Hi, my name is Juvenile Melchor Bacolcol. I’m an amateur photographer from Philippines. “Framed Journey Series 1” is a collection of fresh and intimate encounters of my journey from Mindanao. Whenever I can’t bring my dslr camera, I try to not miss beautiful scenes by just using my iPhone. These series is unplanned. Our first goal when we visited the place was mainly to buy food. But the scenery strikes me and urged me to bring out my phone and capture the moments.

It was early morning and that was one motivation for me. I witnessed how people worked early in the morning and how the sunrise makes everything beautiful. Plus when every store is just opening up, every piece of goods that are selling is fresh and vibrant.
