Luneta Park Revisited

Its been so long simula noong binisita ko ang Luneta Park, I admit medyo gumanda ang paigid nito at nadagdagan ng mga bagong atraksyon ngunit medyo na dismaya lamang ako ng kaunti sapagkat di ko na makukuhaan ng Whole shoot ang Isla ng Philipinas sapagkat nilagyan na nila ito ng isang bridge kung saan pude daw makita  ng malapitan ang mga pulo ng Pilipinas at may nilagay silang mga trivia sa bawat paligid nito.

Narito ang ilan sa aking mga kuhang larawan sa aking muling pagbisita sa Luneta Park.

Sign Post: |Luneta Park or Rizal Park is one of the historic destinations in the Philippines. It was named following the French language word "Lunette" that means half moon mainly because Luneta Park seemed like a half moon land even at this time. It has been set up during the Colonial Regime for the objective of some festivals and sometimes conducting a mass for the purpose of the people. 

Sign Post: |The park’s Rizal Monument, designed by Swiss sculptor Richard Kissling, is among the country’s most famous landmarks. All foreign dignitaries are required to visit the monument to pay respect to the remains of Rizal buried in the monument’s mausoleum. The bronze statue, made in Switzerland and remodeled by national artist Juan Nakpil, is famously protected by the Kabalyeros de Rizal (Knights of Rizal) who do not move all-day or all-night long.
