Photohunt: Shoes

Photobucket


I know this one comes in really late, I couldn't get the shot I wanted. I was riding a jeepney to work this afternoon when I just started clicking away. I took this shot when the jeepney I was riding happened to stopped side by side with a bus's doorway.

Photobucket

As I was thinking of a suitable photo for this post, I was reminded of an ad they ran in late '80s. I'm not entirely sure if it was for a shoe company, just that it was a Christmas special. There's this rich kid of about 10, who while stuck in traffic, observed a street kid about his age begging. Upon seeing the kid's bare feet, he decides to give him his new pair of rubber shoes--the same one he just received for Christmas.

I'd love to see that ad again. I wish I could be a person who can just do that without worrying what other people might think. Yes, I'm a pleaser, and that might just end up being my undoing.

Oh I almost forgot to check your photohunt entry! Better late than never right? This is a cool concept, the idea of taking pictures of people while they're not looking gives me the happies. Earlier today, an emo boy was sitting in front of me at the jeepney, took his picture, LOL. Am I weird or what?

Then do it. Stop worrying what other people think.

@alohapenny: I wish I could do that. I'm afraid of taking pictures of other people. I have to pretend to be picturing something else all the time hehe...

@km: Err... I want to, and I do so a lot more these days than before, but... you know how it is right?

@cams: Hmm... I didn't think about it that way. Come to think of it, I even witnessed someone getting his cap snatched by a boy while sitting in front of me in the jeep. Boy, that would've been a cool blog had I caught it in video.

Was he toe tapping?

I guess I am not aware of the ad you mention...

@tnchick: I don't think you would, coz it's a local ad. Thanks for dropping by. :)

Hmmm...I guess you can't immediately jump in. You have to take things one step at a time. :)
