I had an adventure this morning, running through Dairy Farm Nature Reserve, and then finding myself at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. I covered only 7km but it was a delightful hour wandering through paths new to me, and while I have run through both these areas often, I did not realise they were connected. The joy of discovery!
On one of the steep stretches of very tall steps cut into the slopes, I huffed and puffed myself right in front of this fascinating sight.
Thought of DelseyJane’s RegularRandom as I delightedly snapped all around this root system; although I have to admit I was there for a little longer than 5 minutes. I just found these curlicues so fascinating! The roots stretched all the way across the path to a huge tree which I couldn’t get to.
Want to join in a Regular Random? Here’s how:
- choose a subject or a scene
- spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
- try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
- have fun!
- tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to delseyjane
Lesson 2 of Blogging U’s Developing Your Eye II is on Manipulating Light. We are asked to use the light available to create a particular effect — use it to cast shadows or highlights to create a moody image. I thought long and hard on this one, and shot quite a few with this idea in mind.
Today’s Feature Photo’s is my favourite of all my attempts. I like how it creates a sense of mystery; a little ominous, a little dark, hopefully leaving you with a question: where on earth am I? Here’s another look up at the roots that fascinated me so much.
