#158 Children of Pulag

When we travel around our country, one of things we find in absolute abundance are young children. They are friendly, wide-eyed, and generally as curious of us as we are about them. It helps that our country's population is growing at its fastest clip in history. But we shoot them for a very simple reason: they are most willing to be photographed. 

We were on our way up to Mt. Pulag when we spotted a lone school house by the road. We quickly alighted from our jeepney and walked into a class in progress, introducing our ourselves and chatting up a storm with a most charming teacher. They don't get a lot of visitors like us, and we can't get more compelling photographs of our trips. That's Street Photography 101 when in the boondocks. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: A group picture inside their dim classroom wasn't my idea of an environmental portrait, so we found a partially broken fence behind the schoolhouse where everyone can be in his/her own element.)

Where in the world is the Mt. Pulag in Benguet?

For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, 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 of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
