#ABCWaters on Instagram

InstagramArticle

Instagram was first launched in 2010. It was just another app. In fact, it was a common joke that Instagram is actually Twitter for those who can’t read. Well, not anymore. It is now a success story which managed to attract 1 million users within 60 days after its launch. By end of 2014, this simple photo and filter app has left Twitter for dead.

Whenever I meet a photo enthusiast that said  Singapore is a boring place for photography, I will always tell them to keep on searching (online). There are plenty of mobile photo applications  such as Instagram, Flickr, VSCO, 500px or Pinterest, which you can use to search for photography examples using relevant hashtags created by like-minded individuals. You will soon realise that Singapore is not such a boring place after all.

For example, one can simply browse through Instagram to check out the interesting photos taken around our reservoirs. Coincidentally, there is buzz at #ABCWaters on Instagram and I have picked out some interesting photos which I would like to share with the readers.

@nuru.okajun I am not too sure if I am getting anyone into trouble, but I don’t think you are allowed on this platform at this hour! But you guys look so safe and comfortable, so I guess that is all that matters right?

@PUBsingapore Nothing speaks #ABCWaters like this photograph. Well, then again, you guys are the creators of this initiative.

I can’t really tell if this beautiful photograph by @scottkjphotography is a clear depiction of an actual #ABCWaters site though. If it is not, perhaps @PUBsingapore should consider making this an Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters site.

You see! There is nothing wrong with “the place”.  What really makes a photograph is subjective and does not always have to be colourful or sharp. However,  your intention has to be clear, but not necessarily well-received or understood. This is what sets real masters like Steve McCurry and Henri Cartier-Bresson apart from photo enthusiasts like you and me.
