Busy Day

Wednesday, September 13 | |

Kodak CX7430, aperture at f6.70, shutter speed at 1/350 sec., focal length of 53mm, no-flash, ISO 80

This is how a typical busy day looks like in one of Metro Manila's major avenues.

C'est comment un jour occupé typique ressemble dedans à un des avenues principales de Manille de Métro.

I have seen EDSA more busy! But maybe people don't use their cars as much as before because of the high oil prices.
Nice view! Very "crisp".

seriously, great photo. i can almost smell the heat:)

SIDNEY: This was taken a few days ago around 10 - 11am. It's certainly not a busier street than a rush hour would probably look like.

MAY: How many years have you been away? Yes, it's sweltering hot when I took this photo.

wow. looks like an aerial photo. were you in a building or a moving vehicle? :) I'm trying to get a mental picture where in EDSA is this...hmm.

dr. emer... 4 years, 7 months, 17 days, and 20 hours as i type this. that is way too long, but the kids are a bit too young for my neurotic mind to go hop on a plane.

but i tell you, i have played my itenerary in my head over and over and over. when that day finally comes, that i will see the philippine airport again, it will be emotional. it is pathological, i know. that's why i enjoy looking at the pictures you post...they send me home vibes. thanks.

Was I somehow flying,Ipanema? *LOL* Now, that would be wonderful. No. I was on the upper deck level of Boni station. They have a nice viewing deck there. The train in the picture is the 10:20 which I had been waiting for.

Then, I will try to post more pictures on this beloved and forsaken country of ours, May. The way I see it, baka sa new Terminal 3 ka na mag-land. It will finally open after a long wait. Cool ka lang. Time flies fast. Malapit ka nang umuwi. :)

ipanema said...

lol doc. ok, got it. :)

John said...

Busy indeed, but very interesting.

Welcome to my photo journal, Eden! :)

Sidney said...

Will they ever open terminal3 ? ;-)
I think that place got bad Feng shui...

Emer said...

There's a rumor that GMA will use it already upon her return from Europe next week, Sidney. :)
