Photographer's Note

I had worked for a year in Australia, and decided to come back "the pretty way" via the Philippines, Hong Kong and Thailand. This photograph was made on the three-day stop-over in Manila. The Pagsanjan River (aka Bumbungan River) is justly famous, and an important tourist honeypot, largely as a result of the Pagsanjan Gorge, Rapids and waterfall, further upstream. But the river is still used as a transport link and the locals still fish its waters. Here is a fisherman in his dugout canoe, which presumably hasn't changed its design for millennia. At least I presume he was fishing: I can't see any nets or lines...
