Capture the Colour


An entry for the Travel Supermarket Capture the Colour Competition.

In December 2010, I dropped out of the Global Financial Crisis (which is actually the Western Financial Crisis) and moved onto my 1Ha of coconut plantation

My wife won’t thank me for this (unless I win the prize!). After a long round-the-island boat trip, we’d just jumped into the sea at San Remegio (Samal Island) when I grabbed this underwater photo without being able to look through the camera’s viewfinder. It’s very blue though, isn’t it.

The Samal Island ferry from Davao (Mindanao, Philippines). I commute to and from work on the ferry each day; most days I get to see the ‘Eggman’ carrying his wares stacked on his yellow motorbike. Lot’s of yellow scrambled egg in the event of an upset.

If I don’t win this competition, the goose gets it. It’s as simple as that. His life is in your hands…well he’s in my hands, but you know what I mean. [One of my geese on my lifestyle smallholding on Samal Island, Davao, Philippines]

Erm…nah, I’m lost for words. The Indak Indak tribal street dancer competitors wait in a side street for their chance to impress the Mayoress of Davao. I have no idea what a Fanny Salon does.

Some of the shortlisted entries from around the world are here. The goose’s game is up.
