Today I have a much a true photography veteran for a guest blogger. Here's what Lip Seng had to say:
Image title: Squabbling Flamingoes

Name: Lip Seng, Tan

Location: Singapore

About your image: This is one of three images of mine that were used by Kodak for promotion as a collector’s-edition Singapore Mass Rapid Transit card in 1995. Flamingoes are very common photographic subjects found in our Jurong Bird Park. However, to freeze the perfect, decisive moment is a real challenge for photographers. I have collected many images of these birds during my past visits to the park. This particular one is still my favourite among them all.

Your favourite subjects: Pictorial, Photo Travel, Candid, Spontaneous moments, Landscape, Nature

How did you start out in photography? I started shooting record shots for social occasions at the age of twelve. During my school days, I started to shoot pictures and participated in international student salons.
