15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
The Abandoned Nipa Hut

I was abandoned in the wilderness and still so proud of great memories I shared with those who enjoyed the moments of the old days. I miss the laughter of children playing around during the day; the variety stories of adults and their intimacies at night when only stars and the moon that shine upon us; the lunches they shared and the empty bottles of alcohol that still linger around me. Now that I am the only thing of the past, not very useful as I was, here… standing alone.
