Farmers ' Working Hands in Laguna Bay Loop, the Philippines -- September 2011 Asia Online Photo Contest
by Kristine Malibiran
(Metro Manila, Philippines)
This photo was taken when I joined a photo walk around Laguna Bay Loop, Philippines. The sunrise must have shaken off my sleepiness that early morning because as soon as the sun started to peep out of the clouds, we went down our cars and prepared our full battle gear, cameras, tripods, filters, the works.
Along the vast plains of Mabitac, Laguna, we saw several farmers toiling under the early morning sun. No questions asked, we went down immediately as it was another photo moment. "?Ngiti ka dyan! Baka mapadala ang litrato sa Amerika!" (= Smile! Your photo might be sent to America!) said one of the farmers to his fellow.
I used my Nikon D40 here.
