The Photos of Milton Oleaga: the 1st Unknown

After a long absence, I finally have all I need to continue posting the photography of Milton Oleaga (Aug. 3, 1929 to July 31, 2013). For the time being, I am numbering the photos. If you see someone you know, please send me the numbers and properly spelled names to mickeypamo@gmail.com. For their years of sweat and labor and artistry, they, at the very least, deserve a proper caption.

Macro Meditation

Transcendent Eye . . .

The fusions and confusions of a curious mind

My camera is a tool for meditation, focusing my mind behind the views my eyes find. Taking time out from the multi-tasked, multi-voiced cacophony of the daily demand, I return to my lens guide. I scan for small things taken much for granted which shouldn’t be, things often unseen, seemingly inconsequential, but are masterpieces simply lost amidst the inane. Holding a quiet, steady frame behind the widest aperture, I trace macro sight around a small bloom’s newly disclosed detail, in awe of it’s intricacy and tiny structures. My close focus rests en pointe. My fingers move around degrees of sharpness until the protagonist petalled part is illuminated against a blur of background. I take the shot, then seek again. The absorption in this cycle is mindfulness in action; breathing slows, mind coalesces around it, and contentment seeps through the bones of me.
