Friday Photos - My Forgotten Project

Two years ago, around January of 2009, I planned on compiling some of my husband's photos into a photo book and give it to him as a gift. I compiled 2 sets for 2 photo books: one I laid out like a digital scrap book containing our  photos from all the trips we took since we got together, and the other was a compilation of his photos. It was the first time I will be ordering a photo book and I wanted to see what it looks like so I decided to order one book first. Since Valentine's Day was coming up that time, I decided on the more sappy one, you know, the one with all our photos together (hehe) and then give it to him as a gift (I'm the one who wanted that photo book...  So in the end I got what I want, AND I had a gift ready for him... I win! I win!).

The book arrived a few days before Valentine's day and I loved it!
However, that was also around the same time we found out that I was already pregnant with Andrea. With all the excitement and preparation for the baby, I totally forgot about the other photo book.

And then yesterday, I was transferring my files from my old desktop to my laptop when I saw a folder marked "Photobook". Inside were my husband's photos which I prepared for the second photo book! I have forgotten that he is actually good at taking photos. Since Andrea arrived, our photo subject is mostly a small moving object that tries to grab the camera when she sees it pointed at her.  

I will still get that second photo book printed (and maybe give it to him for our wedding anniversary). But for now, every Friday, I will be posting some of his, and maybe some of my, photos here, with a little story behind them.  I'm calling it my Friday Photos series.


For now I give you this:

This was taken on the plane our way home from Boracay, where we spent our honeymoon after our wedding. I saw the light shining behind the wing of the plane from the window and tried to take a photo. I wasn't successful. I couldn't capture the light properly. I tried several times until hubby asked me what I was doing and when I told him, he adjusted the camera settings and took a shot. He got it!
