Photographer's Note

Some time in the mid 90's, a series of typhoons struck Manila. One portion of my family's farm was badly hit, and as you see here in this pic, all the mango trees are kneeling! It is an awesome sight, and I decided to take advantage of these beauties by putting an overlook with benches where people can zen themselves out just staring at the girthy mangoes. The place gets visited by a lot of birds, some of which have taken residence there or atop a nearby bamboo grove.
