Reflections

Artificial pools and fountains within cities also started off as fixtures that were purely functional- to provide the populace with drinking water. But over the centuries their purpose has evolved and have today become mostly ornate fixtures.

Where the Sky and Water Touch

I was fascinated by the converging reflections of two of the most spectacular man made structures in Singapore in this pool- the art and science museum in the foreground and the Marina Bay Sands tower with its ship-like structure supported by 3 pillar blocks.

The leaves of the lilies in the pool somehow bring in a sense of realism to the two soaring structures that could be something out of pure fantasy.

    I like how the roof of the museum looks like a fish swimming in the water.

      That is such an interesting perspective- I never thought of it that way.

    A nice picture capturing both the pond and the structures. To see them in the reflection is a nice change from the usual.

      Yeah and I guess you never could have brought them in the same frame shooting from the ground?
