Unlike Japan, the Philippines appears to have nothing to do with the declining birthrate. No matter where you go in the Philippines, you will see many children playing on the streets. The two boys in the photo were no exception, playing on the street in Bontoc.
When they noticed my SLR camera, they stopped playing for a moment and came over to me. The boy on the right gave me a cheerful look, but the boy on the left looked a little quizzical. They were in the exact same situation, and both were interested in the camera, but their expressions were different.
