Urban Decay

(click for a larger image)

A quick 'experimental' composite image I've done for a personal project. Shot somewhere in Pasay City. The title immediately popped out into my head and indeed what an apt title. Wikipedia defines urban decay as a process by which a city, or a part of a city, falls into a state of disrepair. It is characterized by depopulation, property abandonment, high unemployment, fragmented families, political disenfranchisement, crime, and desolate and unfriendly urban landscapes.

Our university is working with some urban poor communities in Pasay. The situation for those areas really require a major overhaul from top to bottom. It's so easy to just drop the program- but the residents' determination to rise above their quagmire of dilapidated homes and broken community spirit fuels the partnership between them and the university...

Merry Christmas po. Thanks for sharing your talent to the world and helping make it a better place through the issues that come to the fore via your photos =]
