Snow on the tip of a leaf

Posted by Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 29 December 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I picked up a camera in January 2009 in my school's photographic society, and I have never looked back. Years later, I have explored various different forms of photography, from event coverage, to fashion, to documentary, to photography using DIY lenses, and most recently, to film.

I must thank my seniors who have been so instrumental in developing in me a passion for this art. It has been said that there are two kinds of teachers: one gives the man the fish; the other teaches the man to fish. I believe my seniors are of a third kind: they have made me want to fish. They have imparted me with important technical skills, but they have also inspired me to continue photographing for six years.

"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

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"!)
