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.
