urban manila

I was recently commissioned to take some photos of my city.  I've never had anyone pay for my photographs and services so it was nice that someone appreciated this newly discovered artistic direction of mine.

They wanted to see the urban side to Manila. The part that is constantly developing. The part that you realise is there for our country to move forward. The part that is there to help it grow. The part that keeps you in it's grasp.

My lens saw things that I usually take for granted. I don't usually look up when I'm sitting in traffic, nor do I stroll through the park in the middle of the city, ever. But on this day, I did.

Sometimes my city suprises me.  
I'm glad that once in a while, in the midst of all the chaos, I have reminders that actually...

.... it ain't all that bad.

Pin It!
