Fort Santiago, revisited/OWT


I am having fun with photo effects.:p  And I think these photos are perfect for the vintage effect, don't you think?  The top and bottom photos were taken in front of Fort Santiago, an old Spanish fort in the walled city of Intramuros.  With these horse-drawn carriages, I was thrown back in time to 1900's Manila.  But I was here to attend a modern-day wedding reception at the Plaza de Moriones.  My friend's son got married---I couldn't believe it!  It was like yesterday when this handsome little boy entertained himself by drawing pictures while us girls were having girl-talk. 

my friend, Angie, giving her speech and crying at the same time.  she couldn't seem to stop crying.:p  Nico, after all, is her first-born.

This building across the entrance of Fort Santiago houses United Philippine Lines (UPL), a manning company for the maritime industry.

Went to Fort Santiago once and to me it's not as beautiful like in your photos. Better visit this place again thanks for sharing the photos, Luna!

Hi Luna, it is unbelievable, as i have been to Fort Santiago only twice. I would have wanted to just go and take photos, but everybody seems to have frequented it many times except me!
