city under attack!!!


Well not really, dont worry our city is safe. It just seem to appear that this cannon is aimed at Manila City Hall's tower from this view. This is one of the cannons that lined up the main front of the intramuros walls. For more pictures of the cannons click here.

it looks like Europe. Actually it reminds me of Eger in Hungary:)

superb, the prospect for this gun to direct towards the monument is very impressive. With the attack .........

Wow. The canons are really nice examples of canons from that time period. It is worth clicking to see all of the other canons. I suppose when the canon was mounted that the building was not there in those days. Nice work.

I love how the canon draws your eye right to the building.

This is a bit of a perception puzzle. At first, I thought this was a pipeline passing through a notch in an old wall. Once I read your explanation, I understood. I have never visited Manila but I have read that it has been through many wars. Undoubtedly,cannons were once greatly needed.

Great photo. I like how the canon seems to draw you into the photo as if you are actually readying the canon to fire on the City Hall.
