BASECO:A forsaken land

Responding from a phone call from residents of Baseco, a community nestled along the coastline of Manila Bay, I pack up my camera gear, and wearing my oversized slippers I started to brave the brewing storm. A village submerged in seawater and garbage welcomes me.

Impending storm

A resident sits on top of a washed out fresh water well near his hut

The raging sea at their doorstep

foamy whitewater

Children bathe in the filthy waters

residents scrounge for any useful object brought in by the sea

The beach

Welcome to Baseco


winds blow hard

Noodles,storm and a new day

An elemental Day has just passed.Emotions swirl and the mind's tides get caught in the upheaval of nature.It was a rather windy and rainy day for my emotions. Another morning finally arrives and I see Isis basking in a warm envelope of light while diving and slurping her way into a hot plate of noodles .
That's the perk i needed to pull me out of the doldrums of life and face the next sandstorm of life.

Dog and noodles
