Hope and Despair

This photo was taken in San Pedro Street. One of the busiest streets here in Davao City. The backdrop is the monument of our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. Poverty is widespread in the Philippines but it is not a deterrent for Filipinos to sulk in despair…The resiliency of the Filipino is beyond compared in spite of the many challenges the country is facing ranging from political, social, and economic problems. There is hope. The sun also rises !

Street photographs are mirror images of society, displaying "unmanipulated" scenes, with usually unaware subjects.
