Light Piercing

Light Piercing

A picture taken last March, a time when my sister and I visited the MV Doulos during its stay in Manila. The oldest sailing passenger ship that is also converted into a floating bookstore was in Manila for the last time. Based on the articles I read, the ship will be de-commissioned next year, so we didn't miss out of this event.

Sister and I didn't buy any books, but we did buy MV Doulos items such as bags, pens, post cards, and key chains. The money collected were actually given to charity - and the ship is sailing all over the world to sell books and other items for charity. The ship is run by volunteers from all over the world, too.

love the colors and the lighting of the sky. I've been hoping that MV Doulos could come here in my city. It's been awhile since their last visit.

I went to the same ship on it's last journey. I didn't take any photo of the ship because that was before I started blogging. So thanks.

I took this photo, may be you saw her/
