    Great shots! It gives a good overall impression of the district. So many different perspectives and situations 🙂

    Not quite NYC, is it…

    Well, it seems that living in a new and (I presume, for you a) foreign place has had an important impact on your photography. I can feel a real fascination on your part, excitement I should say. And I understand why by looking at this new series. You got closer to the subject, making them fill the frame. Colors are more intense thant I can remember from before. And you compose with them the way I enjoy seeing them. The scenes, also, the way they are caught, aim straight to a deeper emotional discourse. Manilla seems to be filled with harsh yet fulfilling life.

      Thanks for your comment Arr Day. I am certainly filled with excitement and curiosity in this new place, and if that comes through in my pictures then that is a success. I still feel like very much the outsider here and I think my images reflect that. I hope to get closer and deeper in the months ahead. The intensity of color and depth of shadow is down to underexposing my film (kodak portra) – still tweaking my approach but I do like this look.

        Closer and deeper : you could give yourself a full year to acheive this, but to wish for a few months before getting there is very understandable.
        Intensity of colors and depth of shades : most probably because I relate to this myself. Like the more “psychological” side to a picture content, probably because I am sensitive to this in the first place I can feel it in other people’s work.
