Photographer's Note

This was taken at the MegaMall bus stop in Ortigas along with my TL pics: Legs and Shadows and Safety First.

Bus prices are slated to rise in Manila on the last Sunday of this month (saw it on the news this morning before work :) This is due to the continually rising fuel costs in the country. Currently diesel prices are around P28/L. Since my arrival in Feb, prices have gone up 3 or 4 times (P0.25 rise each time if I remember correctly) and this has angered motorists and consumers across the country.

As for this photo, I decided to shoot around a bus stop because I liked the different colours of buses and the diverse group of people. There's something in particular about this shot I like, but find hard to actually verbalize.

I'm constantly surprised by how easy it is to take pics here in the Philippines. Considering that I was weaving and maneuvering and shooting pics of strangers in a crowded bus stop I thought that I would be hassled, but nope. I do get alot of people asking me what publication they'll be in though!
