The Artwalk Experience

Recently I decided to take photo from this artwork and want to share this with you. It was a fun and very memorable time capturing those images. Being crafted to perfection I also tried to capture it the best way I can interpret in photo. I spend two days to get photos for all those artwork because of the limited time. All I can say is that, the time spent was all worth it.

Here are the photos and hope you can appreciate it guys! If you have some time, try to take the artwalk and discover the beauty of the art loving city. Mabuhay!

      Great pictures. The only one I recognize is Specific Gravity, since I usually limit myself to High Street. I love it, though I always imagined it as a spider peeing....

      I love The Trees. Gotta spend more time at the Fort to see what I've been missing:). I've added this post to my Pinterest:).

      I like them all kabayan, especially Ang Supremo.. The Trees and Specific Gravity.

      Like what you've said, " It's all worth it," once you visit the Bonifacio Global City.
