I took this shot in Banaue about a year after the 1990 killer earthquake shook northern luzon. An Australian based firm that established a global positioning system (GPS) in the Philippines had to reposition its marker points particularly in Barangay Digdig of Nueva Viscaya where an earth movement was recorded at about three meters. I used Kodak Ecktachrome.



Aside from the kilometric rice terraces that they carve in mountain slopes for centuries, another engineering marvel that the Ifugaos can truly be proud of is their carpentry method of constructing a house that uses no nails or metal bolts.
