#269 Follow the Leader

"Hi-ho... Hi-ho... it's off to work we go..."  And so the Disney tune goes... 

On the way to Cauayan City in Isabela, we chanced upon folks working in a rice field along the road. Shooting from a single vantage point, all our pictures started to look alike, so I walked further afield to explore other opportunities. Just when I discovered this pile of bags and slippers in the bush, a bee-line of farmers were walking towards me. I thought a unique composition was about to unfold. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: Hyper-focal distance focusing is a concept from the days of film photography, where you couple a small enough aperture opening with an interesting enough foreground object. When you get it right, both near and far objects appear equally sharp. Worth a try.)

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 (, 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.)
