Manila Bay sunset [SWF]

@ mirandablue
These were taken on Saturday afternoon at Baywalk of the Mall of Asia. My friend and I were having an early dinner at Harbor View Bistro when I noticed the sunset.  The whole stretch of sea wall was full of people it was impossible to take a photo without including the sun worshipers.  I was standing on a concrete bench with both my hands above my head when I took these photos. 

@ mirandablue
I wondered out loud why the Baywalk was unusually crowded and traffic was horrendous, and the waiter told us there was a Pyro-Olympic competition at 8 pm.  Oh, so they weren't here for the sunset alone!

Fireworks later lighted the night sky...and that's for another post.:p

It has been a popular spot for sunset watching. I just haven't found myself sunworshipping there :(

Maybe later.
