More stills from unusual places.  The photos were taken from more wall art in Makati, the shores of Mindoro, parking lots and even your favorite fast food joint.  These images serve as a reminder to where I’ve been in the past few months.  They may not tell the complete story, but they’re clues, nonetheless.
