"There's always a reason to smile. You just have to find it."
This is Tatay Romeo. "Tatay" is our native word for "Father" or "Dad". He is a good friend of mine who sells cooked food in our area. I took this photo of him when I went to his store to buy food because I was too lazy to prepare lunch for myself and my camera was with me that time.
He's probably one of the best role models that I know - that no matter what life throws at you, you need to stand up, strap on a pair and face it. And don't forget to smile because life will always try and kick you in the nuts. I will start adding some of my photography pieces to my gallery. Photomanipulation is my 2nd hobby but potrait photography has been and will always be my first love
