There are few subjects more universally heart-touching than that of a mother nursing her new-born child.
We were walking towards the town of Hapao in Hungduan when we chanced upon some makeshift homes by the side of the road. Some kids playing outside kept most of our cameras busy. But it was through an open window where we discovered the real deal. Inside one of the homes, a young mother is nursing her newly born child. She sat in front of another open window at the rear of the shack, looking alternately at her child and then into the terraces beyond. I don't know what she was thinking of at that very moment, but you can fill in the blanks. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: It pays to travel in good company, especially with others who are more situationally perceptive. Special thanks to my shooting buddy RaulE for spotting this scene and letting me know before she closed that window!)
But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (firstname.lastname@example.org), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers. Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas. No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at email@example.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
