Apple Green


Taken on a recent trip to KL. Stayed indoors most of the time due to the heavy haze.

I've reworked the pic, because the background may be a bit overpowering. I'm not sure this new version is an improvement though. Let me know if you have any preference.

Reactor Core

Reactor Core

The new SMU campus at Bras Basah Road. Still feels empty and new.

This part of the campus reminds of the set on the Death Star in Star Wars, with Ben Kenobi about to step from behind a pillar to confront Darth Vader.

Who Watches the Watchmen?

Who Watches the Watchmen?

Another shot at the National Library at Victoria Street. Tried multiple shots from different angles, including a few low-angle shots from lying on the floor. People must have thought I was nuts. Strangely enough, the first shot I took somehow seemed to be the one that worked best.

There is an optical illusion somewhere in this pic, or rather, it's all over the pic.

I've discovered that apart from the brick wall in the basement, there is also another remnant of the old national library that has been incorporated into the new building. It was a really cool moment when I recognised what it was. This must be what it feels like to be an archeologist when they discover ancient ruins. I'll post a pic of it if I can get a decent shot. In the meantime here are few of other shots of the library.

Art Deco

This building next to the Istana (Palace) in Singapore. The President's neighbour. The building is in the Art Deco style I think.

Arrangement along a wall. The engineer or architect who designed this was having fun I think ;)

Waiting for the Bride


A re-crop of this picture:

Waiting for the Bride

I thought that the composition didn't quite work here. I was trying too hard for a triangular composition when the elements didn't quite harmonise. Hopefully, today's crop is an improvement.

Here's another alternative crop:

Waiting for the Bride II

I think the lesson here is to let the picture sit a while before I post it :)
