NEOCLASSICAL EDIFICE

Manila Central Post Office – Manila – 01/17/10

It was a failed sunset shoot at Manila Bay with my friend Allan when I took this photo. We walked from Cultural Center of the Philippines up to the Jones Bridge looking for a good subject but  we ended up eating dinner in Binondo.

The photo above is the Manila Central Post Office. It is the post office of Manila and the head office of Philippine Postal Corporation. The building was designed by Juan M. Arellano and built in 1926. It was rebuilt after the worldwar in 1946. It is one of the beautiful neoclassical inspired buildings in Manila.  Located in Intramuros along Pasig River, fronting Liwasang Bonifacio / Plaza Lawton.

Photography Gears: Nikon D80 + Nikkor 18-70mm
Settings: 70mm, 92 secs, f8, ISO 100
