When I need to get around Manila quick, I usually leave the car at home and take one of the city’s three light railway lines. The system is nowhere near as complicated as New York City’s subway or the London Underground, so traveling via these (mostly) elevated trains is painless, except during rush hour when the queues are long and the cars are packed. Quitting time is the worst because everyone doesn’t smell as nice anymore.

The stations are also a good place to people watch, as you’ve got folks from many walks of life using this method of commute, but I do like it during the dead hours when few passengers are on the platform.

Here are a few shots taken with the Ricoh Auto Half E with Kodak BW 400CN.
