#201 Stalker@Work


The sun awakened us to a moist and misty morning. What previously was a dark and formless expanse before dawn, now in full daylight, turned-out to be a large field strewn with fallen cane. Nearby, a bunch of workers were loading them onto a waiting truck. For students of lifestyle & environmental photography, we were in Disneyland!

Rural folks at work fascinate us no end. Whether they're planting or harvesting rice, corn, or coffee... or carving wood or firing pots... or farming salt or hauling fish... we've traveled across our country to photograph them all. This morning we came to photograph sugar farmers harvesting cane. It's as noble a profession as any we've seen. And now we've collected timeless images of them as well. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Whenever I get the chance, I shoot with some of the best photographers and image makers I know. It's never too late to learn something from those further along the learning curve. It's also a great way to see more than a single perspective at the same time. Try it today.)

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 (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), 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 aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
