Photographer's Note

This was taken in the neighbourhood where my aunt lives, as seen in this shot “By the Tracks.”

It was fiesta time for their barangay (the smallest municipal administrative unit). Along with copious amounts of food there were street games for the kids--like boxing ;)

This was taken yesterday around 2pm. The sun was high in the sky and it was intensely hot (the I'm-in-the-shade-with-my-shirt-off-but-sweat-is-still-dripping-off-my-fingers hot), photography-wise, not the best time. But who am I to resist organized street fighting?

At one point I saw them coming right my way, so I quickly moved my camera to a safe position--but forgot to move my face. Hahahaha! It was pretty funny.

For the shot, I decided that since it was so sunny and contrasty to just go with it. I even boosted it on PS for effect. Hope it works.
