I’m not a trained photographer, and I do not have an SLR. But I like taking pictures, anyway, using either my mobile phone camera or my digicam (both Samsung).
I am working in this country’s most urban city–the financial capital Makati–for five years now. I’ve been seeing this modern landscape day after day. And I wonder why is it only now what I had the penchant to take pictures of an otherwise “normal” scene for me.
I only took the following pictures one fine 5 p.m. atop our low-rise building. I had a limited view because of this reason. I could only capture everything within my 360-degree prospect, hampered by some relatively taller structures. I know the other half of Makati’s central business district promises an awesome scene. I hope you like these pictures.
Throughout the day, sunset is the period that I like most. The light that pervades the landscape is lambent but is not scorching. In fact, the soft but intense sunset illumination is very pleasing and inviting to my eyes. The yellow-orange colour seems is ostensibly evident. Also, sunset evokes something melancholy and pensive. It makes something inside me languish for a time and just behold the soft radiance of the sky and everything that the waning light touches. Here is my study of near-sunset in an urban terrain.
I hope you liked my pictures today. Thanks for reading.
