#274 The Clam Collector

In the wee hours of morn... when most of us are preparing breakfast... Mang Maing is doing the same in his own backyard. The difference is that he lives near the mouth of the Pansipit River in San Nicolas Batangas. And his breakfast? Freshwater clams that he collects himself. We have our supermarkets and convenience stores, but most rural folks still live off the land or from the bounty of the waters around them. The simple life, it's still is out there. Enjoy.

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.)
