Location: El Nido, Palawan. Philippines
Me and my wife love to travel and I take that opportunity for myself to go and do some street photography. But honestly, I actually find it difficult to do street photography and enjoy traveling both at the same time. Why? As much as I love street photography, I prefer enjoying the adventures with my wife and end up taking photos only when I get the chance.
I proved my point when we were in Palawan. The place was so beautiful, I can’t keep my eyes off the scene. Raising the camera seems like a big task.
I don’t turn my “street-mode” switch on when traveling. I just photograph things as it happens. And if nothing happens, I don’t mind at all. I don’t hunt, I just go with the flow. As long as I’m enjoying our trip, I’m all good.
Palawan was such a scenic place. Blue and gree everywhere. And when something beautiful happens in front of me, that is when I snap a shot. A few shots and I’m back admiring the scene.
Finally, I don’t want to feel like I'm working when I’m traveling. Street photography will always be part of the itinerary but never a task to fulfill. Main goal is the experience, next is to record it through photographs.
