Capitol Theatre, Singapore

Morning Shoot with YS

Went on another early morning shoot with YS at the amphitheatre of the Esplanade. On this day, the waters aren’t as still as one of my earlier shoots, but it’s still a reasonably good time to shoot the Marina Bay Sands and the skyline as the water is still calmer compared to the evening. The […]

I have not seen a rainbow, much less two rainbows for a long time now. Today, after a short period of rain, my father alerted me to the rainbow and I rushed to get my iPhone and camera to capture this rare moment. It started with one rainbow, but after a few shots on the […]

Little India – Traditional Indian Stalls

With bigger bookstores and new magazines all around the country, we seldom get to see the traditional magazine stalls anymore. But here in Little India, there are still some around. The books and magazines are neatly spread out on the table, and more are hung from clotheslines at the top. This makes for a colourful […]
