Daily Inspiration #226 by Manuel Domes

Dear Steve,

Thanks for your great website, and also for notifying the participants to the Leica Contest that their submissions were received — not to be expected at 1300+ entries 🙂 While we’re at it, I would like to submit 3 pictures for your consideration in the Daily Inspiration category.

“Small scale mining in Dinagat”

These pictures show the work of artisinal miners in Dinagat Island, Philippines. These miners make a very modest living by extracting chromite using some basic tools and, most importantly, their own hands.

Taken with a Leica M8.

  1. Wonderful shots! I am also from the Philippines and hopefully next year I will get the opportunity to shoot it as well. I’m very excited about it.

  2. Really impressive photographs, I love the tones and contrast you’ve achieved in your conversion. Stunning shots! Superb Daily Inspiration!

  3. Great photos! I like the motion element of the 3rd photo. I’m from the Philippines and hope to cover something similar to your images. Cheers!
