My First Street Photos

Thursday, August 13, 2009

When I got out of the office this morning, I felt I had to take some shots on the street. Yes, I have not tackled street photography yet like I mentioned in my previous post. I was looking for a subject that could literally break my heart, because I was almost at home when I passed by these three kids sleeping in the corner streets of Cubao (a commercial location in Quezon City).

I see why there is drama in street photography, I've seen some shots taken by my peers of other spots in the metro that had poverty in context. This one however was right in front of me earlier this morning. I was overwhelmed by the chance and a little nervous that I might wake them up. I wouldn't wanna do that to these kids. I hope their parents know what they are doing. They probably are forcing these kids to either beg or sell things on the highway. I hope they remain safe. This is just sad.
