Weekly Photo Challenge: Transformation

Here’s my entry to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

Transformation (transfərˈmāSH(ə)n): a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance.

Everyday we are witnesses to different transformations. Whether it be night turning into day, or day into night. Enemies into friends, or friends into enemies. Failure into success, or success into failure. But we can do something about how we want it written.

And the photo above? I transformed it. I posted it upside down! I’m not sure if many of you even noticed.

Here’s the original photo.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

Broken. A term that we can apply to a structure ravaged by time.

(photo taken at Vigan, Ilocos Sur)

Or to a place ravaged by the forces of nature.

IMG_2965

(photo taken at Tacloban, after the typhoon Haiyan)

Or a societal state ravaged by a corrupt system, where the rich becomes richer and the poor becomes poorer.

Manila

Or it can even be applied to a perfect picture of opulence….

….when we are oblivious to the sufferings of the poor just outside our deaf walls.

Broken.
