Photographer's Note

When I was in the province of Nueva Vizcaya, I was lucky to find farmers in the process of
threshing (separating the grains from the stem) their harvested rice crop.

Inorder to undertand this threshing activity better, here's a brief summary:
The 2 boys at extreme left will hand over the harvested crops to the man in red. 'Red man' is responsible for placing the crops into the thresher. The thresher will then separate the grains from the stems.

The stems can be seen being shot out from the thresher into the air, going into an area at the right, where more farmers will pile them up to be burned later.

The grains, on the other hand, will come out from a separate outlet (which unfortunately is blocked by the man in blue). The grains will be placed in sacks, and when the sack is full, 'blue man' will pass the sack to another farmer, who can be seen sewing up the sack.

It's a team effort where everybody - boys, men and women- participate. The harder jobs are handled by the men and boys at the left, while the women handle the easier job (at the right).

I think that's all I have to say for this pic. :)
