A Single Flower in Singapore

You can find flowers everywhere in Singapore, even in the airport where orchids were artfully arranged on the stainless steel platforms of the luggage carousels.

There were flowers in the malls, like this single perfect lotus. A Lotus Flower Blooms in a Singapore MallThen of course the Singapore Botanical Garden had more species of spectacular and unusual flowers.

  1. Your lotus is so beautiful WOWZA. I absolutely adore your flower gallery for this week Lens-Artist challenge. Thanks so much for playing along 😀

  2. Singapore is one of the few places in the far east that we’ve not been but the images of it I’ve seen make me sorry we’ve passed on it so far. Your floral display makes me wish even more to get there. They’re all beautiful but I think my favorite is the orchid with purple. It’s very special.

    • Working on these photos made me want to run out and buy an orchid to brighten up my rainy day. Singapore is an interesting mix of intriguing modern architecture sitting next to abundant greenery, and great food too. Worth visiting for sure.

  3. It’s funny when you’re looking for a solitary flower for this challenge how many pictures have more than one in – often many more. I especially like the spider lily picture – you’ve created a very interesting effect with the lines and the colours.

    • Orchids always come in sprays so taking a photo with just one in it meant getting up really close. Fortunately I went nuts taking photos there so I had a lot of photos to pick from. The spider lily had such an intriguing shape, and the white flowers really stood out against the dark green leaves.
