These are images from around my grandmother’s place in Manila.

It’s barangay (“village/neighbourhood” in Tagalog) election time so the posters are out. I don’t know about you, but they look like “Wanted” posters to me–either that or photos of the dead…

The dog at my grandma’s house has gone “missing,” so now they have a cat guarding the door in his place!

My nephew and a neighbour in my grandma’s alley.

A girl walking out towards the street (again in the alley where my grandma lives). Election posters on the right.

A neighbour hanging the laundry.

This is the slightly wider alley where my grandmother’s alley exits. The man to the right is Calo who is running for office (see poster to the left).
