The day before All Souls Day
“So, what are you going to do with these pictures?”
(I often get asked why I take pictures… I have a voluminous collection of snaps in my iphone, which I carry around while my “formal” camera is in repair. I just see something I like, and then, I see possible stories in my head because of it. Or, in some way, I am reminded of something that happened to me…it could actually be anything. The following pictures are examples.)
Gentleman in yellow. October 30, 2016. (Do you know how, when someone looks up and points at the sky, you immediately want to look up and see what it was he was pointing at? Well, this was what I felt when I saw this person staring at something in the sky behind me. I actually never got to ask him what it was, but that look on his face was interesting enough.
It was just a big red dump truck, really eye-catching. You couldn’t miss it.
Flowers in ready for November 1 (which is a National Holiday for us here in the Philippines.
The theme for the afternoon was yellow.
Yellow #2 Girl in a yellow t-shirt, waiting for the florist’s version of ikebana.l
Yellow #3. I saw her while walking down the street to get to the pop-up flower stalls near the public market. She wore a gold-colored top, and a tiny yellow umbrella, which I doubt provided a lot of reprieve from the sun. I think she probably was squinting, more than the fact that she was mad at me. 🙂
