So one vote will go to one of my favorite travel and photo bl[og].
I personally like his blog because he captures ordinary moments and makes it extraordinary because of his connection to his subject. I already met Oggie and I can describe him as someone who's naturally witty and humble. Humble in the sense that he always recognizes God as the one behind his talent in photography and writing.
His hobby of traveling, photography and writing has already led him to numerous recognition and achievements. These includes articles and photos featured on travel and photography magazines.
I am lucky enough to have the chance to feature him before on my old blog. So I am reposting that online interview here.
what lead you to blogging?
I’ve had this affinity for writing journals since I was a kid. It was just a natural thing to follow that path when blogging started. When I started over 4 years ago, my blog was just words. But I mixed in pictures here and there over the years.

and interesting culture?
This is a very difficult question to answer since each place is different; each culture is vibrant in its own way. Although I always have an affinity for
what makes every trip special?
The great unknown. You can only research so much but your actual experience would be different from what the internet or the books may tell you. Either way, you come out richer for the experience.
i noticed that your blog also promotes good
spirituality, how important is that to you?
My writing and photography are symbiotically-connected to my spirituality. When I first went into serious photography, I get a lot of comments that there’s an intense emotional feeling viewers get from the images. My only explanation for that is because I immerse myself in God’s creations. I believe that when you connect to the universe, it will open itself up to you.
Also, I got into landscape photography to share my awe of God’s creation. Nothing like standing on a mountaintop to feel there’s a power far greater than the biggest ego.
what profession would you accept even without pay?
