I was amazed by these children who were playing in a junked airplane on a dumpsite right smack in the middle of the city, in Paranaque, Philippines. They were totally oblivious of the hazards of their recreation.They climbed the place and run around the dumpsite barefoot. Some were in dirty tattered clothes and others were not wearing anything at all! But these never bothered them a bit and they just had fun like normal kids do. For a few moments, the awful reality they are living in ceased to exist and was totally forgotten.

IT slave and genuinely fond of photography during free time, love to capture street and visual story.
