Snaps -> Simple & Light - Yet Soulful

[Yes, Great Memories Are made of Simple Moments Like These]

This is only a quarter portion of the view.
I avoided the frames where the huge glass panels 
converge at the edge of the room, while taking this photo.

How did you spend your Holy Wednesday ?  Me, I had the fortune of spending some 4-5 hours with five guys "discussing business & artistic concerns" - and sharing lottsa laughs - in a 23rd Floor corner office overlooking a portion of BGC.  Shared a simple lunch with them, too, and of course, I  ended up serving my usual ->"JPEGs for dessert" [so to speak].  Here are some of them.

 Reason 2 Smile - Rick O. is in the House.

 This image was taken by Krizelle "Kring" Lacson.
Great chops [Daniel], great timing by Kring, 
- simple but effective composition. [My kinda photo !]

 I took this one of Kring [w/ her Henna].

Kring also took this one of Arlet [She's a Judo Freak]. 
 I lent Arlet and Kring a DSLR each to take on-the-spots of each other, 
occasionally giving them picture taking tips.

Actually Took a whole lotta photos. 
These just happen to be the ones I'm willing to share.

- Parting Shots -
Just B4 everybody bounces, have [L-R]
Rick Olivares / Paolo Carlos / Kring Lacson / Arlet Coronado
and Daniel Gonzales sit on the floor and - well - just BE.

Kring and Arlet are fresh grads [as in they marched last March 24] from the Ateneo.  Daniel, from North Virginia, is an opera singer. He is now with the NAVY Football Team, currently participating in the UFL.

Good Times !!!

Weekend # 6 - Part 6D

Sweet Sweep

Alyssa Valdez is smothered by rookie Ara Galang and veteran Abigail Marano.

 Gorayeb's girls lose their legs in the 5th.
They simply fumble their receives time and again.

 Although out of frame, that's Gretchen Ho being blocked by Cha Cruz.
[I can tell by the two wrist bands and the tape on the left hand fingers]

 The Queen Archer, Cha Cruz, seen here w/ a defensive stance.

 Gem Ferrer gets caught flat footed.


 Losing Always Sucks !

- Mixed Emotions ? -

All is not lost.  The Lady Eagles maintain Solo Second and have the
Twice-To-Beat vs either FEU, AdU or UST, the three teams still having to go through the step ladder format to determine who gets a crack at Ateneo.

Weekend # 6 - Part 6C

The Action Continues

At first galnce, Gretchen Ho appears to be scoring a point.
Actually, DLSU scores in this sequence. Ho miscalculating the trajectory, 
has the ball bounce her side of the net to bounce back into the Ateneo side.

- DLSU D in action -

- A successful block by Marano on Valdez sends the DLSU gallery screaming -

Abigail Marano hits a total of 20 Winners.

 Valdez' 16 is not enough to turn the game around for the Lady Eagles.
