Devex’s photo of the week! This made my Friday :)

One of my former workmates, Yula, contacted me a few days  ago and asked if they could feature in the Global Development Briefing, a photo I took from Kalinga (northern part of the Philippines) as Devex’s photo of the week.  And, although I am kind of shy sharing my works with people, I said yes.  It is, after all, an opportunity to share what I got from my visit to the indigenous peoples communities in the Philippines in December 2012.

And, since my Thursday didn’t end quite well, getting a message from my friend, Joanna, that the feature was already up, set my Friday off to a good start. :)

Here’s a screenshot of what Devex published on their Global Development Briefing newsletter for August 8, 2013, with the photo I took:

I actually invite you to check their Photo of the Week album out.  I went through all of their featured photos and every one is quite amazing.  And, if you are interested to share your picture with them, you may send it to or post it on their Facebook wall.

(I do not know how to use Photoshop, and what I can only do are cropping, adjusting brightness and colors the way I remember it):


Thank you! And, in whatever space you’re in now, I hope that you get something from reading my articles.
