Young sharpshooters see the sublime in the everyday

Intense staring happens all the time in a multi-storey carpark and Vanessa Lorraine Chea was doing the same recently.

But unlike most motorists who keep their eyes peeled for an empty parking lot, the 16-year-old Temasek Polytechnic student, who was enroute to lunch on foot, found herself gazing at beauty.

From where she stood, the view of linear carpark railings - horizontal, vertical, straight and curved - stretching into the distance and bathed in light and shadows, held her captive.

She caught the moment on a compact camera which she carries with her and included the photograph in her submission for the City Developments Limited (CDL) Singapore Young Photographer Award competition.
