STREET ART BY DAY, CREEPY SILHOUETTE BY NIGHT

Posted by
Hub Pacheco (Pasay, Philippines) on 23 March 2007 in Cityscape & Urban.

An innocent-looking MMDA (Metro Manila Development Authority) street art that serves as a marker for designated loading/unloading spots* is an ominously dark and creepy silhouette come nighttime. At first glance, you'd really think that they were real shadows of a mother, a little girl, and a construction worker.

Things aren't what they seem to be when seen from a different light, or in this case, a lack of light.

*(Sakayan in Filipino means loading/unloading spots for PUVs [Public Utility Vehicles])
