In Manila, the shopping mall is the recreational nerve center for the average person. There are no decent parks to speak of, so kids, families, couples on a date and elderly people have no choice but to go to the mall to have fun or to pass the time.
I am very pleasantly surprised that mall developers nowadays are making an effort to make these places visually stimulating.
I took these pictures in SM North EDSA-- the largest mall in Southeast Asia, and the second largest in the world, according to Wikipedia. I'm liking this Pinhole setting. It gives everything a soft light.
