I took this shot while riding a trolley / padyak coming from Pureza to Pandacan. Just like the sitcom series of the late King of Comedy, the photo shows the lives of the family living alongside the railroad tracks. I am very familiar with this kind of situation because I studied college in Polytechnic University of the Philippines. The main entrance of our campus is just few meters away from the tracks. I also have a friend who lives near the tracks, I actually experienced how their house shakes every time train passes by.
For me, it is not important what kind of house where you live in as long you as long as the family loves each other well and have a positive outlook on life.
