I took this shot a few days ago after getting dinner with Julianne. It’s not the greatest shot because the subjects are far away and I only had my Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens on.
I’ve been wanting to get a good shot of an entire family, or a scooter taxi with multiple passengers, for a while now. Guess I’ll just have to keep my eyes peeled when I’m out on the next street photography walk.
One thing living overseas has taught is that the ‘must’ and ‘should’ and ‘never’ rules of western modern countries are not global norms. “Common sense” ideas about safety are not ‘common’ but rather cultural and regional.
This seems like a statement of something that is ‘obvious’ but until you step outside of your own cultural bubble it doesn’t hit home how BIG a lot of the cultural norms are until you see them completely absent–or the polar opposite figured as ‘normal’ in the place you’re visiting.
