River Promenade by coffeebugg River Promenade by coffeebugg
The Pasig river promenade along the Makati - Mandaluyong river banks.

Sometimes, when sunlight struggles against the encompassing darkness of the night, we get some of the most beautiful and ethereal light shows in the most unlikely of places.

Now admittedly.. my neck of the woods is very urbanized. And that river in the photo is the Pasig River. In 1990, it was considered "biologically dead" and fishing has been prohibited up until half a decade ago. Now the river is in the brisk of its rehabilitation and one can see it's progress. It's been a slow uphill struggle to bring a once heavily polluted river, or as it was once called "an oversized sewage canal", but more than 2 decades of slow rehabilitation, you can actually see its progress.

With ecocentric communities and projects being developed on its banks, the dusk lighting from the setting suns puts an eerie glow of hope that this river shall be brought to life just as it once did, supporting communities along its banks just after the 2nd World War.

About a hundred years ago, there used to be crocodiles living there. In our college days we have seen mutant fish in them dark waters... Good to see the place cleaned up and look pretty for scenic shots. =P
