This man is very elusive. Every time he sees camera pointing at him, he will definitely shift his direction or he will hide his face by any means. Then I was given a chance, after almost 30 minutes of roaming around, I bumped into him again but I pretended I was not interested in taking his photo at all. He stopped at one of the stores and went inside and I took few more steps away. The alley is a bit dark so I stayed in one corner where he can not notice me immediately.
After 3 minutes of waiting he came out of the store and there I started clicking the shutter button until he made a turn. I guess, a better composition came out with his silhouette.

After more than a decade, I set foot on my hometown’s public market again. I was not able to roam around as my purpose was to purchase food for our 2-day stay. I just took photos of the vendors from whom we bought meat and fish thinking that I can still come back the following day. Unfortunately, time did not permit me. Nevertheless, I am happy with the outcome of these few photos.
My first try of street photography back in August, 2013.
How many times I have thought of doing this, but could not find the guts to do it specially when you are in the place where there are prohibitions and restrictions. Part of me is telling to do it and the other part is shutting me off.
But finally, I gave it a try.
