New photographic works has been wanting of late because of the drab, gloomy weather that will herald the arrival of the rainy season in Singapore. How I wish the weather can be like that of Sydney, Australia, where it is claimed that over 300 days of the year are brightly sunlit…

I took this picture at a interesting fountain display next to Darling Harbour on my visit to Sydney in September 2003. The interesting patterns of the fountain alone, already made great subject material for photography. Imagine my delight when some children made the fountain their playground for the day! I love the strong contrast between the almost monochromatic colours of the fountain and the bright colours worn by the child, illuminated in brilliant lighting.
