  • Shutterbug1998 April 23rd, 2012 6:03 PM

    Image #8 reminds me of little boxes on the hillside and they’re all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same.

    to everyone who asked: the shoes are vintage 1940s Filipino shoes!

  • SuzieSu May 3rd, 2012 3:59 PM

    I was browsing through these pictures and realised I was born in the little hamlet just in the distance of the bus shelter picture no. 8 and went to the local primary school. Obviously I will not say where this is as you still live here, but thank you for taking such amazing pictures!

    • Eleanor May 10th, 2012 3:49 PM

      Wow, really?! What a small world! I wonder if we’ve met without even realising…
