Instagram picture

Yesterday in Manila we went the Smokie Mountain dump site.

After reviewing some of the images on our 22hr travel day, this one really stood out to me.

This image seemed to by very symbolic of @watts_of_love entering into a type of environment we had never experienced and delivering lights to people who have all but been forgotten and discarded with the trash they live off to survive everyday.

As my sister Nancy walks down the narrow alley you can see the old bed springs that many of the families living there use to create the walls of their homes.

Although visually interesting to photograph, the reality of what the bed springs are used for is painful to comprehend.
