Rest




The Rizal Boulevard in Dumaguete City is indeed a great place to relax and contemplate. Since it's a favorite spot of locals and tourists alike, there were also people who earns a living along the boulevard by selling foods.

My brother and I were waiting for our companions while they shop at the mall. He and I walked back to the boulevard where our service was parked, and while waiting, I spotted these two kids, probably siblings. They're selling some finger foods, and tired as they are, they stopped for a while to rest. The brother was actually dancing and it was a sweet scene to look at - kids still having fun even though they had to help their parents by working so early in their lives.

Hello Jenn,

This is a very nice shot! On the other hand, there are lots of working kids also in my country.

Have a nice day,

Great shot, I love the guy dancing. I hope he keeps that spirit as he gets older...a hard life but kids somehow manage to find enjoyment in small moments.
