I was waiting for my friend to finish with her business at a printing shop when I decided to go outside and try to take a photo. This was taken at Montilla Boulevard, just across SJIT (Saint Joseph Institute of Technology). I felt a bit frustrated that I wasn't able to take a photo of the school earlier when there was still light.

I wonder where this couple is going with their luggage. They had been standing there for a while while I was busy taking pictures.

I understand your frustration. What is it about looking for a good photo moment and not finding any.. and finding one when you don't have a camera with you? Or it's already dark..? or you're inside a speeding jeepney and seeing that moment pass away?

As a photojournalist used to tell me, "Capture that moment quick!"

Well done.
The tail lights of the passing cars really adds drama to this shot.

I like your candid and relaxed atmosphere of your yesteday's post, Layrayski. It's so revealing of the "character" of your city.

As for today's post, those people waiting for ... (?) adds a nice element to the photo.

BTW, I like the new design of your blog too.

Oh, and thanks for letting me know what the Beetle is called in Tagalog. Now I learn more.

i do hope the couple had a place to stay for the night. i'm worried about them.

i like the new look.

Layrayski said...

I really should'nt have waited, huh? I should've just grabbed the first chance I got. Anyway its not a big deal the building is always there hehehe

thank you Eric =)

Glad you like the darkness. I worried that it might've been too dark. I changed the layout because my photo would've fit the old template.

Erik-- thank you =)It is revealing isn't it?

the dong-- Hehe did you stay near this street when you were here?

kayni-- I was worried about them too. They looked like they have been traveling a lot-- wanting to go home.

I like how you got everything so red!

Kawawa naman yung dalawa. Madalang ang taxi?

Layrayski said...

Oo. Hilda taxi in Butuan is a luxury we don't often use. We usually use tricycle, multicab, jeepneys. Maybe they're waiting for someone to come fetch them home...
