Sunday is usually reserved for family but it has become my habit to sneak out from bed as early as 6.00 am while my wife is still fast asleep. I would go to any nearby areas to shoot for 2 – 3 hours and return home with breakfast for my wife by 10.00 am. Today was no exception, I went to Wild Wild West, a 5 minutes drive from my house.
Wild Wild West is a wasteland at the end of corporation road. It was a popular macro site and frequented by many members from Nature Photographic Society, Singapore during the period 2007 – 2012. Unfortunately, this place was overrun by bulldozers in June 2012 for redevelopment into an industrial area. The following photo was taken in early 2012 when it was still as wild as before.
Construction is still going on now with some factories and warehouses already built.
Despite the current pitiful state, there are still pockets of greenery for macro photography. I must admit that there were not as many interesting subjects when compared with few years ago. Here are a few shots taken from today’s outing:
