12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Where the wild things are

Right before sunset, the rain cleared up, a whisper of peach glow flickers at the horizon. All the children took the opportunity to run like the wild things before dinner time. Taken on the beach of Bacolod, Philippines. These children lives in one of the most impoverished slum in the Philippines. So, instead of playing games on their iPad, they chase each other on the beach and have so much fun, as if they're in the mystical land with the wild things.
