" I have to buy every Kerosene tanks that are available from my supplier and transport them to my store. I know this is a lot but I cannot afford to loose my customers who buys them."

This man who walks in a flooded road suddenly looked at me before I clicked my camera. I was able to interview him during my documentary of flood disaster in Pasig City , Philippines.

Jobeth Antonio , thanks for the SPOTLIGHT!!

    HI Dan , yes it is unfortunate but I'm inspired of sharing the news to people.
    HI Anieszka, thanks for your comment!
    Yes Joan , this may not be the perfect image of happiness but sure is a reality of LIFE during a disaster, and many people tends to buy more goods.

    I love how the shadows in the water act to frame the man and his tanks. The shadows also mirror the snaking lines of the tanks (beautiful). The small opening in the shadows at the top, where he has passed through, and the lack of shadow at the bottom of the photo where he is heading, underscore his passing through. It's a very powerful photo. Awesome job here!

    I picture this image a lot! Like he man is icon of Jesus Christ and the tanks are his people, trying to save from their sins. Just a thought.
