Pic of the Week 13

Pic of the Week-5427

Farmer plowing the rice field in an old school way. Shot in the region of Sorsogon.

Now that my computer is running again, I want to continue with another Pic of the Week. This one was taken when Glenda and I returned from our day trip to Paguriran Lagoon. The weather had been rather mediocre the whole day and the lagoon hence couldn’t unfold its true beauty. I actually didn’t picture while we were there. We made the best of it and still had a good time. On the way back with our motorbike we passed this farmer, stoically plowing his field with the help of his ox which is here called a carabao. I actually already saw the guy on the way there and told myself to definitely take this picture if he’ll still be there later. Fortunately he still was and I took the shot – the one and only on that day.

      Hi Peter, you are 100% right with that. That’s why I never went to Phuket although it is a favorite of German tourists as well. I might check out the caves but at the moment I just want to get some things done, arrange my visa for Indo, just relax and catch up on sleep which I have been missing lately. How are you doing? Winter arrived already in AUS?

    Nice photo. This reminds me growing up in the Philippines.

      Thanks, it was one of these rather spontaneous shots where I was at the right place at the right time. Driving around the countryside with a motorbike gives you more of those rare opportunities though. Thanks again!
