UST-AB Photo Study: Verses before the ruins of 16th century Bacarra belfry (Bacarra, Ilocos Norte)

738 DZRB 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday

Lesson:  How do you critic literary works and photographs? How would you make a similar photo study, say of our Arch of the CenturiesIntramuros? What are the limitations of a photo study such as the Bacarra Bell Tower?  (HAND WRITTEN ON BOND PAPER, l page only) 

Tower of Babel, biblical but true;
lofty Eiffel will have its time, too.
stairway to heaven is man's dream
he god in him to claim God's realm.

Where have all the faithful gone?
The prayerful old and young;

pilgrims come one by one
to fill the emptiness of time.
The sun peeps behind this huge tower

once proud in its prime;

I can not wait nor my children can

to see it succumb in time. 

History marks the march of time

in events big and small

by the hand that holds the pen 
and the magic crystal ball.
