Flats bracing for another new day

Posted by Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 30 July 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

I love catching silhouettes during dawn & dusk. When I caught sight of this silhouette of a couple of HDB blocks, I did not hesitate and snapped a few pictures just to get the correct exposure. The flats in view are situated in Bishan. I could see them from the rugby field of my school every day.

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")
