Mobile photography enthusiast Jan Sy of Binondo, Manila shares an untitled bird’s eye view of the Binondo Church and its environs at night. “I’m an advocate of discipline in the Philippines,” writes Jan. “One of my ways to express my advocacy is through photos, showing the potential of Manila as a clean and smart city to live in, if only the people would cooperate to keep it clean. Inspired by 2018 Mr. Chinatown, Moises Limyuen, we encourage others to be mindful toward people and environment, to be compassionate and have a leadership attitude so that the community will grow positively, and that the future generations could enjoy what he enjoyed.” Jan was recently invited to join the Huawei Mobile Photography group.
