Newspaper

This photo was shot at 7.45 am, but it did felt early because I left my house when it was dark. This photo shows an uncle reading thru the newspaper while sipping his favourite cup of coffee.

Lala Seller

While walking towards the market complex, I bumped into this lady that’s selling clams. I did know what she was selling until I zoomed in the photo during post-processing.
Compared to the other markets I’ve been to in other countries, we don’t have many of this “makeshift” stalls. Nevertheless, we should not discriminate them as there must be a reason why they exist.

Bun Dau Shop – Fermented Shrimp Noodle

Another throwback weekend – where I am looking at my crossing bridges photo from back in 2006!

The photo above is a shot from the road side where I took a photo of Bun Dau shop, which means (based on google as fermented shrimp noodle!).

I never tried this dish, but what intrigues me is that I managed to take this photo despite not having an eye for street photography. In fact, during this period, I am more interested in shooting portraits and as what I’ve mentioned earlier, my trip was some what wasted because I am just focused on shooting headshots, rather than shooting a “story-like” photo.

This photo is probably one my first few photo that I start indulge in street photography. Yes – I’ve been doing a lot of street shoots but to be honest, I am not good at it until Eddie (friend from Singapore) said that I need to have a story. Which is then how I started thinking on how I should be shooting street.

Things has changed, and now I am a far better photographer (and picky one too!).In fact there are times when I go out for a walk and not shoot anything (lol). But I guess, that’s part and parcel of street shoot.
