April 2014
This is one old neighborhood in the heartland of Singapore looking to redevelopment, residence had long moved to other estates, leaving behind old structures like this sheltered walkway, stone table and chairs that had seen the hustle and bustle of the past, they too are in the path of new constructions and will not be here for long,


Tree and Shelter

I don't usually take a second look at the shelter or tree when passing by, but today, the leafless tree and sunbeam on the rooftop seems to be beckoning me, leading my sight down to the table, than down to the grass field. the melancholic atmosphere of this deserted sheltered walkway led me to visualize a faint composition of "Shelter", I thought, in black and white, it should be gorgeous, and was quite sure I had spotted some aesthetics quality hidden in the mundane surrounding. So I set in motion to take as many photos as possible to cover every possible perspective, which allow me to pick the best composition, retaining as much of the original image size without cropping or minimal cropping at best during post.

I spent quite a bit of time editing this image, when finally done, the aesthetics drawn were more than I had envisioned during shooting, revealing the vision and the talent of the landscape artist who had commissioned this structure.
