Intramuros (Latin, “within the walls”) is the oldest district and historic core of the City of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Also called the Walled City, the original citadel of Manila was the seat of government when the Philippines were acomponent realm of the Spanish Empire. Districts beyond the walls were referred as the extramuros of Manila, meaning “outside the walls”.

I joined the Weekly Photo Challenge for WordPress to help motivate myself to take more pictures, and share them with  the world. This week’s theme is FLEETING MOMENT.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

 

 

On a summer, I went back to my old university for a trip down memory lane. Most of the students were off on their summer break leaving the streets empty and barren.

  

“I remind myself that not everything is a sign, that some things simply are what they appear to be and should not be analyzed, deconstructed, or forced to bear the burden of metaphor, symbol, omen, or portent.”

  

“Don’t let the tall weeds cast a shadow on the beautiful flowers in your garden.”

  

On another occasion, I went back. This time, there were people everywhere – biking, playing football, or just simply lazing around. People watching is one of my favorite ways to pass the time.

  

Lovers’ rendezvous.
