A Brief Look in Singapore Botanic Gardens

16 Sep

The weather has been very cloudy for the past days with spots of rain every now and then. What does overcast days mean for photographers? A great time for macro photo shoot! A good location is the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

I have not been there for more than 5 years. Mine bad. So many things to see back home when it just need a wee bit more effort. So during lunch time today, I take a short walk at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Only have about 30 minutes before time is up. I will come back at a later date for more pictures.

Here is a map of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
