Bentilador

Day 86 - March 27, 2010

 

Bentiladors are a common household appliance that can be found in almost every Filipino home. I have one in my room but I'd rather get rid of it because it doesn't quite fit in with the decor.

 

Ron Rezek, founder of The Modern Fan Company agrees. In an interview with theNew York Times he once said that, "portable fans are the ugly ducklings of the fan industry," mainly because most are enclosed in cages.

 

Photography on the other hand teaches us that there is beauty in everything. Get some golden light from the setting to sun to shine on its stainless steel "cage" then add some bokeh and this electric fan becomes a sight to behold.

 

What do you do to keep yourself cool on a hot summer's day?
