Snow on the tip of a leaf

I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I seek to contribute to the very community that introduced me to photography - my school. I frequently and delightfully use my photography skills to serve my school and my community, as a member of the photographic society.

Please visit my About page for my journey as a photographer.

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it. (John Loengard, "Pictures Under Discussion")

To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt. (Susan Sontag, "On Photography")

hey, very good scene! Is it normal to have snow in south China now?
(Now in central-europe the weather is like in spring, windy, sunny, rainy. The snow melted before Chmas :( )

@Upperwolf: yes! the snow usually comes in around the 1st of Jan or during Chinese New Year. (somewhere between 30th Jan to 15 Feb. it's our version of "christmas"!)
