Bored

Caught in slow-moving traffic one rainy morning, I finally noticed the graffiti-covered buildings under the Katipunan Avenue flyover. They're not abandoned but are still being used as offices of some kind. And no, I wasn't driving.

Natural or man-made, take a refreshing dip in Watery Wednesday.

Katipunan use to be my route, but I can't remember this spot. Anyway, I saw your comment at George's blog and thought you might be a Filipina. Turned out, you are! Hello Hilda, you have some very nice photos -brings me back home.

Cool shot looking through a rain spattered windshield.

I am glad the flood has subsided and only sprinkles of rain. Graffiti could be artfully done, but this one is not.

Stay dry Hilda and take care.

I think the water droplets on the window qualify. Happy Watery Wednesday to you!

This is the most unique Watery Wednesday I have ever seen, Hilda. Nice shot, you get my vote for first prize :D

Hi Hilda,

Those are normal sights here in the Metro. The Katipunan road is always clogged which will make us notice all the odd things around us hahaha. Vandalism is one of thing I hate.

It is a unique Watery Wednesday photo. A rather ugly looking place.

This place looks abandoned indeed, but you had a creative idea, cool shot with the rain drops at the glass of your car!Good girl, you are right ...not drive and take pictures at the same time! :)

This looks like graffiti or the ordinary stuff. I wonder what would happen if they had to clean it off?

Vogon Poet said...

There is so much of this stuff around that sometimes you really don't see it!

Jacob said...

Glad you had your camera armed and ready! Great rain-splattered shot of some truly ugly buildings...they do look abandoned, for sure!

Lois said...

We've had too many of those raindrops around here lately! Nice shot Hilda.

Halcyon said...

Ken Mac said...

gimme that grit, that grime, and of course, that old time religion.

Della said...

Good that you were not driving. I have a colleague who takes photos while driving. Not very safe.

George said...

I'm glad you weren't driving and I'm also glad you told us this building wasn't abandoned. The rain drops on the window certainly qualify this as a Watery Wednesday post.

Not very pretty offices, but a good watery wednesday photo.

This picture brings emotions - not happy ones. Hope you didn't stay in the rain too long. Very creative image!
