#140 A Mother & Child

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!)

Where in the world is Hungduan in Ifugao?
