It’s amazing how we encounter something (or someone) on a regular basis, yet only have a superficial idea on what it is, or how beautiful it really is when viewed on a different light. Take the Welcome Rotonda, also known as the Mabuhay Rotonda, in Quezon City. It’s a roundabout at the border of Quezon City and Manila City, found at one one end of Quezon Avenue (Quezon City side) and Espana Avenue (Manila City side). People usually take it for granted, a traffic junction usually choked during peak hours. It’s a marble monument surrounded by four lions, marking the east, west, north and south corners. We didn’t know this interesting piece of information until today. We also didn’t know that the Welcome Rotonda can transform its unremarkable look into something majestic at night — captured with the right camera settings and at the right angles.
