LIVING ON WATER
All I can remember was riding the LRT with Joel H. Garcia bound to Baclaran to meet Larry Monserate Piojo. Joel tagged me to join them in graduation photo shoot of pre-school kids of UCCP United Church of Cavite headed by Pastor Jeff Gatdula. It is my privilege to be with the 2 talented photographers I know and of course to meet the Pastor Jeff and help the church in my little own way.
Before the shoot, we were treated to a delicious breakfast in one of the panciteria at Cavite City Public Market. The market was beside the seashore so we decided to shoot a little. The coastal area is more of a fishing village with stilt houses. The scene is not new as our country is an archipelago and our coastline is 5th longest in the world.
With the recent flooding in Metro Manila due to typhoons and monsoon rains, a world-renowned urban planner proposed construction of stilt and floating houses in the flood prone areas in the country. Sounds uncontemporary but the idea is logical and relevant response to the global warming and climate change.
