    It's tricky to write a story in the tags... As punctuation messes it all... By the way, punctuation should be allowed in the tags... please... ; )

    I submitted photos but tagged them only with keywords that I hoped would easily reveal the story. I was afraid the punctuation marks esp the commas would jumble the words and arrange them alphabetically. Anyway, the urban story for the six photos is as simple as this:
    <It was a sunny day and Binondo (Manila Chinatown) was as busy as ever and full of shopping crowd who were all hoping to get the best bargains especially this day when the entire Chinatown welcomed the New Year! Everyone was rushing for tomorrow would be business as usual.>

    can anyone see "the rising sun rumble" and "travel far with panoramic and wide-angled photos rumble"? these seem to be dead links to me...

  13. sugiyamasatomi

    Lomography Asks: Is It Acceptable to Photograph the Homeless?

    "Is it acceptable to photograph the homeless?" is one of the most hotly-debated topics when it comes to street photography. There are two opposing sides to this: those who believe it is, and those who don't. For those who do, capturing such photographs is mere documentation of the world around us. For those who don't, doing so is a form of exploitation.
