PhilPost old printing section

"Happiness is a wine of the rarest vintage, and seems insipid to a vulgar taste"
-Logan Pearsall Smith
The old printing room of the Philippine Post Office

I was surprised myself on how my perceptions with things changed. As a child I used to love anything fancy and fairy tale like, but now I am more appreciative of the old, vintage and antiques. I am fascinated with the story and history of old barren places like this old printing section of the Philippines Post Office. Yes, it's dilapidated but somehow it's magical. Happiness over simple matters.

  3. I feel the same way Sey. I have always loved old, historic items/places. They have a story to tell, a legacy they carry, elegance second to none and something we can be proud of.

    You have taken a very clear shot of this building. This old printing section must be carrying so many memories.

    Thank you very much for leaving such a hearty comment on my blog.
    Much appreciated! ✿
