Behind the Lens

She sits in the middle of a mangrove forest. Her branches look crooked and tired; this old tree bends humbly at the foot of the mountain. I lift my camera and click once, to pay homage before she succumbs to decay.

Busay is Waray for waterfall. After two unsuccessful attempts in searching for one near Tacloban, I finally happened upon Kandongos. It appeared like an apparition; and although the water was not as voluminous as it should have been (it had been a dry week, and the water was barely trickling) the sound of water was music to the ears. Walking kilometer after kilometer in the middle of nowhere does pay off.

Caibaan. Babatngon. Kandongos.
