The story behind the fraction of that shot
What you see in this photo is the stunning beauty of Honda Bay. The crystal clear water, the different layers of blue that fill the sky, the banka painted with vibrant colors, and so on. What you don’t see, but what this photo does reflect is the impersonal experience most tourists will have with the boat staff. Well, true that but also understandable since it is just their work: ‘Tourists come and go’. And we were pretty much being the tourist thay day. Not bad, but still, we prefer the more cultural connection with the places we visit. By the way don’t think the boat staff is impersonal because most Filipino people are the ones wearing a smile ready for you!
