Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

My entry for this week’s photo challenge: Extra, extra.

The innocent ones and the innocent once.
Kids in Sikaw, Tamayong.

The Faces of Innocents and the Innocent once

We met this family in the mountainous area of Tamayong.  We were passing by their home when a very hard rain caught us. The kind mother invited us to take a shelter inside their house. We took a nap for a little while but the rain lasted for several hours, giving us more time to bond with this family, especially the kids.  I wanted to capture the innocence in the faces of these kids  but Kevin just appeared quickly on the side. He’s not supposed to be in the picture but it made the shot more memorable.

We became friends with this  family and gave them a visit every time we climb that mountain. After a while, they abandoned their home. Some sort of tribal war happened on their land. A year after that incident, we  came back to that mountain and we met the kids on our way down. We visit them on their new home and it’s good to see them again, new place was really far though. 😉

Rocks or Leeches?

Rocks or Leeches
Tamayong

It’s either making your way by climbing over the steep side of the rocks and might fall eventually with the chance of hitting your head against the rock or by jumping into the water with leeches on it.

We tried the rocks but duh… I doubted if I’ll ever make it. There’s a part over there wherein I can’t get a stable  grip when I tried to make a turning leap  except entrusting my fate in the hands of my buddy( that will be Leo Adorado)  but I don’t think  he’ll managed to pull me over the edge considering that I am way heavier now. I’ve done this before but I don’t usually go halfheartedly, so I stepped back. I guess things really changes over time. We can never do things over and over same way as before. But with perseverance, for sure we’ll be able to catch our goal but on the other way around, taste a new experience and learn something different, defying fear (because  I’m really scared with leeches to death).

Then I chose leeches. 😉
