My Singapore Story: Woodlands Center Road.

Being one of the most globalised countries in the world, vintage architecture in Singapore is a rarity these days. And I can't think of anywhere else that still possesses such beauty, except probably only here.

Funny how I'd rather be engulfed in the earlier centuries than the present. Or maybe it's just me unable to accept modern architecture. But it really broke my heart, knowing that a place I do patronise on a regular basis, will completely vanish from my sight.

Which is why I thought it would be really important for me to treasure it, to embark on a trail of precious memories held dearly there, before I can no longer see it ever again.

Project Solitude - A Photography Assignment.

I was tasked to uncover my perception of the theme "Solitude" - which I've so gladly chosen for my visual narrative proposal as part of a photography assignment. Most people (if not all) tend to view being solitary as something negative, however that doesn't seem to be the case for me, so the objective of this theme is basically to eliminate the stereotype - and share how I actually see it.

The requirements of the assignment are as follows:
  • One human element must be included in every photo
  • Required to shoot random strangers
  • Every photo must come with a caption relating to the theme
Gulp, sounds challenging, ain't it?
It sure was, and I ran out of ideas as to where and what to shoot - I was also quite afraid to actually ask permission from strangers if it would be okay for me to take their photo (hashtag anxiety problems) - but thankfully, with the help of  a few friends, I managed to chiong this assignment after all (plus my lecturer seemed to like most of them, luckily).

Mimi Kass Bridal - 041014

It was my first time at Hort Park and while waiting for the models to get ready, I did a bit of exploring on my own - and I was so glad I did. I feel that the place is just really breathtaking and full of such lush greenery.
