Building a city

This photo represents the on-going efforts of developing the Philippines, depicted through this scene in Makati City, the biggest central business district. The buildings represent what we've already built as a country, while the contrast of the cranes depict the work still in progress. The setting (day) represents hope while the gloomy mood symbolizes the challenges faced.
