    John Carlo Avelida, a student of the City College of Tagaytay shares his photo titled “City of the Golden Sunrise” taken in Borongan City, Samar.

    From mobile photography enthusiast and hobbyist Kenneth Cupcupin is the night photo, “Fun and Rides.” He shares: “Capturing landscapes day and night, astrophotography, falls, and sunsets are my point of interest in photography. I’ve been doing mobile photography for two years now because I really believe that capturing interesting and stunning subjects and images is not limited with DSLR or mirrorless cameras. Today’s technology, most especially mobile phone camera can now compete with those high-range DSLR’s images.”

    Tenshi Leoraine Capili, a grade 7 student of the San Jose National High School in Laguna sent in the group photo of more than a dozen grasshoppers on a leaf. She titled the photo “Waiting for Orders.”

    Shayne Figuroa shares an untitled photo of her niece, Trisha Faith Villoso which she took during a family trip to Lake Marugo in Tapaz,Capiz. “I usually take photos of the places we’ve been to, and my niece has always been my favorite subject,” writes Shayne. “She’s naturally photogenic for me. Photography interests me a lot because it defines you as a person—who you are and the way you see/ perceive things, relatable on how you take photos.”

    The photo, “Dreamweavers” comes from Bert Andone. His photo description reads: “T’nalak is a weaving tradition of T’boli people of South Cotabato. It is an artform perfected over decades by T’boli women called dreamweavers. The patterns of the T’nalak cloth are inspired by their dreams and are highly valued.”

    Glenn Fabricante contributed the photo, “Barbie & Marmalade.” He writes: “Sending you this photo of “Barbie & Marmalade,” a mixed breed of 50 percent golden retriever, sharpei, and 50 percent askal. One thing is for sure, she loves the beach, friendly and super loving to her master/mother Barbie. Photo taken in Liwliwa, San Felipe, Zambales.”

    From Jason Pintang is “Unconditional Love.” His description reads: “Her granddaughter fell asleep on her shoulder while lola sang a beautiful lullaby.”

    Mark Jayson Cruz took his photo titled “God’s Hidden Treasure” at the island of Cresta De Gallo in Romblon. He writes about travelling to the island: “We went to Sibuyan for one week and it was one of the most unforgettable trips I have ever had. I love the beach and I have been to a lot of them but Cresta De Gallo or Isla De Gallo as the locals call it is incomparable. There are no establishments, no electricity, no houses or hotels to stay in but its beauty is enough for you to stay. From Cajiodiocan it takes almost two hours to get to Isla De Gallo by boat. You have to bring everything: food, water, garbage bags (please do not leave your garbage there). This is literally beach heaven. The water is pristine blue. It is really beautiful island with pristine white sandy beach. Perfect time to visit is early before 6 a.m. so you can explore around the island. Make sure you have full battery on your camera or cellophane and other things like medical kit, bottled water, snacks.”

    Mhikie Manzanares sent in the untitled photo of a young boy and a girl writing with chalk on a road as cars pass by.  He writes: “This was taken in Quiapo. These kids were playing together with the road as their giant blackboard, careless and free.”

    And from Ronnel Canlubo is “Mandaragat.” His photo caption reads: “Ang batang mas pinili ang magbanat ng buto kesa ang pag-aaral. Sa hirap ng buhay ay naisipan na agad ng batang mandaragat ang magtrabaho para sa pamilya.”
