Portraits of History

Just completed the design for the exhibition poster and rushing on the website for the exhibition. Exciting! For the past weeks I was nursing the gout and painting watercolor for this shows. I was encourage by Chyi Yun Shiah of Viridian Art House to exhibit my watercolor works. However, I was torn between digital photography and watercolor. Eventually, I decided to digitize and watercolor, combining old scene and new technology, paralleling history and currency with watercolor and digital photography, as well as digital image manipulation, completing them in full circle, putting the past in the present and the present in the past. Recalling those words of T.S. Elliot. I can't remember the full quotation but if one google perhaps one can find it. That is the wonder of the web and search engine.

Old Singapore – Clarke Quay and Fort Canning

It is interesting to look at the old photographs and start noticing changes being made to the landscape. It was investment well made when I got my negative scanned professionally and now I have the privilege to look at them and ponder, what are the changes in the photographs.
Join me in this fun game to explore Clarke Quay and also Fort Canning, some of the buildings that look old may be added later on, and we thought it was historical. Add your view to the Comment.

One Bodhi Tree

Documenting with Photography, writing, history and human spirit. Some want to conserve the graveyard, others wants to conserve their ancestors’ history, but here they want to conserve the Bodhi Tree, perhaps for the Genius Loci, or perhaps Lord Krishna and its humble temple anchored the fond memories of the boys who grew up in this village. For sometimes it is beyond reason that some things are done in this way. For me, I paint the moment for eternity. For the last milliseconds were gone when they passed us. Only the photographs can recall the stories again and again vividly.
