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.
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.
