Photo of the Day – Makati Jeepney “VhineChie”  

During my year in the Philippines (a place I dream of someday visiting again) I was always fascinated by the highly decorated Jeepneys (a type of mini-bus used for public transportation).   Each one was somewhat unique.

This photo taken on May 19, 2007  in Makati using a simple Nikon Coolpix S10 pocket camera, is one of my favorites.  Not so much for what the photo shows, but for what it does not show.   After I took this shot, the driver smiled a great big smile, through the window.   The original photo in JPEG format came out somewhat dark, and was post processed in Aperture to lift the shadows and restore some of the original color and detail.
