Flora and Fauna

Captured in macritchie reservoir, Singapore! Inquisitive monkeys are just as mischievous though.

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.

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")

He looks in shock, did you startle him?

@Curly: i guess so :\, but he startled me too! monkeys here in macritche were known to assault humans when they sense the presence of food, so I didn't dare to flash him in case he got too angry. but many people trek along this trail by the reservoir, some of my friends from the school cross-country club goes there for a routine 12km-run every saturday! I guess these monkeys must be quite used to humans!
