Catching on to quite a few street photographers’ inspirations, I have decided to do my own photowalk. The idea is just to walk around a certain vicinity and take some interesting shots with no particular theme in mind. This is of course another good way to hone my photography skills and to further train myself to be bolder in street photography, especially with people.
So my first destination is Chinatown. This place is always full of surprises, doesn’t matter how many times I have been there, every single visit brings different views and photography opportunities.
Walking from Cityhall direction, we will pass this bridge to enter into the CBD area and also the Chinatown section further up. No ERP needed if you are on foot.
The uniqueness of Singapore’s town urban planning, we get to see old buildings with skyscrapers not too far off.
An interesting “corner”… If you want to speak, please apply for permit..
It would be cool if our HDB windows can be like this.
A normal day in Chinatown.
It happened to be the Hungry Ghost Festival when I was there. Such altars are common with the Chinese, praying for blessings and protection.
This man seems to be lost in thoughts, probably thinking what did he forget to buy.
Some are rushing home to prepare dinner.
Some are just waiting for time to pass.
Some just enjoys the peace and tranquillity of the environment.
This is Chinatown.
