It Ain't The Bermuda Triangle

But Do You Know What This Is?

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON

Sometimes the most unusual sights are really the most common, everyday sights. It's only when you look at them from a unique angle or in a rare light that they seem so very different. These were just postcards on a rack, taken during my time in Singapore's captivating Chinatown. The photo below shows the rack with the postcards in full view, but the first shot makes you think, doesn't it?

You should have brought the card holder back for me, haha.

I was close - thought it was a nearly empty magazine rack. How neat to take an ordinary item and make a great post from it.

Hi Stewart,

I did!!

It was difficult getting it into my suitcase, though!

Hi Janice,

You were so close that we'll give you full marks anyway!!

Good detective work ...



David said...

This looks amazing! The depth of field is just right. I guess you must have used f3 or less?

The bird's eye view, or the worm's eye view--both offer a unique perspective that the human eye will tend to miss.

Great work!

Happy New Year!

San said...

The two perspectives--fun!

Great images, David.

I tried to guess what it is, but failed miserably. Thanks for the enlightenment.
