Street Scenes from Cebu



I thought I’d share some street scene photos taken while we were in Cebu.  The shuttle bus ride from the resort to town would take 45+ minutes (one way).  The kids and Chris would usually be playing some made-up game or napping.  I was busy snapping away using my new Sony Cybershot TX10.

1.  Afternoon traffic on the road.  It is not uncommon to see people hanging from the backs of the jeepneys.   Josh and Zoë were pointing them out and shouting, “Safety violation!”

2.  The town was preparing for a fiesta (a festival), putting up  balloons, banderitas (little fiesta banners).  On the day itself, there was a procession that held up traffic along the whole stretch of this road.

3.  Roadside stores – Most of the store signages are “sponsored” by various companies.

I love how colorful everything is.

I can’t explain why, but between taking pictures of beautiful sceneries and landmarks or just regular slice-of-life pictures when I travel, I much prefer to take slice-of-life pictures.   What about you?
