- Global Perspectives
Ever wondered what our communities are like without the normal hustle and bustle of everyday life? Without the sounds of laughter, cries, footsteps, vehicles, pushcarts, peddlers, shouting, dogs barking, roosters crowing, horns honking, conversations, basketball games, loud music, flowing creeks and so on?
Allow me to take a breather from sharing images of faces, human activity and busy streets by showing this mix of still-life photos from Quezon City, Philippines. These moments make me think more of what could happen, before or after, rather than what is currently taking place. Here are the moments in between. Here are signs of life in waiting.
Most of these images seemed void of activity, but they are indicators of life nonetheless. And like any life, it is worth taking care of and supporting in order to grow. Thanks to CI and its advocates, waiting becomes less agonizing and difficult for the families in Quezon City's poor communities. Waiting is not in vain for them because now that they are sponsored, things are taking a turn for the better.
