This was an accidental click.
It was pitch black and I was just trying to measure the light and take a photo of the metalwork when this figure literally popped into my frame as my eye was on the EFV, startling me. I almost jumped, but found myself clicking as I was catching my breath.
The old man was probably sitting behind the fence and must’ve heard me approaching. He probably got startled too.
I took this photo sometime in July while navigating a dark alley in Mandaluyong, Metro Manila.
