Drawing with Light

Went out to Telok Ayer street on Saturday to take some photos for my Singapore Studies contest. The title of the contest was “Changing Landscape of Globalisation: Good or Bad?”. An idea hit me to take a photo in the CBD area, consisting of shophouses as the foreground and the towering skyscapers as the backdrop.

So I got down to the Chinatown area to recce for a good shot. Took the MRT to Raffles Place and then I started walking around the area and towards Telok Ayer street.

Was walking along Amoy Street when I realised it could be a great place to shoot the picture I’ve had wanted. Walked further down the street before I took this photo:

Met up with Hairol after exploring the area for a while and took some photos while exploring.

Since Hairol wanted to get some stuff for Hari Raya, we walked down from Telok Ayer to Marina Square. (Yes! Walked)
The haze has created some interesting lighting properties, so while walking towards Marina Square, I took some photos along the way with some great effects. The photos can be found on the Flickr link on the sidebar.

Got my hands on a Sony alpha dSLR at the Sony Gallery at Wisma Atria. The feeling of the shutter releasing was wonderful. Very tempted to get a dSLR. Anyone willing to give me a Canon EOS 400D. (350D also can)

The short essay I wrote with the photo I’ve taken. Thanks to Hairol, Christabel and Jun Kwang for their invaluable feedback.

  1. You’re welcome. The esplanade bridge and esplanade shot you took were excellent! Maybe you can grayscale em, print out and frame it. I’ll buy it if I’m living in an apt in New York, to remind me of Sg.
    As of now, I’d rather have a city shot of Paris.
