Juan Luna – Painter and Patriot

January 4, 2016

This is the National Historical Monument of Juan Luna, one of our great heroes and a painter. Groupy ni Jose Rizal. Kapatid ni Heneral Antonio Luna. The monument is located at Luna Triangle, Padre Burgos St., Manila. Shot taken last December 2015 on my way to NCCA located in Intramuros [inside the walls], or the Old Manila during the Spanish regime in the Philippines.
