    Exceptional photograph (and one the Philippine Travel Bureau should be interested in)! This is an instant favorite.

    Gorgeous photo, and excellent information.
    Terraces like these were built long ago, and were still in use in the Mexican Cordillera, but they were most often found on the alluvial fans, mostly narrow and steep in those areas. In the same area, there was a group of Okinawan families that moved to Mexico to settle. I was transcribing the census in that area, and got totally boggled with the Japanese names.
    The same kind of irrigation and planting structures are also found in mountainous areas in South America.
    (The Okinawans didn’t bring the structures with them.)

    This is priceless! I LOVE the way you placed the little girl within the context of her family livelihood and heritage. What a story this tells; it’s a documentary in a single glimpse. This is absolutely BRILLIANT work! I’m floored!

    So precious-with her oversized hat and flipflops, just adorable with the beautiful backdrop.
