but is really a stolen shot.
She was doing some laundry
with face looking down on the basin
when I called to her as if I wanted something
but only to make her look in my direction
where my tablet is ready to capture the moment.
Then I took the shot
not knowing if it was a good one.
the single shot is great and amazing.
The shot of a young Filipina
in a modern world of great technological advancements
where the future doesn't guarantee her
a good and comfortable life.
Her young face reflects the struggles
she still has to overcome.
Her innocence hungers for learning and knowledge
in a world full of complexities and mysteries.
If she is determined and persistent,
then she can fulfill her dreams
but if she quits and gives up,
then she will go nowhere.
