Ifugao feet


I took this shot a year ago, on a rickety jeepney ride from Bontoc to Sagada. They belonged to an Ifugao woman. She was ferrying two bags of cement from the city to her place somewhere up in that mountain road.

What a sturdy pair of feet! I thought. How many miles might they have travelled? Up and down, up and down, through rocky, dusty paths, and always bare. I thought they were beautiful feet, a little like mine, though mine are not as wide.

The Ifugao woman had a beautiful smile, too. Very sweet.
