The All Natural Toa Payoh Town Garden

2009-08-26 8

A quiet and quaint garden that lets you relax in the midst of the hustle and bustle.

Toa Payoh Town Garden, or more affectionately known as Toa Payoh Garden, is a garden that lets you take your mind off work and soak in all that natural beauty. Constructed in the 1970s, it is a place that continues to remain relevant even in today’s busy world. It is also one of the most sought after areas for wedding couples looking for a place to shoot in the 70s. In fact, my parents had their wedding photo shoot right in this garden!

The lush open areas, pavilions, and rustic-looking gazebos make this garden a perfect place for families to gather on a lazy Sunday afternoon. A bus depot, shopping malls, and even a cinema complex is nearby, making this a truly wonderful place to hang out should you want to escape from the busy city life. Oh, and keep a lookout for wedding couples taking their photographs too!

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
