Eyesores/Signs

A drive-by shot on a Sunday morning---with the ubiquitous king of the road in the middle of an intersection.  Metro Manila is not Metro Manila without the jeepney.  Unsightly cables, a dilapidated building covered with all kinds of signs are perfect examples of an urban eyesore.  I wonder where the free parking was---I hope not on the roof top.:p

you are right, it's an eyesore for sure. i wonder if that building gets revenue from the signages posted everywhere its facade.

There is nowhere for your eyes to rest!

Yes.... Lotsa' stuff, -- the bus would be interesting if it weren't quite so jumbly around it!

the jeepney is kinda cool but the building is a disaster

Great action shot! Really captures the essence of the city. Can the sign be any bigger for free parking? Ha ha!

I wonder where the free parking was too...the "king of the road" is colorful though...

I am with RedPat - my eyes need a rest!

Nice shot, but I agree about the building being an eyesore...

I sort of like the colorful bus, but I agree that the rest of it is a bit jumbled. :)
