Weekly Photo Challenge: In the background

Haw par villa, a park that illustrates the 18 levels of hell(十八层地狱) or Dante’s Inferno 9 circles of hell. It’s here that this vibrant green plant framed by the reflection of the overhanging trees in the background, against a backdrop of underwater foilage caught my eye.


I honestly have no particular liking towards the flamingoes. This probably stemmed from the manner in which they are frequently photographed: as a stunning sea of red and pink. Cause really, I don’t like the colour pink so I’m biased. Lol. In this picture, I intentionally processed it this way so as to shy away from the typical photos these birds form. I wanted to demonstrate the subtle hints of red against a black background so as to better highlight the unique beauty of these birds.
