Coconuts Manila Photo essays

Sometimes, you have to see it (on your computer screen) to believe it. Good ole photography is one of the most effective tools in storytelling. In our photo essays, Coconuts Manila takes photos of the crowded Manila fiestas, the most intriguing political figures, and other relevant people or events which we think you HAVE to see. We occasionally try to take photos of cute cats and Instagram-friendly dishes, too. With its colorful jeepneys, decades-old churches, and charmingly chaotic streets, Manila is a rich source of subjects. There's practically an attention-grabbing visual in every corner of the sprawling metropolis, but don’t worry, we only share photos of things we think you’ll care about.
