I passed several men on the road making their way to work in the fields. They were very polite and friendly. I asked if I could take their portrait and some gladly obliged. As a child when we traveled to Batangas during the summer, I remember seeing only glimpses of hardworking men and women from the car window dotting the fields along the provincial roads. Somehow, making these portraits is my small gesture of honoring them and the work they do in their daily lives.
