Beloved: The Daily Post Photo Challenge, 31 January 2018

Can you believe January 2018 is over? Self can’t.

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is BELOVED.

We’re asked to “share a photo of something that is dearly loved.”

Here are a couple:

Museums. Self loves museums. This one is a picture of the last museum she visited, in the University of Santo Tomas, the oldest university in Manila (founded 1611):


The Art and Natural History Museum, University of Santo Tomas

Another thing self loves is history. And the University of Santo Tomas having been founded in 1611, there’s a lot of history there. Here’s the Main Building:

Last but not least, she loves her son. Here she is with him, in a picture taken about 10 years ago. He lives in southern California and last October married a wonderful girl, Jennie, who hails from New Mexico:


Andrew and Self at the Beach Chalet off the Great Highway, in San Francisco. The picture was taken approximately 10 years ago.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

    Nice images for this challenge. 1611 is a loooong time ago. If those university grounds could only talk…

    On a unrelated note: I was working at the GGB 10 years ago when you took the last photo in this series.

      So you were ON the span, an engineer? That is wild.

        I was an electrician for the District and worked rotating shifts on the bridge.

        I feel like putting you in a story. Can I interview you?

        I’m excited! I’ll be back in touch soon as I have the “frame” of the story worked out.

        I am honored and look forward to hearing from you.

      • February 2, 2018 at 4:32 pm

        I like interviewing people also, and am quite good, if I say so myself. But I’ll do a little background reading on the Bridge and get back to you!
