PhotoHunt: BUBBLES

This is a detail on the window of a spa resthouse some 60 kilometers south of Manila. I can't help but reflect on how this feature mirrors my country which celebrates its 112th Independence Day today. With 90 million people, speaking 85 languages, living in a an archipelago with 7,107 islands, there is the inevitable fragmentation brought about by geography and culture on close scrutiny. However, if we pull back and see the bigger picture, we are but one colorful fabric, forming a cohesive state, unified by our differences, forged together by our welcome diversity. It's the only nation we have, so we have to make it work.
