“What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the soul.” -Joseph Addison
“The Oblation“or “Oble” is an iconic symbol of the University of the Philippines, sculptured by Filipino artist Guillermo E. Tolentino. I have seen several photos of the Oblation but I decided to shoot through this angle because I was carrying my backpack on my right shoulder and my left hand was holding a plateful of Papu’s Siomai (the best siomai in dimsumland!) so right hand took charge and fired away.
And you thought I was about to share some serious photo skills.
Not gonna happen.
Because I don’t have any.
Location: University of the Philippines, Los Banos, Laguna, Philippines (September 2010)
Camera: Good ol’ Canon Ixus 😉
Food: Papu’s Siomai
