When I was in college, it seemed that the brainiest, most "admired" degree was engineering. Engineering, engineers, dreamers in chrome, steel and glass come back to mind each time I visit our family in Singapore.
The amount of construction is mind boggling... it is a small island after all. Each new building over shadows the complexities of the last....case in point is Gardens by the Bay with its dome shaped glass pods that send shards of mercurial light upon the carpet of plants, trees, shrubs and ponds.
Visiting Gardens by the Bay is a bit like Alice tumbling into Wonderland. From the sky high windows, suspended bridges to the floor covered with lush vegetation. There is so much to share about this magical place that this is the first part...the engineering phase.
When I took these photos, I had in mind the beautiful architectural compositions that Brenda shares on her blog. I felt that they translated best in black and white, with a few touches of color to delineated the living from the man-made.
This is the very loft of the structure. Vertigo is not welcome. I couldn't help but think about the men and women who dreamed and designed with lofty thoughts and the builders who climbed these heights to create this amazing structure. It is all quite breathtaking.
In a few days we will be closer to ground level. Amazing as the glass and steel structure is, the living plants, trees, blossoms, ferns, palms are truly breathtaking.....Alice never had it so good.
Thanks Brenda, for reminding me that those structures that surround, hold, touch and support us are incredibly beautiful and inspirational. Brenda hosts Third Thursday Challenge stop by her blog and see her amazing work and the photography of others on this challenge.
