    While passing by Quiapo in Manila, Philippines I stumbled upon this electronic billboard beside the Quiapo Church and started recording it.
    This electronic billboard is a sign of how influences are being mixed up in the Philippines- Catholicism brought by the Spanish, TV/video of the Americans and technology from Japan…
    The Philippines were colonized by Spaniards (more than 300 years), Americans (40 years), Japan (3 years)
