Photographer's Note

She's an Ifugao old woman, age around 85-90 years old. She spends her day sitting at the Banaue Rice Terraces Viewpoint area making beads (similar to what she's wearing). The beads will be sold later at the small stores surrounding the place. With her wearing her native clothes, she's one of the attractions in the area.

Sights like her are getting more rare everyday as the younger generation of Ifugao children usually don't wear their native attires anymore.

This is my 1st post about Banaue, its people and the rice terraces. Have been to the place many times before (I spent my childhood days in Ifugao, where my mother worked then), but seldom took photos. I visited the place again last month and snapped a few to share here in TE. Will post more in the future.
