Encircled

The lovely landscaped gardens and fountains of Greenbelt Park at the center of several malls which are, in turn, surrounded by the high-rise commercial and condominium buildings of the Makati Central Business District. The only building I recognize in this cluster is the tallest one on the right: the BSA Tower, a condotel.

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

I really like this shot, with the vertical lines of the buildings and the fountain and the curving lines of the tree with the lines of the hedges bringing your eye back to the fountain.

The garden is a welcome respite from the surrounding brick and mortar.

Nice garden capture with the towers as a backdrop. Balancing nature and technology.
I used to visit Greenbelt Park whenever I went down to Manila. Strolling there was so refreshing after sweating out in the heat of the sun.

I really like this shot! I like the greenery set against the backdrop of buildings. :) The water fountain is the perfect touch.

James said...

I like this shot because of the tree and the high rise buildings. I wonder what it would be like to live way up there. Of course I like the fountain too. :)

I'm so glad Metro Manila has been greened over the past decade. What an improvement! Greenbelt wasn't always green, as I remember it.
