Tasty Durian Building (Singapore's Esplanade in Abstract)
Durian smells like hell but tastes like heaven. The durian fruit is being condemned when it comes to its smell but is aptly called "the King of Fruits." A seasonal fruit in Singapore, one can find in the island country an oddly-shaped building called the Esplanade that is referred to as "The Durian" by locals. Its architectural form projects the fruit's thorny physical tributes.
Upon arriving at the site, I was overwhelmed by its popularity and it was a challenged for me to compose an image that is not familiar or not the usual. Armed with a zoom lens, I was able to achieved this image by sheer observation of the sky. Thank God I was given great clouds on that short trip or else it was a failure. Hope you like this shot. Singapore has many landmarks but the Esplanade does stand out. An architectural marvel indeed.
