Enter the walls of Intramuros, the city within a city. It remains a monumental, if ruined, relic of the Spanish period in Philippine history.
Most Filipinos visit this site during a school field trip. One of the reasons why I love lomography is that it makes me really interested and reconnected with places/things I’ve taken for granted such as this beautiful walled city! So armed with my Holga, I went to Intramuros and toured the city by foot, under the hot hot heat of the sun. It was definitely an adventure I would never thought I would enjoy 10 years ago. I was just amazed by its rich history and its beauty!
Aside from the ruins and the old buildings there are other elements in this walled city that can be captured! I especially enjoyed taking pictures of the people hanging out, the vendors and the children. Animals were also a favorite! There were cats lounging around and horses that waited to pull the carriages.
This spot is awesome during the day and night! Definitely bring a bottle of water while going around though, because a roundtrip tour will take at least 3 hours!

The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
