Rubber Boots, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

Another photo taken during visiting Alinmanguan village on Palawan Island. Alimanguan Village is a charming uncovered place on the west side of Palawan, close to San Vincente. When exploring the village with a drone and camera with my travel mate, we spotted many remarkable scenes. Drying rubber boots on on the fence is a super natural way of drying wet shoes completely forgotten in our hi-tech civilised modern world.
