these pictures were from the galapagos islands in the fall of 2012 and taken at different times of the day.

the galapagos islands are located in the eastern side of the pacific ocean, the largest of the earth’s oceanic division. as a point of reference, the philippines is on the western side.

as you know, the sea holds a special place in my heart since i was a kid.

i grew up in a crowded town far from the sea. from where we lived, the closest beach was two hours drive away. it provided a safe haven from the tsunami, but it also meant missing a lot of fun.

back in those days, my family couldn’t afford to go to the beach often. that was why, it felt very special whenever we did. it was like going to disneyland. as a kid, it offered a playground without walls and fences to worry about.

as a grown up, i could tell that my fascination for the beach hasn’t waned except for some innocence lost. in addition, my vision has expanded further into the sea, which has become a symbol of freedom and unlimited possibilities.

i live close to the sea now somewhere in the san francisco bay area. whenever i feel constricted and my spirit broken, i drive by the beach and look at the sea to recharge.
