8/12 – Light show @ Changi Jewels – We seem to have quite a huge liking for the lightshows here in Singapore. Relatively recently opened to public, this huge waterfall is the eye candy of the already-pristine and breathtaking shopping mall just right beside the airport.
9/12 – Slow Shutter Waterfall @ Botanic Gardens. Ahh, I tried for this one. This is my first attempt with everything equipped and ready to go – tripod, 5 second shutter speed, and a variable ND filter. I could have bought an actual fixed ND filter, but as hobby, I don’t want to spend too much on filters and other stuff I might have to carry around too much. This is probably the best shot I got, and even then it’s still a bit blurry.
10/12 – Otter’s meal. Otters are quite a thing in Singapore, there is even this documentary thing where a group of dedicated folks will detail the otter families and their territorial fights. Well, here’s one enjoying its lunch for a change.
11/12 – Singapore in the 2050. Don’t worry, I did not time travel into the future! Well, I wanted to, but I can’t. Not yet… Anyway, this was part of the exhibition of Singapore in the 2050 (and beyond), by ArtScience Museum. Water can be such a beautiful and essential thing for us, but what happens if we let our planet go too far and let it raise the sea levels? Will jetskis and motorboats replace cars for good?
12/12 – A long reflection. Perhaps to end it off with a somewhat environmental-themed picture previously, perhaps it’s time to look into the water and simply reflect. It is nearly the end of 2021 now, and I understand that not everyone is in the right state of mind. And that is okay, we are all in this together, at least to me. You guys have came this far, have cared for one another, and in a way, there is definitely humility still out there from every one of you. Empathy, compassion, politeness, care, it’s all around us if we take some time to slow down.
