Another Leaf in a Park, Singapore 2009

Singapore, 2009

I love here how the picture goes from blurry to sharp, from left to right in the frame. And where it is sharp, you can see the structure of the leaf.

I used my new camera of the time, a Canon Powershot G9 to take this. The reason it is worthy of mentioning, is because sharp close-ups are really hard to do handheld. Especially on something like a leaf, which is nearly always slightly moving.

This photo also reminds me of a time when I spent a lot of time in Singapore. I loved walking in the backstreets. It is the only place I know where Borders Bookshop would fill on Friday and Saturday nights.

In the U.K., I think we take history for granted, everywhere we go we are surrounded by it. Things which in other countries, would have people clamouring to preserve, here would be casually demolished.

I recall this is a type of advertisement which was put in the entrance to newsagents and tobacconists. In a similar vein, some shops would have large advertisements painted on their walls.
