    Jervie Lazaro, a system developer and concurrently a corporate development officer in a private company shares his photo, “Man on Wheels.” Jervie writes that he has found photography to be a stress reliever given the load in his office. “I use photography to relax myself and enjoy life. Also, to my friends, I found photography as a medium to express my thoughts, emotions, and how I feel for a certain subject.”

    From Juan Deveraturda of Subic, Zambales is “The Fisherman of La Paz,” a silhouette shot of a fisherman in Brgy. La Paz, San Narciso, Zambales. “I’ve always loved to shoot street photos where people are captured in their most ‘unguarded’ and candid moments,” shares Juan.

    Rodel Bartolome Jr. of Nalook, Kalibo, Aklan sent in “Innocence,” a portrait photo of his eight-month-old niece, Julia Milan. “Makikita po talaga natin ang ka-inosentihan sa mata ng bata,” he writes.

    The photo titled “Palayan” comes from Wendel Samodio. His description reads: “Golden-hour shot beside the backyard; it makes us feel the beauty of nature outside the Metro.”

    Karl Danielle Carada, a high school student at the Laguna State Polytechnic University–San Pablo City contributed the portrait photo, “Sparkle.”

    From Katrina Diesta is an untitled photo of a young street performer carrying a Madonna and child statue at a fiesta dance performance.

    Jomarie Romaquin submitted the photo titled “Pag Aeaw-aeaw.” Jomarie says that the title is an Aklanon term which means “welcoming.” The photo is a reenactment of the Banga Crossing massacre perpetuated by the Japanese Imperial Forces during the Second World War.

    Japol Oroña sent in “Sandcastle Making on the Beach.” His comment reads: “As a kid, I believe that a day on the beach will not be complete without building or creating a sandcastle.”

    Angelyn Rose Guamos shares an untitled close up photo of sunflowers taken with her smartphone in Baguio.

    And from Erald Jeo Jupista is an untitled reflection photo of a young boy jumping from a public structure as his companions look on.
