This is one of the first few photos that I took that I liked.

This was taken early morning, the first of January, New Year’s day,  some decades ago. The mist is actually the smoke left over from the previous night’s New Year fireworks and revelry. The guy on the bicycle is what one can call a newspaper delivery boy on the way towards the Malacañang area.  One can still see the barbed-wire barricades further down the street guarding the entrance to the Palace gates.

This was photo taken on film — the dark patches on the left is from its deterioration because I’m bad at keeping this thing.
