I love bridges. I fondly remember holding my mother’s hand or her pocket as I slowly but surely climb those stone stairs of the overhead bridge. I remember how I was scared of crossing bridges for fear that they would fall because I saw cracks in between the stone slabs and big gaps in between two steps of the stairs. I had to cross an overhead bridge at least once every fortnight when I was little, as I had to […]
In response to Where’s my backpack? Travel Theme: Wind. Power and Livelihood The wind is ever-present but always invisible. The wind sometimes appears as a form of energy that provides power supply to industries and homes. The wind is considered clean and green energy as it is a renewable natural resource. The wind turns turbines such as those in the photo below, and kinetic energy is converted to mechanical energy. The mechanical energy is then either used to perform work or converted […]
In response to Nancy Merrill Photography A Photo A Week Challenge: Recording History. Dusty Electricity I was in the control station of the KTM Rail that connected Singapore to Malaysia for an estimated one hundred years. I noticed the electricity switch box, electricity meter, and many power points for three-pin plugs. I took a particular interest in the thick layer of dust that had settled on the exposed areas of the power points and could not help but wonder how much […]
In response to Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Red. I have chosen a photo of a cherry drink that sits atop a red tablecloth. Dinner that night was one of those ‘one-half each and the relationship will not sour’ type of moment. Enjoy!
In response to Sylvain LANDRY, SL-Week 3: Kezako. When I found this photo in my albums, I could not help but exclaim, “but what the hell is it?” I know that I am quite strange because I take photos of things such as condensed water droplets on the roof of a bus stop, or cracks on the ground. I have had questions such as, “why would you look there?” “Why would you photograph that?” The truth is; I do not know. […]
In response to Where’s my backpack? Travel Theme: Grasses. When it is there, I do not really think about it. When it is gone, I begin to lament the loss. Where it grows, there must be water. Where it dies, there must be drought. Who does it live for? I do not know. Who could kill it? Sometimes, Man. Why is it so strong? It has long, deep roots. Why does it seem to always come back from nothing? Maybe […]
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Close Up.” Love Letter Leaf I must be the luckiest person alive. The tree. Not the tree. Probably Nature. Is telling me, “I *heart* you”. That leaf is so beautiful! It is a perfect heart shape. *Spot the leaf mentioned from the photo below before reading on. * * * * * * * * * * * * I need to zoom in on it! Oh, my gorgeous Love Letter […]
I was pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful pink flower weaving its way out of the sand on the beach! Plus, look at that beautiful perfect star shape formed by the shaded lines on the petals! EDIT: This is identified as a Railroad Vine after some search. 😊 There was no flower elsewhere. Many leaves crawled along. Do you know the name of this flower/ plant? Have you seen other plants growing on the beach? Feel free to post […]
