Photographer's Note

This is a functional bamboo bridge used daily by the locals. Bamboo is one of the common plants in the Philippines. It has numerous uses especially in the provinces where it is widely used to build nipa huts, which is a poor man's dwelling. Weaving the bamboo just like the flooring in this bridge makes it stronger. We don't have much financial resources for community infrastructure in the provinces, so locals has to be resourceful in making use of whatever material is available.

This photo was taken in Bohol, which is an island province of the Philippines located in the Central Visayas region. Its capital is Tagbilaran City. It is the 10th largest island in the country, securely nestled in the heart of the Visayas. To the west of Bohol is Cebu, to the northeast is the island of Leyte and to the south, across the Bohol Sea is Mindanao.

Bohol is a popular tourist destination with its beaches and resorts. The Chocolate Hills, numerous mounds of limestone formation, is the most popular attraction. The island of Panglao, located just southwest of Tagbilaran City, is home to some of the finest beaches in the country. The Philippine Tarsier, considered by some to be the smallest primate, is indigenous to the island.
