I used this photo to illustrate a point during a recent talk in Manila.
Curiosity is a hallmark of a great editorial photographer.
He must see the world as a constant source of wonder, much like a child who sees everything for the first time."
He must also be there when serendipity happens. And he must have the technical skill to capture that fleeting moment.
That's me way back in 1983, photographed by my mother at the old family farm in Batangas.
This photo won the grand prize in a photo competition. Yup, the mom's an award-winning photographer :)
