Singapore went through a Japanese occupation during the world war 2. The island has had an overwhelmingly Chinese-majority population which lent their brethren in mainland China a lot of money and support in their fight against Japan. So when Singapore finally fell to the Japanese, the revenge of the occupiers was brutal. Continue reading

A random gallery collection of various genres including still life, street photography and architecture. Nikon D610 was the camera used. Most images were shot with the Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G Micro, and one with the Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G. Have fun!

Seoul 2016: National Museum Of Contemporary Art – TV Tower

In which we take a peek in the National Museum of Contemporary Art within the Seoul Grand Park. I don’t normally make pictures of other people’s art work, but this must be a signature installation that people of the world hardly know about!

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I spent too little time in the Seoul Grand Park. But I identified this museum as a must-go place and was glad I made this decision. Sure contemporary art isn’t everyone’s cup of tea – I’ll be the first to admit that I really dislike most contemporary art produced in recent years. There was stuff that I just passed by with no interest. However, there was also stuff that I found interesting – such as this massive contraption. So do drop by if you ever visit the Seoul Grand Park! – WY

This is a “fun” experiment. I usually do not take pictures of other people’s art work and do not make things this saturated. However, I thought I will do this just once for experimental fun.

This area is dotted with art sculptures and graffiti. I guess it takes a geek to recognize that this contraption with two solar panels on top is made to look like a robot. 🙂 – WY

Phoro Album 2016 Week 16: Randomness

Well I’ve got my new PC and finally settled into my new home. I have two weeks of intensive travel ahead of me though, so expect this blog to fall somewhat silent again. The bad news is, half of that travel is work-related so expect no images to come out of that. The good news is, the other half is leisure-related, so maybe I can get some good pictures out of that!

Some images before I leave: Of people walking under the hot sun with a phone, a look at a hotel, and some Vietnamese vermicelli.
