Day 2 and it was time to explore more of Dhaka. This time around, we were walking to meet up with the Stories team who was there to shoot another wedding. What are the odds right? Two Malaysia-based photographers (now one Singapore-based) in Dhaka at the same time to shoot two separate weddings.
This time around, I was just sniping at every opportunity that I got. One thing that I was quite impressed was the ability to carry heavy things and balance it on the head. Amazing stuff.
Another thing that I noticed was the reading culture. Either I was just bumping into a lot of people that were reading, or they really love to read. It was also the first time that I got approached on the street, while walking, to buy novels and autobiographies. They were really pushing the Obama book to me, which I found quite odd.
After a good meal with the Stories team, we then took walked around and we decided to go have Movenpick ice-cream. Don’t ask why but well, we just had a craving for ice-cream then. Took a shot of the man behind Integricity, Alex Lam, and one of Malaysia’s finest shooter, Andrew Chow.
After some dessert, it was time to part ways and we walked back to the hotel. We decided to stop at a supermarket and I spotted this man carrying lots of chicken. I wonder if it is a poultry delivery service. That would be a good idea for the local market here :P
Another thing they love to sell are cigarettes. They have this mobile carts that are everywhere, in every corner, eager to help someone cure their nicotine craving.
Finally, got back to the hotel for a bit of rest before work begins, and I saw this lil girl that I thought was rather cute. Asked the dad for permission to photograph her but alas, she didn’t want to smile for me. Oh well, still one of my favourite shots from Dhaka.
