Week 30/52 : Deep in my shallow dreams

It's been raining nonstop the whole day. Classes have been suspended and most offices are closed. Manila is flooded once again. Authorities managed to evacuate some citizens in time but from what I hear on the news there are still a lot of stranded people. I'm lucky to be living in an area that's not affected easily by floods, but a lot of people aren't so fortunate. So far it doesn't seem to be as bad as the Ondoy situation back in 2009 but that doesn't mean it will stay that way. We're all just praying that the rain will stop soon.

 

Anyway I shot this this morning. It's obviously inspired by the current situation we're in at the moment. The water and the rain are Photoshopped (this was shot inside my room) but my "wet look" is not. I actually stood under the shower (with my clothes on) before I took this picture to make it more realistic. Unfortunately I think I might have caught a cold from doing that because I didn't hop right back in the shower immediately afterwards. I'm loading up on Vitamin C right now and hoping that this will help me feel better. I'd feel pretty stupid if I ended up sick because of one picture while other people are out there right now battling Mother Nature.
