Spiritual vibrancy

Posted by
Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 8 August 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Right after I stepped into the gate of the temple, I saw ladies who arranged themselves in such neat rows and who adorned themselves with such vibrantly colored dresses.

It's amazing. I've spent over fifteen years in Singapore and yet I only witnessed this vibrant part of our culture last weekend. Those who complain of the little red dot lacking of cultural heritage must be too busy focused on adoring our modernized skyline to have time to experience the cultural relics that our forefathers have left behind.

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.

Great shot, particularly as it was a candid. Superb use of dof and focus.

@Curly: Thank you for your comment. I was experimenting with the 135mm F2.0 and I was also amazed at the dof that it allowed me to create.
