Street Transporter: Fast and Fury

Street Transporter: Fast and Fury

Street general labour for hire is the main way for the street vendor to transport their goods between places in the street. They looks fierce and aggressive due to the daily load work to earn their daily bread but they are good and caring normal people if you get to know them.

 

Why I capture his image?

He got the character of the street bare chest and rugged face or you may say 'fierce' face. He depicts the activity of the street.

 

How I capture this image?

As I was walking waiting for my friend, Foxsama www.flickr.com/photos/foxsama/

, I saw this man coming from a distance and I rush over to get to the distance I want to get my desired shot.

Direct attack is my method. I squat down in front of this on-coming route, compose, frame and squeeze the shutter. I see his facial expression change a bit but I just give a thumb up sign and walk for the next target.

Later when I have a walk with Foxsama, he told me that one of the unpleasant incident that he experienced during street shooting was with this man. In that sense, I am abit lucky or he is in a good mood or the way I ended my act.
