In which I continue to go through my archives and pick out what I feel are worthy entries for my street photography gallery collection. Enjoy!
It’s about time I start updating my gallery of street photography images. Digging through my archives, it is interesting to see how my shooting style has changed over the years. I also realize that my own opinions about what makes a street photography image good has also changed over the years as I gained more exposure and experience. Some images which I thought were unique and gained a lot of “likes” now look cliché and boring to me.

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!

A worker clambers on to continue work on a temporary makeshift jetty in the middle of the Singapore River under the hot tropical sun. Most construction workers in Singapore are foreigners who work in physical labour-intensive, blue-collar work. Somewhat ironically, other foreigner mill about opposite him as tourists. Some of them actually come from the same country he does – as large countries inevitably experience a significant income divide among different states and provinces.
