#249 To be young and free


Do you recall a time when we you were young and free, without nary a care for life's complexity? 

These three kids were doing just that in a place that appeared to be both beautiful and un-spoilt. It looked like a scene right out of an old school textbook. I didn't expect to see a place like this so close to civilization, and hoped that it can be saved from development. Yet people here live on the edge of subsistence.  How long will a paradise like this remain for the young & free? Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: The harsh midday sun isn't the best time to be taking pictures, but don't let that stop you when you see a good story unfold.)

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.)
