Photographer's Note

In a back alley within the city of Manila, life in poor conditions goes on. These two girls watch as many below pass by. Below them is a simple stop spot for locals seeking a place to eat. It is served from poor street vendors in makeshift huts. Children run and play, mother's stand with babies, grandma's sit on the ground and chat - all dressed in simple rags, but with great smiles, some laughing, all producing a life show for these two spectators who watch from their safe sport one floor above. There is no window. Their perch rests on stilts and broken concrete worn by weather and time. Older sister is below eating, dressed in school uniform, ready for a day at school. They watch her with rather blank faces - being good and quiet - perhaps longing for their chance to grow a little and take the advanture out as big sister has.
