Portrait of an Old Woman working in Rice Fields - Philippines, Bagabag

Take a good look at this old Filipina's face; she has a lot to tell. No doubt she's spent years working hard in the rice fields of Bagabag, Luzon, Philippines. Along with the other women in her working group, she is picking young rice shoots, which will be later re-planted in different rice fields farther apart. Astute viewers may notice this is the same lady in my Gathering Rice Shoots photo I posted a while back, taken from above looking down (though you can't see her face in that photo).

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.
