    This was photographed at was once a very busy and bustling "Fish Shed" for the city of Tacloban that serviced most of the seafood requirement of Eastern Visayas. After nearly 7 months the people who worked there are building back and going back to business as usual.

    "Children are the hands by which we take hold of heaven" by alabang, on Flickr

    Neighbourhood kids playing before a beached cargo ship in Rawis, Anibong, Tacloban City.

    They appeared to have adjusted to the fact that boats run aground are the new normal. To me it looks like it's the set to the TV program "Lost".

    Yes, the center watermark is distracting but I don't want my photo stolen.

    During and after the aftermath of Cat 5 Typhoon Haiyan (Philippine name: Yolanda) it served as a refuge for survivors.

    This photo of the Tacloban Astrodome taken on May 27, 2014 is perhaps the last one of the interior before the fire that hit it on May 29, 2014.

    Tanauan Tent City by alabang, on Flickr

    Tanauan National High School is the site of the Tent City of Tanauan. Some 10,000 people live here and other close by areas for the past 7 months after November's Typhoon Haiyan while waiting for their permanent housing to be completed.

    The heat index on the day I photographed this was at 41C or 106F.

    The common worry amongst the people living here is the incoming typhoon season that may yield another typhoon like Haiyan/Yolanda.

    Two-spot red snapper (Lutjanus bohar) by alabang, on Flickr

    This Two-spot red snapper, Lutjanus bohar (local name "Maya-maya") is a regular catch at the Tacloban Fish Shed. I was told that this snapper is estimated to be about 5kg and that in bulk price it sells for $2.27/lbs.

    If I had a proper kitchen to work in I would've bought this fish outright and make lunch!
