A Snapshot of My Hometown

My pick for today’s post is a photo of an old man carrying groceries. I like this scene because it represents a slice of what I see everyday in my hometown. unfinished buildings, writing on the walls, narrow streets, slopes, cracks everywhere and bread in everybody’s daily grocery bags.

It’s those little things that I never observed before I got into photography. You live in a place long enough, your mind starts to internalize how that place looks like and eventually you won’t be looking at it twice, you’ll be relying on your memory to see it, not your eyes. Holding a camera blocks my memory and forces me to truly see the details that memory doesn’t bother to register.
