Yeah, as you mentioned, this thing called life can be one hell of a ride. Here, in this photo taken along Rizal Ave., underneath the LRT, a woman and boy ride in a pedicab which is pedaled by a man whose face looks as if aged beyond his years.
I think the man's face shows the weariness caused by hardship and life experiences in the streets of Manila. When I took this shot, I wondered where they were going, with those troubled expressions on their faces.
Like the sign behind them, goodwill towards others is something we strive for, although others may not show the same towards us -- exposing their greed, malice, and contempt. As I keep going, like this trio on the street, I try to hold onto some of that goodwill.
