Unmindful of the Rain

She caught my attention, she was walking towards my direction.  I focused my camera on her and started clicking the shutter.  Then, I just realized both of us are unmindful of the rain but with a different purpose.

The rain started falling that day and I had the feeling of excitement. Rain is very rare in Qatar where I am working for about a decade now.  Excitement as I was longing to take some photos while raining.  I grabbed my camera and went outside and fortunately I got an interesting subject.

I saw this lady from afar heading towards me walking purposely seem unfazed by the rains. I took series of photos of her until she walked pass by me.   She has bags of clothes with her, I do not know where she is leading to but I should have thanked her I got some precious memory through her photos.

Working Hand and Hand

“Most of the time, I do not aim at how the subject will be projected but on how its story will be narrated.”

Back in 2016 together with some fellow members of Lopez Photography Club, we went to Calauag, Quezon for a sunrise shoot.
When the sun was up we took photos of our interest and I have noticed this couple, I supposed. I took series of photos of them while they proceed to go fishing.

Hasty

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.

Free Spirited

We were in Atimonan, Quezon (Philippines) on our way back home from a short visit to my father when I noticed some kids playing in the beach along the way.  I requested our driver to stop for a few minutes as I wanted to take some snaps.

I got off the van and approached the kids.  When they saw me that I have camera with me, they started to show off by jumping from the old dock on to the water.  It was a sight to enjoy but my challenge was, it was a gloomy day and they were positioned facing back where the somber sunlight is coming from.  I was supposed to request them to jump on the other side instead but I welcomed the challenge.  Well, what I really want to capture is the rawness of the scenes.
