E for Easygoing



A local vendor resting and seeking shade.

Shot in the Philippines. These vendors are allowed to go from car window to car window to sell their goods while the cars wait by the stoplight.

nice shot, eventhough he is sitting under the tree looking relax but it's not easy job being street vendor, no insurance, no benefit, it's risky being out there in the street... I feel sorry to a lot of our unfortunate kababayans... thanks for sharing.

Nice photos you have here in your blog

Looks like business is slow. Great observed shot.

I love this idea, it's a good reminder for us all to take it easy!
Nice photo too.

There's a lot of these street vendors in Indonesia and Thailand too. Definitely not in Singapore,sure to be fined! lol

Jay said...

A very original E! We don't have 'window to window' salesmen here. No-one is allowed to interrupt the traffic flow.

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

"Easy like Sunday morning" springs to my mind. There's almost a little story encapsulated in your picture.

I hope the vendors don't harass people to buy their products.

Thanks to everyone who dropped a comment!

@Mar In Chile too? It's the same in other parts of the world, huh.
I haven't heard that U2 song in a while too, haha, really nice song though.

@Lindz Yeah, life on the street is tough.

@Lily Ahh, I wish I could take it easy too, more holidays please!

@Jama fined, yes! :O

@Jay haha, it does interfere with the traffic.

@A thank you! I'm glad the photo's able to tell a story.

@belladana thank you, I hope you like the photos.

@Ann oh, they can be persistent sometimes. But as long as they are honestly doing business is definitely better than those who do things that increase the country's crime rate.
