Tomorrow, it will be forgotten

23Apr08

I have a fascination with cranes and how Singapore is surrounded by so many of them today. Perhaps it’s this idea of how such a simple piece of equipment towers over all of us and moves so silently, cutting through the skies above as if waving a magic wand. They come and go just as quietly, never intending to stay forever. Such an ephemeral existence is contradicted by what is left after it goes, a permanent site in what was once empty or something else in our memories. Here is my snapshot of it before it goes and leaves us with something to replace this memory.

    in nepal ppl often ask for a picture of s’pore and you kinda wanna show them something representative yet not tourist-y. this snap might just do it – a country flanked by cranes (ever-changing) + buildings (structure), the big black empty sky above almost saying, “what next?”. in s’pore sky’s the limit and you never quite know what’s brewing.

    also the cranes look like an image out of an x-ray. like the backbones and spines of the buildings behind them. but, i exaggerate. because all i really wanna say is: awesome picture. 😀 it’s going to have to replace Light and Dark.

    and then the lovely writeup – “cutting through the skies above as if waving a magic wand”. very nice.
