Photography: Rice harvest

No, these photos weren’t taken in the Mountain Province. They were taken in Antipolo, a mere 15 minutes from our house. The family of a photographer-friend “imported” an Ifugao family and resettled them in a two-hectare lot in Antipolo to test the viability of mountain-style rice farming in the hilly town of Antipolo. A photo shoot was organized last weekend to celebrate the first rice harvest.
