An unusually bright day in the recent spate of bad weather in Singapore saw both my dad and I heading to the “bird-song” park at Ang Mo Kio, Singapore to take pictures. Groups of men come here every weekend with their cages of prized song birds and would proceed to hang them high up on poles so as to engage them in unofficial singing competitions. Capturing pictures in the area is never easy though, as the background is cluttered by the neighbourhood as well as the numerous pedestrians walking through the area. I was lucky to catch this lone bird cage amongst the many poles erected around. Using a wide aperture and a long focal length, I was able to isolate it in focus while keeping the rest of the scene a nice blur.
