As an amateur attempt on street photography, I used a Nikon D40, my first and only digital SLR. I post-processed the images using Adobe Photoshop to obtain a gritty, black and white effect. Thus, the series' name. The cat-eyeglasses logo was custom-made for me by my good friend, Justine.
|01. A fish seller at Vicente Cruz wet market|
|02. A Yakult vendor at Vicente Cruz market|
|03. A soy bean curd vendor along Fajardo Street|
|04. A homeless woman along España Blvd.|
|05. Slipper vendors along Lacson Ave.|
|06. A homeless man along España Blvd.|
|07. A kid playing by himself at Quiapo's underpass|
|08. A man who sells "dirty" ice cream|
|09. Rag sellers along Magsaysay Blvd. (taken in a taxi)|
|10. A homeless man along Pureza|
|11. A homeless woman in Rizal Park|
|12. A homeless man along España Blvd.|
|13. A homeless man along Recto Blvd.|
Sadly, I was only religious with the series for the 13 weeks. I am planning to restart this project (using the same name) and then use 35mm films instead. Manila City will always be in my heart.
