The Tower Of Bauble

Welcome To A Singapore Christmas

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON

A week ago, I was in Singapore where I spotted this elaborate tower of silver and gold baubles of many shapes and sizes. I took three or four shots before I realised I could try and focus on a central bauble high above my head. By doing so, I could capture a view of the arcade as well as a clear view of Singapore in the reflection. Look carefully and you'll see me reflected in the middle of the bauble as well. Then look below my feet and you'll see the beautiful gold decorations reflected from far below. The second shot (below) is a different view of the same thing. By this time, it had started to rain and I was looking for somewhere to shelter.

Great shots! I took some similar ones this morning, it's interesting to see the reflection of the camera in the bauble. I really like the first one, where everything seems to be radiating from the central bauble.

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year to you and your family.
