I was in College for some personal matters but now that I'm already craving for it again, I'm decided to really pursue on it. I hope I could get some views from you with regards on my desire.
Thanks and GOD bless! :)
