The UST Main BuildingUST Main Building

A few nights before Christmas, tired and weary from the long hours and usual going-ons at the office; I decided to revisit my alma mater before the season ends and they pack the bright lights off.

I left home around mid-afternoon hoping to catch the golden light spill across the majestic Main Building, but alas, the sky seemed foreboding of rain.  The sun is hiding, gray all around.

Luck of luck, it did rain while I was rushing my way via the LRT train.

But all was not lost, it seemed that I would still get my break.  The rain started to fizzle off as I arrived at the oldest university this side of Asia.

Time to find my spot. I pulled up my tripod, readied my remote, mounted my camera, set it at f/8 and peered into the viewfinder. 

Finally, peace and relaxation.
