What if?


My main subject in this photo is the boy with the percussion instrument who was looking pensive amidst the festivities. I figured that he and the other boy are members of a nomadic tribe that usually appears in the city during the christmas season (Which means in the Philippines as the months ending with -er, September, October etc.) (Notice the barefeet and the bamboo musical instrument.)

October 20- up to 25 was the 23rd foundation week of Grace Christian School. This photo was taken with my Kodak DC290 while I was dropped by the tricycle near the school area. The road was blocked while Grace Christian School celebrated their school's anniversary in the street.

I like this clean layout much better! And the fact that the photos are much larger!

The boys have come to play/beg for Christmas? ='(

Hilda---I've been meaning to look for a template that can house a larger photo. It only occured to me to actually change it with this photo. Yes, they have come to do an early christmas caroling.

vlado&toni-- Thank you! I really like this photo. Very candid. These guys are really camera shy too. At least I won't feel guilty because I haven't really featured their faces.

the dong-- Really? I didn't know that. Do they also bring a similarly looking bamboo instrument like in the photo?

tammie-- thanks tammie, it only got this way because I didn't know how to turn this into black and white with my current photo editor software. =)
