Photographer's Note

This was taken in North Bay Pier of Manila. Across the street from these houses are the piers for inter-island shipping. This area used to have 10 ffet wide sidwalks but it is now occupied by "squatters" or people with illegally built houses on someone's property. On this case, government property. It was about to rain when I took this picture. It is bright, but the light is so even that it does not cast deinitive shadows. The siding and roofs of the houses are all sort of materials they found in the dump yard that is about 5 to 8 blocks from this place. The streets are the children's playground. This place is considered as a tough neighborhood, meaning you can get mugged if you are a stranger to the place. I took this from inside a slow moving car.

PP Work: Adjust levels control; Increase saturation; Sharpen; Remove noise; Crop; Reduce size for posting.
