Fats here.

It’s Tuesday! It’s time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is E, and I am sharing with you photos I took when I visited the Philippines. I went to Eastwood Mall with my good friends, Justin and Iphigene (yes, GB’s very own!). The Metro loves buildings.

“I loved the city. We were anonymous, and even then I had the sense that cities were yielding; that they moved over and made room.”
— Sheridan Hay, The Secret of Lost Things

“She loved the way her city always sounded like it was celebrating.”
— Sarah Pekkanen, These Girls

“It was only in an urban landscape, amid straight lines and architecture, that she could situate herself in human time and history. She missed people. She missed human intrigue, drama and power struggles. She needed her own species, not to talk to, necessarily, but just to be among, as a bystander in a crowd or an anonymous witness.”
— Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being

“Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.”
— Roman Payne, Cities & Countries

“For those who are lost, there will always be cities that feel like home.”
— Simon Van Booy, Everything Beautiful Began After
