found objects

During holy week, this jotter sought out refuge from the simmering city heat at a private beach house in Tabogon, an hour-and-a-half drive from Cebu City.

At night, while sipping champagne in a lap pool, one marveled at the full moon—a perfect, solitary orb of silvery gold light against the dimmest indigo, cloudless skies. While the shimmering water mesmerized, the passing breeze perfumed the nocturnal air with the unmistakable scent of an exotic breed of frangipani nearby.

Early mornings found one climbing the rocky cliffs and jumping into the warm waters of the welcoming cove while late afternoons were for hikes to the nearby town of Daan Tabogon (Old Tabogon) and exchanging pleasantries with the townsfolk.

Those were exquisite days of rest, the best chance to catch up with steven, a sommelier friend from New York; my host jiji, educator and entrepreneur; and eva, my Miami-based publisher.

On his solitary walks at the beach, your jotter photographed found objects which are featured here. Figure out what each object is and have the chance to be this jotter’s special guest for Metrowear 100 this coming April 30.
