Chrysanthemum Charm

Posted by Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 16 June 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Like I mentioned in the previous picture, wild chrysanthemum flowers in China are unmatched by any wild chrysanthemum flowers in Singapore - if there are any. The chrysanthemum flowers in Singapore are mostly nursery-bred - they have huge petals and a bright yellow colour. Well those are nice too but that's... Synthetic!

Picture-wise, I think the setting sun in the background makes the picture more interesting and appealing to the eye (:

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")
