beachhhour second day in phuket we took the speedboat and went 10 minutes away to the japanese island :]

mostly always empty with a restaurant on the beach

nice place to get away and relax but bring bug spray and use a lot!

ive never really taken a serious photography class, iv just always enjoyed doing it for fun and experimenting, but a friend took me to do this fashion photography workshop and it was an opportunity that was totally worth it. there were about 12-14 people taking the class and we were lucky enough to shoot one of manila’s top elite models, alisa. i was intimidated by the other photographers in the room since they were all experienced, but everyone was supportive of each other and were a lot of fun to work with. we started off with a few exercises, working with partners and as a group, which made us feel more comfortable working together. then we started shooting… the set was futuristic with alisa styled in a “gaga” fashion, which was fun and something iv never done before. i didnt have my own camera so i used one of the photographer’s and it was heavy! (we only had a minute or so to get the shot we wanted so resting my arms was not an option.) i honestly didnt know what i wanted in the shot at first but then i got more “into it” and eventually got the shot i wanted. we shot alisa in 2 different outfits and played with lighting, which i found hardest, but i think i did a pretty good job ☺… above are 3 of the favorite shots i took. what do you think!?

✷ workshops are held at edge of light studios, manila. learn more about edge of light studios by visiting http://edgeoflightstudios.com/. ☺

MEXICO CITY – A new documentary about Mayan civilization proves they made contact with extraterrestrials.

“Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond,” proves that Mayans had contact with extraterrestrials.  Producer Raul Julia-Levy told WWN that the evidence is “overwhelming.”   And the Mexican government is backing him up.

“Mexico will release codices, artifacts and significant documents with evidence of Mayan and extraterrestrial contact, and all of their information will be corroborated by archaeologists,” said Julia-Levy, son of actor Raul Julia.

Luis Augusto Garcia Rosado, the minister of tourism for the Mexican state of Campeche, said new evidence has emerged “of contact between the Mayans and extraterrestrials, supported by translations of certain codices, which the government has kept secure in underground vaults for some time.”

He also referenced “landing pads in the jungle that are 3,000 years old.”

Raul-Julia claims there is proof that the Mayans intended to lead the planet for thousands of years, but were forced to escape after an invasion by “men of dark intentions,” leaving behind evidence of an advanced race.

“The Mexican government is not making this statement on their own — everything we say, we’re going to back up,” he said.

The film is directed by Juan Carlos Rulfo, who won the Humanitas Prize for “Those Who Remain” in 2009 and the Sundance Grand Jury Prize for International Documentary for “In the Pit” in 2006. Juan Diego Rodriguez Gonzalez will serve as the Guatemalan executive producer, and Eduardo Vertiz as the Mexican executive producer.

“The message of the film is crucial to human survival,” Julia-Levy said.

When Julia-Levy, producer Ed Elbert and co-producer Sheila McCarthy announced the Mexican cooperation with their documentary to , they were circumspect about claims of alien contact, with Julia-Levy admitting he’d been ordered not to say anything about it.

The Guatemalen government was also skeptical and brushed off the question about alien contact, while allowing the filmmakers’ access to previously unexplored sections of a Mayan site at Calakmul.

Not only did the Guatemalen government change its tune, but they also joined the project, giving access to artifacts and newly discovered prophecies.  “We believe for certain that aliens worked with the Mayans.,” said Guatemalen arts minister, Jose Rosado.

“Guatemala, like Mexico, home to the ancient yet advanced Mayan civilization … has also kept certain provocative archeological discoveries classified, and now believes that it is time to bring forth this information in the new documentary,” Guatemala’s minister of tourism, Guillermo Novielli Quezada, said in a statement.

He said the country was working with filmmakers “for the good of mankind.”

Raul-Julia claims that the order to cooperate came directly from the country’s president, Alvaro Colom Caballero.

Guatemala is the site of a large number of pre-Columbian Mayan settlements in the Mirador Basin, including the extensive and highly organized city of El Mirador (detail, left; exterior on previous page).

“Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond”  is due for a theatrical release in late 2012, before the end of the Mayan calendar.

While doomsday scenarios focus on the calendar ending on Dec. 21, 2012, many scholars point out that it simply resets for another 5,126-year cycle on that date.
