Matthew Atkin photographs the outrigger canoes of Olango and Mactan

Here are some more of my brother’s stunning photos from the Far East. Today’s shots of mainly outrigger canoes – mostly what are known as bancas – come from Olango and Mactan in the Phillipines.

Click on the images for a much bigger and better view.

Thanks Matt!

    1. Thanks Bob – I forgot the name ‘banca’. They’re extraordinary craft: it seems to me they look like great insects sitting on the water.

      Something thing I find wonderful is that even in our modern connected-up world full of plastic, people persist in having strikingly different ideas about what a boat should look like.
