There is always a chance of coming home empty handed, especially with only 1 hour to spare and having no idea on where to go. Thankfully it’s not today.
I got here just at the right time before they dispersed. There were more of them when I drove by, and I asked them to stay for a moment for a photograph.
I found myself chatting with the store owner and another resident about the upcoming elections, and then the topic went to what I do with the photos I take. They told me to check out the open playground where there might be some things that will interest me, of which I wasn’t really keen on doing until I saw a man carrying his dog and walking through the narrow pathway leading to the sea wall.
I am glad that I saw them otherwise I would not have seen this lovely place.
The chain link fence, the clothes hanging out to dry, the kids jumping into the water…. just perfect.
People always ask me about what I do with the photos, and this is the first time I have been asked to write down the address for this website. It feels very nice when people become genuinely curious about what I do, and I can safely say that it is the same feeling they get whenever I become interested in what they are doing, even if it is something very ordinary and mundane.
