Lean on me

Uploaded: June 04, 2008


Took this photo of kids swimming not far from their houses on stilts by the sea. The kids had this natural bonding that when I asked them to come closer, the oldest informed me the water gets deeper from where I was. So I told them to move back. He instead carried his younger companion to safety. It was a sweet gesture.

Hi Jojie,
This is a good one :) I smiled when I saw the photo. Maybe because I can relate to the kids. Ligo din ako dati sa Roxas Blvd after cutting classes lol
Anyway, a deserving photo. Di ko pa nasisilip yung first pero panalo sakin to =) #6218260
