  1. I believe there’s no such thing as a “frustrated photographer”. This is the age of tearing down the standards of photography. Just look around. Is Gertie short for Gertrudes? Love that name, I have it for my daughter. If this blog just opened recently, with 9 followers and 170+ hits, you have an excellent start. I’m raising a glass for you right now Gertie

  2. Thank you Elmer! Gertie is my full name but yes, it’s basically short for Gertrude which is a Dutch/German name. It’s my first with WordPress actually. I had one with blogger but I wasn’t able to maintain it. I want to change it all actually. About photography, yeah I’m not a pro but I want to learn. In fact I bought my DSLR just few weeks back and I’m so scared to use it. That’s why I’m trying to find a Filipino group of photogs here in Dubai that holds classes for basic photography. I might enroll this month if I found one. Thanks again for recognizing my blog! I enjoy your blog too especially the photos!
