Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers


????????????????????

Each time I revisit the pictures I snapped at the entrance of one of the Philippines‘ main attractions in the capital city, Manila Ocean Park, I am brought into the world of fantasy. I am talking about the ground of Pandora in the middle of the floating Hallelujah Mountains on top of a large unobtanium deposit near the Hometree of the Omaticaya clan.

I always remember that mysterious yet enticing ground where the Tree of Souls stands. This tree is located right at the heart of Pandora’s natural Flux Vortex. It has quite an appealing aerial roots layered into visual perfection. You can see something like these aerial roots hanging from the branches of the giant tropical fig raised at the ocean park’s entrance, right before reaching the main underwater acrylic tunnel.

        I watched 2 broke girls – the voices are a bit shrilling :D, but I still watch them as I need some laughs. Do you follow the big bang theory – it is my favourite series.

      Worry not, Issy. We are far from the gravely affected area. But I, too, is as devastated as the rest of the world. My heart still bleeds for the victims. Thanks a lot for the prayers.

    I can see the leaves but what’s that in the front again? What are those made of? It reminds of a public display they have in Lacma.

    Sony, is the tag line above your header from a movie?

    1. Sony Fugaban says:

      Yes, Paula. It’s from the movie titled “Mona Lisa Smile”. I thought it was a mouthful; it says a lot about what I do.

  7. That is quite some entrance. Amazing colours, really wild. I even like the version you have in the header better. Those colour stripes really comes alive in the panoramic format.
