As 2011 draws to a close, I thought I’d share some of my favourite photos from 2011. So here goes.
Western Australia Trip
I went for a short trip to Perth, Western Australia with my friend Clarence where we enjoyed ourselves a lot. It was also fun to catch up with our respective friends and making new ones in the process.
General Elections 2011
2011 is the year which we have 2 elections — the General Elections as well as the Presidential Elections. I had the opportunity to shoot a couple of the election rallies and it was quite an experience to be there. The election rallies of the opposition parties drew large crowds, and this one by the National Solidarity Party is of no exception. Nicole Seah was a hot favourite.
2011 sees the return of the Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) railway land to Malaysia. It triggered a lot of public interest in preserving the Rail Corridor left behind when it’s returned to Malaysia, and the final closure of the Tanjong Pagar and Bukit Timah railway stations. On the night of 30 Jun 2011, the last train finally left Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Gilbert, David and I covered the last few weeks of operation.
Though not much of a morning person, I really like the look of the Singapore Skyline and Marina Bay Sands in the early morning, before and during daybreak. There is sense of peace, calm and quiet not found after daybreak, when things get busier and even the water gets more ripply. Thus this is the only time where you can get a near-perfect reflection of the buildings.
