#38 A Country Road

www.PostcardsFromManila.com



Even the mid-day sun conspires with us when we're on safari.

While driving to a nearby waterfall, we drove through a thick grove of trees that casted the most incredible shadows on the road ahead.

But on a country road even beautiful shadows isn't enough to interrupt us from our journey... until we chanced upon a family on foot. Their strikingly colorful clothes leapt out from the natural earthy colors around them. It was a sight too good to miss. Enjoy.

  5. Before the car and the bus, Philippine roads were like this. Narrow and unpaved. People could walk distances. Never tire because of the cool shade.

  14. Your photos (of the Philippine countryside) are one of the best that I have seen; and your captions & commentaries are just as great. Keep on doing this craft that you've mastered !
