The look of hope over a few pieces of lottery tickets.
Ambush is s good technique to use in Street Photography. From a distance to the right I spotted this cyclist heading this way. Figuring the building’s entrance to be a good frame, I did a quick focus there and waited. Clicked.
I can’t remember the last time I used a public telephone. This scene struck a strong nostalgic nerve in me. It was an era replaced by the mobile phone. Still, certain fundamental remains. Call home.
I’m part of a generation where a considerable amount of time is spent looking at a screen. I embrace it, this thing called the digital age. I’ve learned so much about life and our world this way. But ever so often, when I do take my face off the screen, the lessons I observed in real life proved so much more valuable. Remember to look up – I’m here, I’m present and I’m involved in the people and things important to me.
They push, they shove and they may even get rough. But if someone gets in the way of either you’ll see just how quickly they’ll unite. Sibling rivalry is just hard to explain.
I was totally mesmerised by this character. I didn’t know what intrigued me more, the mysterious all-concealing headgear or the sci-fi-like whatever he was holding. I heard myself saying I need to take a photo just in case he shoots me with that weapon and whatever is flesh on me disintegrated into powder. My camera will then hold proof that I’ve encountered someone other-worldly. Disappointingly, nothing happened as I passed. Not even a “take me to your leader”. Obviously he came in peace.
Chinese characters depict “the arrival of a pleasant year”. Shop owner needed some assurance. Keep the faith, sir.
Photogenic happens when you strike an interesting pose without knowing you are posing in the first place.
Boy asked for his photo to be taken. How rare is that? ‘Twas a good day for Street Photography.
Bak Kwa is a popular Chinese delicacy in Singapore of barbecued pork slices. They are insanely tasty and are commonly bought during Chinese New Year occasions. I wish I could depict the incredible aroma that surrounded this photo.
