Friday Shootout: reflections.



I like this photo so much because it showed the creation of two budding photographers. I had previously posted this before I joined the Friday shoot out gang.

During my sixteen years in Singapore, one of my favourite places with the children was the Singapore Science Centre. In the humid Singapore, the air conditioned building was a welcomed place to spend the whole day. It was a wonderful hands-on place. The entrance fee was cheap too. When I felt too stuffy inside the building, I would go outside to view the many spice and herb plants.

This photograph was taken by D and G, budding photographers at 15 and 11. Sam was three. Many had tried to duplicate this photograph after seeing this. But none had succeeded. This involves two mirrors attached to a hinge, and by moving the mirrors at different angles, you get different number of reflections.

I took this photo to school, and encouraged my students to experiment with two mirrors. They were very curious.

Thank you all for your comments. My kids are very happy to read them. It was my oldest Deborah who started me on blogging, and my youngest Sam who sometimes is reluctant to pose for me.

That straw berry cap was given by A. A neighbour from UK married to a Turkish man. When ever I look at this pix , I think of her. We unfortunately lost that cap when we visited the Singapore zoo.

My youngest sis Grace gave him the wind breaker. It looked like a graduation gown.
