STRIDING THE SIDE ROADS

I took this month a go on way my home. I was struggling to take a front shot, but it’s so difficult to steer and to focus and before I knew it, the green light has signaled me to move. I wish future cities will engineer the roads with provisions that will cater the needs of the differently-abled, especially the older ones like this man. Sigh!

  2. Sana nga, Vernz. Although, our buildings have improved their structures to accommmodate wheelchair access, our streets need some work. I'll vote for the politicians who can do these this coming election :D

    My MYM is up here.

  11. Allow me to take a 'deep bow' in respect of your photography and way you write.

    Agree with you that nowadays cities across the whole world are not able to take care of the needs of so many, especially those in need of a wheelchair or blind people as well.

    Please have a wonderful start into your Tuesday. p.s.: and allow me to offer you the "bow award" next Monday.

  12. That poor man! Such a hardship for him. I don't think the jeepneys slow down for anything here. I do hope some improvements are made.

  13. i hope that there's a special lane for elderly or singles.. the fact is, we will never have that wish, a wishful thinking maybe.
