Photographer's Note

Sea gypsies (Badjaos) preparing for work, early morning, Cebu, Philippines.

They are actually waiting for cruise ships and ferries to arrive at the wharf - for tourists to throw coins to the water so they can dive for them.

For close-up photos of the Badjaos, please go to cunejo200's portfolio. Some of his earlier postings are the most remarkable photographic records of the displaced Badjaos I have seen. One example is this one.

The Badjaos used to live in Mindanao in Southern Philippines.
