The Philippines in Pictures

Schoolgirls talking outside the Manila Cathedral. The Philippines is over 80% Catholic.

The urban poverty of the Philippines is overwhelming. This is a shot near the Pasig River.

The typhoon that hit last week, "Frank" killed over 300 people and flooded many areas. The damage is in the several billions. Frank hit my second day in the Philippines and caused a brownout. Here, a candle in my bathroom to light my way.
