Monochrome Monday: CUT

A boy has his hair cut by a barber practicing his trade in an outdoors community salon beside the Pasig River.

I once had a barber who cut my hair once every three weeks since I was three years old until I was 25. When we moved from my hometown to a metropolitan area some 30kms away, I opted to go have my hair taken care of by barbers in a shopping mall but it has never been the same.

I hope this young one will continue to enjoy the expertise and extra TLC of their local barber.

  1. I haven't had my hair cut by a barber in about 19 years - my wife does it. I wonder how much money that has saved?

  2. A trade that seem to be vanishing soon, with all the blooming unisex salons springing up everywhere..

  3. shots like this will soon disappear with time

  4. Nice shot .. a bit on the dark side ..

  5. Lovely scene and it looks nice to get the hair done in an outdoor salon!

  6. So great to se from other countries, so totally different from where i live :-))
