Badjao little rascals!

took this days before I left Zamboanga. these kids were scampering when I pointed my lens at one of them, fighting for space. it's a tough life they have out there, but still these kids never fail to draw a smile in their faces.

Yes, sure, i trust you they have a harsh life, one can feel it, and yet as you say, they offer their pure smile. A touching portrait of abused innocence....

Great composition. I love how they are tightly compressed plus the color of the image gave proper atmosphere.
