Photographer's Note

I just left the bank, wife have been nagging me to make payment and I have been procastinating. I thought I might as well bring my camera along and see what I can come up with. This is a shoplot, the previous tenant left and the place have not been rented out, from the look of it, for ages. The glass panel was tinted black and it is quite usual for a ghostly vacant lot like this being turned into a free for all advertisement billboard. The illegal money lenders were the first to swarm in, followed by the real estate wannabes who were advertising to rent out this rundown piece of real estate.

I waited for something interesting to pass by infront of the shop. A lady walked pass infront of me, saw me shoot and started to ramble away about the condition of the shop, telling me how dirty it is, an eyesore. She must have mistaken me for an agent of some sort for the owner of the lot. A man carrying a child and his wife walked behind. When I saw the picture I wanted you know what happen......I did not hear what the lady was saying anymore....hahaha! My focus was on this picture infront of me and for a moment, not on her. I told her later, "Lady I just a photographer, Im doing my own thing and I am not the agent" I wanted her to remain anonymous so that's her on the left of the image. Hand raised and complaining to me. Like Latiff said it is not easy being a street photographer...I am risking life and limbs here...heeee!
