How Not Knowing Baguio Flora Makes You a Flower Expert

The flower which is single need not envy the thorns that are numerous.

My appreciation of flowers started when was very young as my grandfather (one best green thumb gardening mentor ) who in his spare time grew beautiful Baguio flowers. Thus, when I got older and wiser and imbued with the self-realization that always starts wth a pure intent of giving respect to Mother Nature which caused my mind's eye to open up and translate vision using a camera.  

Humbly, here's a collection of various Baguio City flowers that came my way whilst exercising photography skills throughout time. Enjoy. 


Humble Beginnings
I started taking digital pictures with a low-resolution smartphone. Then i got hold of a hand-me-down bridge camera from my sister. This kept my enthusiasm steadily warming up, unbound.

When the camera bug bites, there is no cure. Then, slowly but surely, I transitioned using DSLR camera from camera enthusiast buddies. To categorize my floral pursuits, I dubbed my first album "Pickin' Up Some Pieces" which started way back 2006.

On a final note, it doesn't take one to become an expert to know flowers. It just takes a moment to appreciate nature's wonderful creations.
