Republic Poly Trail

Been over a month away from shooting! Threw myself into the bushes once more in search of unique sights near my home, hope I'm not too rusty. :)

For those curious about this trail, it is just an unlabeled and deserted trail just beside Republic Polytechnic at the end of Woodlands Drive 91. Like Harry Potter, just bash through with a little climb and you'll reach the trail!
