Sandakan, Sabah/Borneo – late into the evening the local cab drivers discuss the issues of their world. Just using the light from the cafe and moonlight with ASA1600 – hence the grain within the pic, camera held against a window frame to stop movement with a 1/20 sec exposure.

Canon 300D ; Tamron 70-300mm

Winner of Art House Productions International NIGHT LIFE, (ON THE STREET) challenge
