Whenever somebody asks me what's my weakness in photography, I always answer photojournalism. Probably because I don't practice it a lot. But then our finals for DIGIPHO came and it was photojournalism. This photo is my favorite among all my shots. Please give some time and lemme share you his story~


This is Mang Boy. He's a garbage collector that wanders around the area of Pasay City, Philippines. He always gets my attention because of two dogs that always follows him. These two dogs are his and despite of his life status, he decided to adopt those two puppies instead of them being stray dogs. He tries his best to share some of his food to his dogs just to keep them alive but you know what? He told me that even though he sometimes don't feed them very much, these dogs never leave him and continues to follow him.

"They are the reason why I smile. They are the reason why I'm not alone. That's why I love them." - Mang Boy


When we were asked to do photojournalism, I thought the reason why we needed to do this was to expand our photography knowledge. True, but it was more than that. I'm starting to believe that the main reason why we were tasked to do this was to discover other people's story. Stories that are left ignored. Stories that can capture your heart. A story worth capturing by your camera. This is why I love photography.
