" Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps "

A typical "sampaguita" ( a local flower ) vendor seen outside Quiapo church.

and why the gloomy face I wonder?
Is it perhaps, there's no sale in the last few hours?
or perhaps she's listening intently in her mp3.
or just plain bored as she wanders her eyes on the things she see.
also, I think she's not handicapped, she's using the wheelchair as a seat. ^0^

oh well, life has its strange stories.

  1. Bonjour! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment today. I can't believe you are based in Manilla. I am in the Pacific Northwest. Imagine that. Two different planets! Great picture by the way. I am glad you mentioned the woman did not really need the wheel chair. She seems to be into people watching (I am too.) Maybe it is just a "slow" time of day and there is not much to look at? A bientôt. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  2. Very interesting image Arabesque. So many things to look at in the image.

  3. Some jobs are more boring than others! :-)

  4. She does look pretty fed up Arabesque. Can't see any flowers she must have sold them all, shouldn't she be smiling??

  5. a bit of info: sampaguita is known here as arabian jasmine. i bought twice, both times it died. i guess we don't have the proper weather for it thrive.

  6. Great post and very nice blog overall! I am now following :D

    Namiss ko manila hays.

  7. Maybe she's thinking of something sad or what to eat at dinner time.

  8. Life does seem to weigh heavy on her!


thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)
