barenaked


Look! Oh Look! They are renovating the big fountain at the center of Luneta! I was so giddy with excitement when i saw men working on this area because i really missed seeing the playful water (i'm really fond of fountains). Seeing all these pipes, I didn't realized how complicated the fixtures that composed a fountain, now you see it here barenaked! By the way, click on the image to enlarge, further at the back you'll see Jose Rizal's monument which i featured here, and the dome like stage your seeing is the Quirino Grandstand... and the equipment behind (dunno what you call those instruments in construction) is where the Ocean Park is being built.

Seeing the rusts in the pipes, you prolly figured out that this fountain is already old! Well it is. I'm being nostalgic about this place so i'm posting photos of me and my siblings in this area way way back in January 1980.


this is me, just turned 2 when this photo was taken :)


my siblings, noticed how me and my sister wear the same dress? we're not twins but our mother loved dressing us up as if we're twins which was fun.

Do you have fond memories of this place too?

@carlotta - i'm sure you visited/saw this fountain un nga lang di mo na maremeber kc walang pic :)

@lingling - hahaha kakatuwa naman, ganun yata ang trend ng mga nanay

@ming - now i can appropriately call you mister ;)

@slinger - thanks

@joy - kakatuwa talaga, siguro it only means that Luneta was the place to be during those golden days! and a place for families to hang out

What an interesting shot of the fountain's inner workings. I too love fountains but never once thought of looking below the surface. :)

You must have been born very close to each other. You look like twins. Nice photos.

Also the fountain is bare naked and reminds me of the cost involved in shooting water up in the sky. It is kind of an extravagant thing but everyone likes fountains. Nice photographs.

Great photo of the renovation of the fountain and the photos of your childhood.

naku iniisip ko tuloy kung mayroon ba akong picture dyan nung maliit ako? pero di ko na tinuloy kasi wala palang pamasahe nanay ko noon kaya di kami nakakapunta dyan sa ganyang edad lol!

I had to smile at the comment about your mother dressing you and your sister like twins. My mother did the same thing with me and my sister... we are 18 months apart in age.
