The Truth is Out There!

Even as night falls, the light of justice continues to shine, albeit with the help from a little moonlight and heaps of electrical lights! This shot is of the dome on top of the old Supreme Court Building, Singapore.

Justice Shineth

Compare the huge glare from the lamp-post in the foreground against that tiny crescent moon in the left corner background, and obviously the eye knows the light emitted from the lamp is brighter and stronger than that of the moonlight. The truth is of course quite the contrary - moonlight which is sunlight reflected off the moon is probably so much stronger in terms of light unit measurement.

And so in life, what you (or lady justice) see(s) may not always be true with the truth still out there!

Just like:
  • that really beautiful deep red juicy looking apple I chose, which turned out to be bland tasting like sawdust.....
  • that hawker stall with a really long queue (in Singapore, if there's a queue for food, usually, one expects the food to be pretty good), but it turned out that the hawker is merely really slow in cooking and dishing out his food.....
  • that really good-looking guy in that cool-looking car who cut right into my lane causing me to jam on my brakes and utter language not suitable for publishing.....
Too 'cheem' (too deep) - don't bother digesting this then, just enjoy the photo and impart your own story!

Hahaha, I like your analysis and the picture. I totally agree on the food queues, sometimes I get fooled abt the "artificial" crowd too esp when I am in a new place.

*giggle* *giggle* too 'cheem'-ah - I was having one of those lapses when the mind explores, extrapolates and suggests without any reins whatsoever!
