Been a long time out of circulation again,I was in a holiday with my family in my home country.Unfortunately i was not able to meet my friends who went back home too to meet some Treklens buddies (hope they did). Days are damn so fast on holidays spending quality times with my family, now i am back again here in Dubai. A friendly vendor i met at Mines view park , Baguio city, she came from Benguet Mopuntain province, she earns her living by selling sweets and native products. As a token of appreciation i bought some of her products after a couple of shots.

shot in Raw, contrast,curves, selective saturation, sharpened, converted to Jpeg, framed then resized for TL.
thanks fro passing by...................andres
