Since I grew up in a rural town, I can’t provide a photo of a place where I grew up. This week’s theme reminds me of a childhood friend who lives in this fascinating city in Singapore! I love to travel, but I haven’t been there yet. I haven’t dreamed living in an urban area. I’m a laid-back person who would prefer to live in the country side, yet versatile enough to take the challenge of city living.
Spanning 101 hectares, the gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Central Garden are adjacent to the Marina Bay Sand. There are crystal curve buildings and at the center is a state-of-the-art, Flower Dome. In this shot, the photographer used the biggest tripod he’d ever used, the metal flat form at the roof top of the Marina Barrage, since he left his Quick Release plate in the hotel. (ISO 100 24mm F28 2.0 Sec.)
Featuring these photos is to introduce a talented photographer friend, Rene Ricaforte. He consented to feature his photos in my blog. He took these breath-taking shots on his trip there.
