Calesa

Calesa is a horse-drawn carriage introduced in the Philippines by the Spaniards circa 18th century. It used to be a mode of transportation that only the nobles and high ranked officials could afford.

I took the photo of this particular Calesa inside Fort Santiago last month and processed it in sepia tone to emphasize how vintage it is.
