Real men are not afraid to wear pink shirts (or any similar colors)
This is my fave day of the work week so I guess I can post one of my fave shots, which doesn't usually translate to what is popular. For one thing, the colors are weird. And the horizon is skewed --maybe so the lady at the store can tip the scale. Heh. If I have shown this to a photography instructor, I would immediately get an F.
Taken late last year when I traveled back to the Philippines. It was on a crowded market place. With my normal lens, I must have been standing about 10 feet in front of the old man when I took his picture. No flash, just outside light. I love this shot because the man appeared to be looking past me. It's as though at that moment I was invisible to him. Maybe I was. My theory is you keep doing street photography and eventually even while wearing a Walrus costume you'll be inconspicuous like the vegetables in this image. Koo-koo-koo-chew.
I recall the market that day was a trip. Walking around with a DLSR camera hanging on my neck was sure to get attention at this small rural town. Every time I pointed the camera to shoot at someone, other people would try to warn my subject, "hey you're going to be on Facebook!" I love it.
Hope you enjoy.
The Egg man says, "Cheers!"
Glenn: Hey, isn't that Raman, and what's he doing in the Philippines?
Juzno: Raman was following Lady Gaga on her worldwide tour but all he got was a Seattle's Best T-Shirt.
Glenn: Okay, that explains his expression.
