Happy Easter Sunday everyone!
After attending the Easter Sunday Mass, I had a chance to check out the photo exhibit of GoodPlanet Foundation. To be honest, I’m not fond of spending so much time reading the details/descriptions of each picture in an exhibit. I just let the pictures speak for itself and have my own appreciation of the art. But in this case, I caught myself reading the descriptions of each pictures to appreciate more the story behind it.
The theme of the exhibit “Planet Ocean: A Dual Outlook in The Ocean” with photographs by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Brian Skerry is an effective way to raise awareness and educate the public on environmental protection. The trivia/descriptions attached and amazing photographs are enough to attract the public and make them more interesting to look at.
Upon reading and viewing all the pictures at the exhibit, it definitely satisfies my curiosity on what is really going on with our environment. It made me realize that no matter how great those pictures are, if we do not start acting and do our part in conserving our natural resources, we may not see our world the same way again. No more picturesque environment worth sharing in instagram 😦
So, if you have time, you may visit the exhibit at Alabang Town Center until 27 April 2014 to experience it yourself.
Here are some of the pictures I took and my favorite images that are worth sharing.
Kuna Amerindian Homes on Robeson Islands

I wonder if this picture was taken on a high tide. I couldn’t imagine how they manage to survive living in this little island.
Raja Ampat Archipelago,
West Papua Province, Indonesia
Looks like Palawan and Hundred Islands in the Philippines.
The Great Blue Hole

Deep sea diving, anyone?
