The best photos can come from unexpected moments. Marlo saw this solitary tree in the middle of a ricefield while he was on the bus to Iloilo City. He said, “Without second thoughts, I decided to take this photo. Even if that meant getting off the bus in the middle of my trip and waiting for the next bus on the road. I just thought this moment was worth it.”
