#264 Fruits of their labor

In barrangay Cagel, in the town of Diffun in Quirino, it takes four months for rice to be sown, nurtured, and harvested. After which they haul them by carabao cart to the nearest roadside, where they await a trader to price and buy them. It's been a long four months so you'll forgive these farmers if, in their excitement and anticipation, they are lost in discussion while nosey photographers like us kept clicking away. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Street photography is about being invisible to your subjects so that you can take their pictures without affecting they way they interact with their environment. If you hang around your subjects long enough, they will eventually ignore you, to your delight.)
