Most of the photos taken during the height of monsoon floods have shown destruction, hopelessness, even tragedy. But one photographer, Paul Quiambao, had a different perspective.

His photos, mostly taken at the centuries-old University of Sto. Tomas in Manila, show calm and serenity.

"It is really how we see things. We can choose to see the beautiful side. Kumbaga seeing the beauty and hope amidst the chaos," Quiambao tells Yahoo! Southeast Asia.

Quiambao, the official quadricentennial photographer of UST and a former editor of the school publication The Varsitarian, says he would like to show Pinoys that one can still see beauty in unfortunate events.

"I want to show sa mga Filipinos, especially my fellow Thomasians na there's beauty in every tragedy, na may reason parin para ngumiti. Anything can be beautiful naman, you just have to know where and how to look at it..we just have to keep positive," said Quiambao, whose photos are starting to go viral on social networking sites. He is also using his photos to urge students to help the flood victims.

"To all Thomasians who are willing to help for the relief operations, just go to your respective Local SCs or proceed to the CSC Office (Tan Yan Kee Bldg. 2nd floor, Room 201) when classes resume," Quiambao said in his photo captions.

The photographer also notes that he would like to show that UST, which has been a victim of countless flooding incidents, stands strong.

Hmm, something like the oyster coping with the pain and irritation caused by a grain of sand--thereby producing a pearl...

good choice of spots. it could have been a different scene if the pictures were taken at the squatter areas. will there be beauties there?
