Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

January 5, 2014 – Singapore:Day 002

We’re back to the weekly photo challenges from WordPress (although I am a week late with this entry) and we’re back to Singapore.

The theme this week was perspective and today’s post is brought to you by our guest photographer, our daughter.

While in Singapore, we stopped by Gardens by the Bay so that we could annoy educate our two older boys be having them stare at flowers for a few hours. Our daughter, our youngest child, was delirious with joy over the prospect of walking among beautiful examples of flora. She was doubly giddy over the fact that we let her borrow our digital camera so she could snap away (or is it “click away” since it was a digital camera?) to her heart’s content.

After our trip to the twin attractions of Gardens by the Bay (Cloud Mountain and Flower Dome), my lovely wife and I reckon that our daughter took over 200 pictures of flowers and other assorted items in this venue.

Today’s answer to the WordPress theme is a pair of photos from one of those “assorted items”.

DSCN5746The picture above, taken by my daughter, appears to be a mish-mash of violet and indigo vertigo-inducing angles. Actually, as you’ve probably already surmised, it’s a close-up, but of what?

The answer is below as we pull our perspective back and see…

…actually, I have no idea what this is. I’m a writer, not a geologist (or rockologist or gemologist or whatever it is they are calling themselves these days) so all I’m going to assert is that my daughter took a picture (technically she took about six of them…as a combined total, all of her floral shots this day take up just under 700 MB of storage) of a geode. If you look closely at the bottom of the specimen, I think it might even go by the scientific name of Coinus collectium.

Regardless of whether it’s animal, vegetable, or mineral, my daughter will take a picture of it and that’s a perspective I hope she never loses.
