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 (:

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
