#265 Onion Farmers


In barrangay Kita-kita, in San Jose City Nueva Ecija, the sight of gaudily-clad farmers in the distance piqued our curiosity. After doubling-back and walking into the fields, we discovered they're onion farmers hired to weed fields planted to white onion. Gently plucking weeds growing in-between onion sprouts is hard work, for which each one will earn P130.00 a day. But discovering them at work was worth much more than that to us. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Learn to watch the light and work with it. Photographing your subjects while they are lit up from an angle can raise the contrast. And if the light happen to come from a setting sun, the colors will pop with a golden hue.)

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.)
