Standing watch

The small, pretty chapel used for wakes beside the main church of the Santuario de San Jose (Sanctuary of Saint Joseph) parish in East Greenhills, Mandaluyong City. I've been there several times but have not discovered if the chapel has its own name. It was only when I was editing the photo that I saw the tree-shaped air freshener hanging from the lamp.

Well, I really missed your blog. And I will be scanning some of these pics. My classmates are planning a walking trip to Intramuros after our defense. Just to sightsee because when we got there last month for the IT Convention, we were truly amazed of its colonial feel!

God bLess you and hope to post again tomorrow!

It is like an outdoor chapel we have here in Jupiter. It is right down the street from my house. Your photo is marvelous;)

This is a beautiful picture. I would have completely missed the air freshener if you hadn't said something.

A very pretty chapel, but lol @ the air freshener.

I got a really nice shot inside an ancient church the other day which looked like it was from hundreds of years ago. Then I noticed a digital contol for the church's central heating system in the background!!

Just what every chapel needs, an air freshener. I can't tell you how many times I've taken a photo, published it and then, later, I find the most amazing details. Fortunately I've never found anything offensive and I hope I never do!
