Looming 3rd Month

I can't believe it's almost August 17- marking the third month of my blog's existence. I actually went through almost ten headers in that short span of time, each one has a story behind it.. This one is the very first, which was actually made by my good friend Mark- who also was the person who inspired me to blog. If in a parallel universe, I get to publish The Emancipation as a book, this will be the cover. Thanks Mark ; )
My first attempt at a banner. I used a face pic and simply repeated the image. Not entirely bad, but I wouldn't use this one again.
Between the urban jungles of Makati and the pristine paradise of Guiuan.. That would be me in the middle.
A sea of white, minimalist fonts, and oh yeah that's me in my boxers. When I learned that some of the faculty members opened my blog in the Faculty Office, I cleaned this up straightaway. But this was not as risque as the homoerotic ads of D & G, which I also used as a banner for a short period.
Leonardo diCaprio makes a cameo in this orange banner. I always loved that photo from The Beach.. very dramatic, as if he's waiting for his "emancipation".
These pics were taken at the centennial airport. I can still remember the face of the Japanese guy who looked at me strangely as I posed away like crazy.
More experiments with Photoshop..
Thanks for visiting! In closing, I'd like to share this quote I've always liked:
"Surely it is one of the strangest things we know, that mere printer's ink on wood-pulp can so draw two minds together and enclose them for a moment within a single thought."

The first time I got here it was the first header. You made me think you're into the 70s fashion but it was cool. Overall, I like the one in the airport best. It looks pro :)

@ runawaycat: that one did took a lot of editing ; )

I like the airport one too! It's very modern and chic.

@ john halcyon von rothschild: I might consider a comeback for that one then hehe Thanks for the feedback!
