One more for the road. Waited for a couple of hours for someone to peep through the window. Glad I did because the stare she gave me was priceless.
The owner(?) of the restaurant (1st floor) was very suspicious of what I was doing so he started circling me. I ignored him and just concentrated on my task. Eventually he gave in and asked what I was doing, and a bit aggressively at that. Told him I work for Silver Kris and doing a documentary of Little India. He was very amused when he saw the photo.
Hmmm.. Looks bright enough here on my side.. I'm not very confident with my monitor, though.. 3 years with no calibration.
Anyways, I've seen that video of B. Gilden some time back. Now that's too much, IMHO. I'm sure some people with balls of steel wouldn't mind following his example. Next thing we know there's strict laws on street photography already just because of this guy's crazy antics. His gangster series however, is awesome. I'll try to find the video later.
The wall is actually painted with a very bright yellow. It was taken around 6:30PM and the sun sets behind the building so it doesn't really have it's part in the picture.
I think it's scary as well and that's what I like about this photo. It evokes an emotion.
Here's B.Gilden and his gangster series.
canon fan boy ;D
So Gilden's trending today hahaha. Actually, only a crazy person will do that. Gangs outside SG are more notorious. Where I come from there's a very high possibility that they will take your camera and kill you just for kicks. I tried doing street in the outskirts of old Manila but never even got the chance to whip out my cam. Two guys started following me real close. Maybe because I was wearing 'different' clothes. I dunno. I quickly went inside a nearby hospital and gave them the finger. Risky business, street is.
