I spent a happy hour exploring the charming neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru last week. It is one of Singapore’s oldest housing estates turned trendy by all the cafes and shops that have taken up residence. While we visit to shop and eat here frequently, I haven’t taken the time to wander around. It is amazing how different things look when one is not pressured by time or agenda; when we have time to stop and peer at fruits growing, to discover hidden gems.
Lesson 10 of Daily Post’s photography tutorial Developing Your Eye, also challenges us to take some time to look at our subject a little differently, this time, in monochrome. Hence, my Feature Photo. I love the vibrance and energy that comes with vivid colours. But I have discovered that I love the textures and shadows that come alive in black and white. When I take the time to look at my subject in both colour and monochrome, I am afforded a look from different perspectives.
Do you have a preference for Colour or Monochrome photographs?
This is my contribution for Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Tour Guide.
