Six Photos of 2012 That I Loved

Six is a very small number to showcase 2012’s photos that carry all the experiences that I’ve been through in the year. Mainly, because I snap pictures of just about anything. I shoot scenes, I shoot objects, and I shoot people (with a camera, of course). 😛

Going through all my photo albums on Facebook and all those I have not uploaded but are still saved on my hard drive, I can’t help but feel disenchanted that I won’t be able to publish and share on this blog post as much photos as I want to. I guess that’s part of the challenge: choose wisely. 😀

Hurting Silently

This is one of the most sorrowful days of my life.

It is October 1st, the start of a new month—supposedly the start of something new. But I cannot feel happy knowing that Christmas is just around the corner, or feel any other moods of excitement. This morning, I discovered that my two beloved kittens were sprawled, cold, bloodied, and lifeless on the ground, just beside their sleeping spot.

In the first week of July, my only remaining household kitten, Agatha, died. The cause of death was never known. We just saw her lying lifeless on the ground one morning. There was no blood and she had a feeling of receding warmth, meaning she just died. I was saddened but I kind of expected it. She was having bowel problems and was not as perky as usual kittens are. She was born in May.
