Photographer's Note

Few places on this earth are better than this beach if you are seeking warm weather and sandy beaches. Boracay is a name given to this place around 1542 when Spanish sailors walked ashore here and found the coralline sand to be so soft on your feet, it felt like cotton, which is where the name Boracay is derived. Around 470 years later this beach is still beautiful to walk along, and the people that live here have some of the characteristics of those early settlers, in both appearance and friendly temperament as in "happy disposition".

The land in the distance is the larger island of Panay.

Title = a Movie staring Kiefer Sutherland, Nastassja Kinski, Alun Armstrong made in 2003. Paris, 1880. Paul Gauguin is a successful financier. He lives in Paris with his wife Mette and their four children. But when his passion for painting becomes a mission to revolutionize art, Gauguin must unleash the savage within himself. To do so he gives up his job and comfortable lifestyle, leading his family into a downward spiral of poverty and travels to Tahiti. His voyages take him even further from his beloved family and teach him the true meaning of the word sacrifice. What price must he pay in order to pursue his dream?
