Family Snapshot

One of the most endearing features of Filipinos is [in my opinion] that they are always open to people, even strangers. They do not assume by default that a new face necessarily masks hostile and sinister motives. They are quick to smile and communicate. Of all the people I tried to strike a conversation with, I found myself not only welcomed but drawn into their inner circle.  


Seen here are various family members: fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, babies, brothers and sisters, even the jeepney behind that brought them to the picnic spot.

We clearly have much to learn from this culture, then, Ayush. I am loving seeing it through your eyes.

Its a shame that the natural trust get stepped on so many times. In my books, this is one of the nations that suffer because of the greed of others.
A great picture that does portray the relaxed way that they accept the photo being taken.
Filipinos, even in adversity, always the ready smile. Nice capture
Would that the whole world got along together like this!
That is a good trait, Ayush, much like it was in the Canada I grew up in. The world has changed so much since then and become much more paranoid.
a far cry from what you find in many places. I hope they get to see this picture

Sounds like the culture is very different our own. The older generation here seemed happier to accept strangers but I'm not so sure with your people. Perhaps its just perception.
This is a really fine shot of this lovely family group Ayush.
Very nice capture. A very warm and human picture.
Wonderful candid capture Ayush!
That is a sweet shot.
