SEPTEMBER 28, 2018, Ektar 100, Pentax K-x 35mm: Weekend at the farm
Kuya Abet driving us to the farm. It was a not-so-sunny-but-not-dim kind of afternoon.
My dad always has meetings. He has a way with people. Maybe it’s in how he always has good intentions and purpose in everything he does.
The empty “meeting room”
As we were walking around the farm, I stepped on a spud-like thing, and pointed it out to Kuya Abet. Apparently, it was Singkamas (Turnip). I was so surprised, I thought someone just threw it on the floor, but apparently, it was “ligaw”.
Kuya Abet always helps out in the farm. He gives his honest opinions, and gives feedback about farm activities!
We were in a Mango Orchard, and my parents were discussing something, and the light hit them oh so dramatically, I just had to take the shot.

These Kamotes (Sweet Potato) were actually just planted to keep grass away from the Papayas. But they turned out so beautiful and sweet!
These flowers looked so pretty, and I was fascinated by the small bulbs. My mom would bring home some of these to put on vases at our house in Manila.
These are Dalandan trees. My mom told me about how these trees bore fruit this year even if it wasn’t their season yet. This is one of the possible effects of using organic matter to enrich land and plants! 🙂

OCTOBER 2, 2018, Ektar 100, Pentax K-x 35mm: An Afternoon at Home
I really liked the light streaks coming in from the window, so I photographed my hand with it. I really like how even small gestures of hands can communicate different things. It can be delicate, or stern, or giving or closed off.

I like how the lighting fell on my body, subtly forming shaped and lines amongst the darkness.
