Filipino Life On The Street

35mmStreet.com.DSCF5835-EditI like the way people hang around in hot countries. Everything slows, nobody’s in a rush. Most people on UK streets are heading somewhere or shopping, but people don’t hang around on street corners, just living their lives, they’re somewhere between A and B. They’re in Transit.

I like street photography that has hidden gems that are not always visible at first glance. In the shot above, your eye immediately goes to the girl, but there’s more to it.

  2. I love the way the figure top right in #1 is framed, disjointed and isolated from the rest of the scene, but still looking over his shoulder towards camera.
