    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Ready to go home.

    I went to Pasig City Postal Office to mail some legal documents to the US. It didn't take too much time to do it. Since I brought my camera gear with me (well, most of the time), I took a walk and see if I can spot something interesting. The school hours are almost over and there are children everywhere. I saw this father and daughter preparing themselves to go home. I didn't have much time to compose due to pedestrians roaming everywhere. At least I got 2 shots and here's one of them. Thank you very much for viewing.


    Ready to go home.


    Nikon D70, Nikon 18-70mm lens, ISO 200, f/8 at 1/100 second.

    Composition-wise, the only thing that I see that is a mite unfortunate is the juxtaposition of the girl's head with the car wheel, but you have done a good job of making her stand out and I only noticed that when I looked closely. I love your conversion, right down to the girl's shiny patent leather shoes. What a simple, but charming moment for you to capture. Is that her name she is wearing, and the name of her school, perhaps?

    Hey, Janis! So nice of you to drop by and view this. Yeah, I have to agree with you. I was really trying to get a better angle but with the influx of pedestrians bumping against me and blocking my shot I knew I had to press the shutter button soon. Yeah, that's her name alright at the carboard on her chest. It's a practice here specially every new school season so the teachers would know who they are. If I am not mistaken one classroom hold about 40 - 50 students so imagine the agony of knowing them all on the first month of class for these teachers. I'm really glad you're taking the time to post again. heureux de vous revoir, Janis.

    I just had an idea. . . maybe I can darken just that wheel hub so it won't compete with her face. I'll see what I can do
