A Day in the Life of a Student: Living Through Rainy Days

2013-10-21

The start of the school year in the Philippines also marks the start of the rainy season. Check out some pictures I’ve taken during one rainy school day!

As I have mentioned, the start of the school year in the Philippines also marks the start of the rainy season. That means students will have to live through going to school everyday despite the rains and the occasional typhoons. It’s not something that we enjoy, quite honestly. Being a student myself, I dread the idea of braving the storms, especially because college students like us are required to attend class even when there are typhoons. I would rather just stay at home and bum around (who wouldn’t?).

But every once in a while, I would appreciate the rain because it can be a thing of beauty. Here are a few pictures I took during one rainy day in the University of the Philippines.

The roads look like glass or mirrors when it rains, don’t you think?

Careful though, roads are slippery when wet.

It’s necessary to have an umbrella with you at all times, unless you want to get drenched.

Here’s me and my friend taking a selfie while walking under the rain.

The rain can be a good reason to take out those Plueys, or whatever crazy boots you have!

They’ll help you walk through those water puddles.

And boat shoes are a no-no!

That didn’t stop me from wearing them, though.

When it starts to pour, don’t be afraid to take out those cameras to snap a picture of the gloomy weather. Rain or shine, you have to get your Lomo on!

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Sunrise in the Desert

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

  • Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
