Philippines

Only four photos during a three week vacation on the Philippines? That's because we stayed almost all the time in our tourists reservation (El Dorado Beach Resort on Negros). The most photos were made under water because neither the landscape nor the city Dumaguete were very targets I like and I had a bad feeling taking pictures of people who could work all their life and even then not have enough money to buy the camera that would have shot them. Crazy world! January 2004 to November 2009, 31 Images.

Image 1/31: Fishing People

Fishing people at dawn, right in front of the dive base. At least they don't fish here with dynamite like almost everywhere on the Philippines. Dynamite fishing does not only destroy the whole underwater world, it also destroys a possible important incoming of the Philippines: dive tourism.

Image 3/31: Beach

Dive tourists and native people share one beach. According to rumours the people in the village think that since the white people dive here the fishes have gone ... they don't know the link between destroying corals with nets and dynamite and decreasing fish stock.
