Project 50/50: Photo 03 – Colorful Patterns of the Street Market

This photo and post is part of my Project 50/50: Starting today December 1 until December 14, 2012 11:59 p.m., I have to post these 50 quality photos to my blog under the menu Project 50/50.


This third photo was also taken at Plaza Miranda in Manila in front of Quiapo Church. At the plaza, there are lots of street vendors. I saw this Muslim lady vendor selling footwear. I like her colorful headdress which was colorful and with patterns of circles. I decided to take this photo to tell how colorful the street market in Quiapo is.  I decided to isolate her headdress against the blurred background of the footwear to make it a bit different from your typical colorful market scenes. I did not want to include her face so that it will not steal the attention of the viewers againts my intent of “Colorful Patterns of the Street Market”.
