i took this shot last May when I was in Cebu. this was taken on one of the overpass in Fuente Osmena circle. the country is already facing poverty, gas price increase and now conflicts in Mindanao. the ongoing encounters of the military and the MILF group in Cotabato and other parts of Mindanao is really disturbing. more and more people are affected with their livelihood, safety and the children's education. let's hope that things will get better in the coming days.
i've been very busy lately and will still be busy in the coming weeks. so i'll be posting some photos from my archive. but i'll still make time to drop by your blogs.
I hope that things get better there. this is a very emotional shot!, It reminds me to be thankful for everything that I have.
pahirap na ng pahirap...na ng pahirap.
:( Everywhere in every country these are the sights that break our heart..
Hope there'll be less of these around.
There seems to be no easy solution to the Bansang Moro problem. Ilang dekada na at libong buhay na ang nawala at mawawala dahil sa pinag-aawayan na yan sa Mindanao. Poverty is one of the reasons why peace in the ARMM seems so unattainable. But is federalism the solution to a long-lasting peace in the ARMM? Mas ramdam nga talaga ngayon ang kahirapan ng buhay…kaya mag-cost-cutting na.:D
i like this photo...
>luke, thanks! yes you really need to be thankful for that.
>napaboaniya, yes. it's sad because in the philippines the president thinks the country is getting better.
>hi luna, thanks! actually there's a solution that's not as complicated as you think, but the problem is, are the people needed in the solution ready to do it. definitely it's not BJE. not ARMM. if you want to know the solution, you can email me personally.
i always hope for the best..but i don't think things will get better back home.
perstaym ko po sa blog nio..
bloghopping from doc.rio's blog..hehehe!
ang aliw na po dito,
ang ggnda ng mga pechurs..
will be back to read more of ur entries.
two thumbs up sa blog mo!
i think ive passed this overpass na. and yep, maraming beggars nga. may iilan nga nasa edge na ng overpass. kulang nalang isang gulong para mahulog. pero magaling silang tumantya ng position nila. hehe
>gibo, i really hope things will get better in the coming days.
>hi teresa, thanks a lot! yang si doc rio idol talaga ng bayan yan.
>the islander, malamang kasi dalawa lang naman ang overpass sa area na yon. oo marami din sa mga hagdan. kakalungkot yung mga ganito.
dom san to? marami akong tanong sa isipan ko kapag nakakita ako ng ganito.
maganda ang shot mo. yung reflection ng light ang galing!
daming ganitong nakikita lalo ngayon. hay.
Seems to be the same story everywhere. You've captured the hope and the hopelessness in one shot. Great job.
very interesting shot!
I share your sentiments about Mindanao. My heart goes out to the civilians who are caught in between. We should all be praying (and working) for peace.
i like the "drama" you attached to this shot.least disturbing as to my close-up shot I guess, but it's poverty just the same. i like how you superimposed your subject in amidst the subtle lighting.
this country has been through a lot. whatever worst scenario we have right now, we have no choice but to remain an optimist and hope that one day, everything will be better.
kahit sa quipo at ibang overpass my ganyan
ang galing ang pagkakuha mo, akala ko sa teatro yan
everywhere you look these days it seems puro poverty na lang ang makikita mo. i hope the philippines can recover soon
I hope that things improve there. Always the most vulnerable people take the hardest hits when troubles arise. It's horrible.
Your photos are striking. Thank you.
nakakaawa naman sila. haaay...buhay sa pilipinas.tsk.tsk.tsk. :(

I don't wanna sound political Dom but this post truly mirrors the hopelessness that some of our countrymen face today. really disheartening.
i always pass by this area and everytime i see those kids it really breaks my heart.:( kaya nga minsan i dont want to use the overpass... jaywalking na lang ako sa baba which i know is bad.hehehe.... haaay...:( nice shot:)
There's war here in east europe as well.. shame coz it's the olympics week...
heartbreaking. you wanna help but you know that these will be band air solutions. THAT was beautifully caught. snaps like that are "gold" pero mahirap kunan ng pics without hurrying up.baka kasi you get accused of taking advantage di ba? nice shot.marami din sa manila, sa overpass ng boni avenue.
A poignant picture of poverty. Pretty tragic sight, tsk. :(
ang lugar na madameng mahirap, means lugar na madameng tao walang pakealam.
such is the state of living nowadays. pity.
Yes it is true, everything here now is so expensive. For other people, they would say that my salary is fair enough however, it is still not enough since i spend everything in my townhouse at the same time send my niece to school.
ano kaya ang pwede nating maitulong sa mga kagaya nila?
hindi enough ang mga baryang naibibigay natin sa kanila..kailangan nila ng higit pa dun..
oo nga dong maraming dahilan ang hindi ko rin maintindihan..ayaw ko na sanang banggitin pa na pahirap na nang pahirap ang pinas..pero kailangan ng ganitong pagkakataon para gumising man lang tayo...sa ganitong paraan may mensahe na nakakarating.
Really a dramatic view. I hope things get better there and all the world over. We all need peace.
That is such a sad capture! haaaayyyy, i feel really bad everytime I see those scenarios:(
its hard to see images like this.. its like i fell guilty that i enjoy the best things in life.. i just hope and pray that things will be better in the coming years..
Down na nga ang economy, may guira pa sa Mindanao. Saan na ba tayo patutungo? Kahit anong abla ang gawin mo, bingi naman ang mga nasa pwesto o nagbibingi-bingihan.
hi, kuya dong! nalulungkot talaga ako pa nakakita ako ng ganito sa kalsada or flyover... it's sad that we have lots of homeless people here and that there's nothing much we can do about it. i hope the government starts to care.
Thats sad....that one picture says so much. I do hope that things would get better...
naantig ako sa shot...
opo.. sana nga sa sunod na mga araw uusad ang ating bansa hanggang wala na ang nanlilimos..
that's the problem with those people. they always say that their reason for doing all those violent stuff is for many people's sake. who are they kidding. it's just very sad that innocent people are involved because of their actions..
maraming ganyan ang nakakalat sa kalsada... at sa totoo lang nde ako nagbibigay ng barya sa kanila hanggat maaari kase pakiramdam ko kapag nagbigay ako eh kinukunsinti ko lang sila sa mga ginagawa nila... mas pinipili ko pang magbigay na lang ng pagkain kesa sa barya... at least alam ko kung anu binigay ko at nde ako manghuhula kung anu bibilin nila sa perang iaabot ko.
yung iba pa kase dyan eh masyadong bata na parang sila na kumakayod para sa pamilya nila... samantalang yung mga magulang nila eh walang ibang ginawa kundi magparami ng lahi... tsk! tsk!
This photo evokes feelings of sadness and loneliness. The human condition can be so heartless at times.
My Mobile Adventures *~*~*
well all I can say in war there's no winner..all of us will become loser..sad but true tsk!:(
when i was still working in cainta, pag hindi robinson ikot ang nasasakyan ko, kailangan kong dumaan ng overpass at ganyang eksena din ang makikita mo. madalas naman dun mga batang dun natutulog, minsan karton lang ang sapin minsan wala.. at kadalasan pa may mga hawak o katabing rugby. :(
at yung mga nasa mindanao, sayang yung ganda ng lugar dahil sa mga nangyayaring ganyan.. at kawawa talaga yung mga civilian na nadadamay.
So sad, with prices rising in almost every country. Prices of oil and gold are coming down, hopefully prices of our daily consumes will come down too.
hayyy...common sight 'to sa mga overpass dyan sa fuente dati pa...
Our country really needs to get better. We can't go on further with our current system. Congress and the government need to act with a sense of urgency.
This photo was heartbreaking.
The increasing unrest in some parts of Mindanao is very alarming. It's sad to think of the many affected families. I hope that the situation will improve for the sake of the people.
something new from you bro - street photography. minsan ikot tayo ng Quiapo :)
dong, ang ganda-ganda ng shot na yan. seryus.
