Who was peeping at whom?
We were photographing the old town of Silay in Negros Occ. when this gentleman caught my attention. Let's call him Tom. I saw him first, enjoying a cup of coffee while reading his morning paper. He must have sensed me standing outside the window, and after giving me a dismissive glance, returned to his morning paper. It was then that I knew I got him. I took a few steps back and framed my shot, but waited for the decisive moment when he would look up again. And waited. And waited. Until he finally did. Gotcha. I knew Tom would peep again, but after looking at what I caught, the peeping Tom could also have been me. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: When you do street photography, your subject may or may not cooperate. They may smile and wait for you to shoot, or wave you off with your pride in tow. Yet within limits, persistence has its rewards. He broke out into a smile knowing I had caught him. And I the same, as I quickly made my exit.)
But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (firstname.lastname@example.org), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers. Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas. No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr.
