Streets of the Philippines

“A street that you have never visited is a book that you have never read! You never know what you are missing! – Mehmet Murat Ildan

Walking the streets of the Philippines is fun and exciting. It’s not hard to take shots of people unaware… whether it be the working class people, students, teachers, people cleaning the streets, people shopping or even just sitting around doing nothing.
