Hello! Glad to found your blog thru Professional Heckler... looking at these pictures, brings me back to Quiapo and its surroundings. Way back in 1983 when I first started working in STa. Cruz, everyday I have to get off in Quiapo church, walk Carriedo Street going towards Sta. Cruz. Thanks for sharing this and more power to you!

Sidney,

Thanks for dropping by to see my sunset pics...

Haven't visited Quiapo for more than 3 decades now at least. This is such a beautiful kaleidoscope of lovely, so lovely pictures. Congratulations.

My mouth is waterting at the sight of all that food!

I've already been a fan of your Philippine photoblog for a quite a while now & I've never commented. But seeing those tinapa, crabs & all the fruits & veggies (and the model with it :), I have to say you really make us want to go home. I really appreciate your photos a lot now that I see my country in a whole new different light, even only after 7 years of being away. Thanks for the wonderful photos, Sidney!

This is a really great series. Probably one of my faves from you. The colors of Manila and its characters just stands out.

By the way, all these vegetables are available in the US. The salted fish are also available in oriental stores. Many years ago when I lived in the nurses' apartment they banned them after some nurses stenched up the place with their cooking. There was so much commotion all for some measly little fish with hardly any meat. They almost called the police. The security guards came up but could not stand the stench. Some nurses were very upset that they had to pass the hall and the stench stuck to their uniforms. Imagine going to work with that awful stench :-) I am laughing at the memory now but it was not funny then.

These are organic vegetables!

The fish could do without the salt but it matches the durian in stench :-)

Sydney, every time I visited your website ..I always have mix feeling because what you capture are real people with real feelings..not like those in corporate world...ooopsss...and look at those people they are leading in a simple life and yet they can smile sincerely..just sincere...and not fakes :)

I bet the fish smelt as bad as the Durian!

Great stuff Sidney.

Sympa le dernier portrait, car la couleur du t-shirt renvoie à celle des fruits ;-)
Bon we

The manangs all seem to be having fun selling their produce Sydney. :) You know, the markets here in Cambodia look quite the same. :)

Those mangosteens are big!

Cette multitude de fruits et légumes présentés avec art donnent envie de passer au régime végétarien.
La santé assurée .
Sidney, Merci pour ton offre qui relève d'une grande gentillese.
Ce que je recherche est un objectif de 400mm Nikon à un prix abordable pouvant être monté sur le D70 et le prochain D200 (ou 300) que je pense m'acheter.
Si tu trouves une occasion à ne pas manquer, tu peux toujours m'en parler, mais ne te casse pas la tête avec ça.
Encore Merci . Amicalement.

Hello! I found you via JoAnn's blog and I'm so glad I did!

What a wonderful post. Street vendors, one of my favorite things to see when I travel. These photos are fantastic. The produce and fish looks great (first time I see chunky carrots like those, ours are long and thin; I like yours better!) and the vendors look so friendly. What a lovely place to visit.

Cheers from Boston!
