I took this next shot (black and white on left) without permission. Next thing I knew, I was the one being interrogated. Where I'm from, where we're heading, what are the pictures for, and surprisingly the kids asked if they want me to hop in and take a ride with them back to the city. I went back to the car smiling and so proud of what I just did. Don't blame me, it was my first time. :)
This solo picture of my little friend from Sarangani province is one of my favorites. I didn't get a chance to talk to him that long. He was in a hurry because his friends are leaving him behind. They were even teasing him when he smiled at the camera. I couldn't help but give him 50 bucks for his time and smile where in fact I knew it was priceless. When his friends saw I gave him money, they wanted to pose for me too. I said nah. I just got what I needed.
Until now I don't know if I did the right thing by saying no to his friends but the truth is, I didn't have more 50 bucks on my pocket to spare. LOL.
