To Town

These are the railway tracks heading towards the stop at the heart of the city - Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Today these tracks have been "decommissioned" and the station within its vicinity, in the coming years, will be transformed into a fine heritage trail allowing for families to immerse themselves completely during their free time. That being said, a great historical controversy surrounding Singapore's relations with Malaysia has come to an end and this marks a new era in the relationship between these two neighbours.

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")
