Family -- this is an easy one, since 99% of the photos we take are of our families. But what's in a family? We've got our nuclear family -- Alfie, me, Pea, 3Po and Jammy. But we also have parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents.
In the Philippines, "family" is a fluid, ever-expanding term. My grandmother has 7 children, 29 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. Getting everyone together has become literally impossible. The photo above shows the most successful attempt so far, at my brother's wedding last December. We can barely fit in the frame!
