Travel theme: The Five Elements

Since I’m living in an Asian country I decided to go with the five elements.
It’s called Wu Xing (五行) and the elements are described as followed:

  • Wood/Spring: a period of growth, which generates abundant wood and vitality
  • Fire/Summer: a period of swellness, flowering, which overbrews with fire and energy
  • Earth: the in-between transitional seasonal periods, or a separate ‘season’ known as Late Summer or Long Summer 
  • Metal/Autumn: a period of harvesting and collecting
  • Water/Winter: a period of retreat, where stillness and storage pervades

I took the pictures in Chinatown, Singapore – inspired by the various shops and temples there.
