Three in One

This photo was not taken from India.  No, it's not in Italy!  It's captured from Subiaco- a sub-urb of Perth, Western Australia.

Today, Subiaco (or Subi for the locals) is famous for the Subiaco Oval- a football stadium in the capital city of Western Australia.  Just a few steps from the Subiaco train station (where this image was taken) there are various shops and a market which are popular destinations for both the locals and the tourists.

The Noongar Idigenous people once occupied the area until the Italian Benedictine monks arrived in 1851.  The said religious order named the place after Subiaco, in the Province of Rome in Lazio, Italy.

Naalala ko yung isang play na napanood ko maraming taon na ang nakakaraan. Dun sa play poster, nakalarawan ang isang lalaking naghihintay sa ilalim ng puno.

Waiting for Godot.

This photo conjures up lots of meaning.

Waiting for a son.
Waiting for a train.
Waiting for a love.
