Not only did I have fun photographing the breathtaking sceneries in the province, I was equally amused capturing the beautiful smiles of the children. The girl above is from remote mountainous place in San Miguel, Baras. I loved visiting her place because it is so peaceful and beautiful, which reminds me of the scenes in the movie, "Sounds of Music." I promised her that I am going to send her this picture by mail and was so tickled about it. In this picture, she was eating "tubo ng niyog."
Included in the next picture are my nephews Rap-Rap (middle) wearing blue shirt, and Jhonnie (barely showing) who is seated to the left of Rap-Rap. One of my goals is to supply these kids with games, books, and communication tools to hone their reading and writing skills at an early age.
The next three pictures were taken in Agban, Baras where one of my brother lives. For some reason, kids had a fascination about camera, they swarmed in around my friends like bees in no time. Glad, they left me alone. I was busy scouting the area in the hope of finding baby coconuts. Poor Bob and Elaine..they had to put up with those prying kids though they seemed to enjoy it.
