Singapore 2016: Week 48 Street Photography

I have been super-busy lately, so falling slow on taking pictures. My expectations of the pictures I take are also getting higher, so QC is also getting somewhat tighter. 😛 Without further ado, let us take a look at people among geometry, people in swimming pools and people among cosplayers and sexy pillow cases. 😀

Ah… anime conventions with their crazy and fun merchandise and cosplayers. Always something to delight in. Feeling lonely? Get yourself a bolster pillow case with decorated with the anime girl of your choice. Nights are so much warmer with your arms and legs entwined around the girl of your dreams. 😛 – WY

To be exact, the exit to the Seoul Grand Park. This is a nice family theme park with a lot of different attractions – its more than a simple park with rides. There is a little zoo, camping grounds, a few museums, and heaven knows what else.

We only managed to drop by for a few hours, and that certainly was not enough! To add insult to injury, the weather was cloudy and dreary, so I did not have any good images from here. 😡

It is a highly recommended destination, as there are things to occupy adults as well as children. Remember to schedule a full day to visit! – WY

People Among Geometry: 2016 Day 169

This was taken from the lock museum in Seoul. It is interesting, but probably a little eerie to the fairer gender. Not too many images here, as I am not fond of making images of art and museum exhibits.

There appears to be a strong push for the arts in South Korea. Not the “same old tired traditional tourist hook stuff” mind you, but a genuine push for contemporary and modern art creations. This level of regard for art is quite unique for an Asian country. If you are wondering, those are actually exhaust pipes for either a subway or building.

We now end this short 3-day exhibition of black-and-white in Myengdong. Something different next post – WY

3 Days Of Black-And-White In Myeongdong (2)

In day 2 of this short series, we continue to look at street photography images rendered in black-and-white in colourful Myeongdong.

One thing I realized is that geographical climate does indeed has an effect on the appearance of light and photography opportunities. I hardly get this kind of nice light in Singapore, which is hot, humid and often cloudy. The high concentration of water vapour in Singapore probably weakens the appearance of light somewhat. In addition, the cool temperature of places such as Seoul ensures that people are actually willing to walk in the light! This is in stark opposition to warm tropical countries where everyone is scrambling to get out of the sunlight.

Day 3 coming up – WY
