EDSA is the main thoroughfare in Metro #Manila and is the longest and the most congested highway in the metropolis. The construction of what was then called the “North-South Circumferential Road” started in the 1930s. It was then renamed to “Avenida 19 de Junio” after the birthdate of Jose Rizal, the national hero. Because of the misconception in the 1950s that it’s 54km long, it was renamed to “Highway 54”. Then the Republic Act No. 2140 was passed renaming to Epifanio de los Santos Avenue to honor him.
EDSA gained worldwide attention as the site of the peaceful People Power Revolution.
Portions of the avenue was featured in the film The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner.

The historic Manila Bay became the gateway for socio-economic development even prior to Spanish occupation. It was the setting of the Battle of Manila Bay in which American troops seized the area showcasing the United States’ naval strength destroying and capturing all major ships of Spain. The Japanese also conquered this area during the World War 2.
After the rehabilitation of the area, a 2-km strip was built, known as the Baywalk, which is one of the go-to places in #Manila for social-interaction and recreation. It is also a great spot to witness the photogenic sunsets.
Cheaters don’t change. And if you work it out, he’s just gonna do it again, and you gonna end up right back where you started wishing that you had left the first time around.— Carry Whitten, played by Cameron Diaz on The Other Woman
I confess that I don’t normally use my #Lumia1020 for @instagram due to lack of available apps but I can’t deny the fact that this beast has the best camera in a smartphone. Nothing else comes close!
I regularly visit Conversations on a weekly basis and my favorite part of the site is the Lumia Instagramer of the Week and Around The World in 80 Lumias. I wish I can be part of any of these features, but I’m still far from being a good photographer.
This post may not be acknowledged by @_Connects but for the love of photography and to showcase the capabilities of the #41mp camera, I will use my #1020 for mobile photography starting today. Oh, and I still hope for a #ConnectsTrial #Lumia930! 😉
