Ruby Red: Red dotted cap


I like this photo so much because it showed the creation of two budding photographers. I posted this on my other site: annkschin.blogspot.com and it was a very popular photo.

During my sixteen years in Singapore, one of my favourite places with the children was the Singapore Science Centre. In the humid Singapore, the airconditioned building was a welcomed place to spend the whole day. It was a wonderful hands-on place. The entrance fee was cheap too. When I felt too stuffy inside the building, I would go outside to view the many spice and herb plants.

This photograph was taken by D and G, budding photographers at 15 and 11. Sam was three. Many had tried to duplicate this photograph after seeing this. But none had succeeded. This involves two mirrors attached to a hinge, and by moving the mirrors at different angles, you get different number of reflections.

I took this photo to school, and encouraged my students to experiment with two mirrors. They were very curious.

Ann, I think that is a wonderful and creative experience for the students. And I'm still smiling at the young boy in the photo. Thanks.
