    thanks so much Mary Anne
    The ArtScience Museum is normally a plain white

    it looked particularly interesting during the iLight festival, so I braved the huge crowds and found myself a spot to both watch the show and try to capture something!



    ================


    24. Another photo from iLight 2014


    Basically a kind of net strung across the football field in an artistic manner, then blasted with specific coloured light. Quite an interesting display.
    The CBD in the background just for some perspective...

    thanks Mary Anne!

    The net looked really interesting.
    Here's another from much closer (I had to sneak up to this one in the dark, coz the area was barricaded off for 'maintenance'), using a 14mm Samyang for that exaggerated perspective.

    thanks Mary Anne!

    With our National Day coming up (on August 9), there have been rehearsals every Saturday evening since mid-June. They even let off some fireworks, which makes for a spectacular sight for everyone out for a night in the town.

    26. here's one from Elgin Bridge across the Singapore River, with our Parliament House on the left.



    27. further down the road is St Andrews Cathedral, which looks pretty amazing at night.

    Was lucky enough to get tickets to attend the National Day Parade on August 9th.
    Treated to a spectacular show with song and dance, as well as a display of some military hardware. Not forgetting the favourite fireworks at the end, of course!

    Hope you enjoyed your short work stint in Singapore.
    As residents here, we tend to take a lot of aspects such as law & order, and the sense of security for granted. That's because we grew up within this environment and it has become the norm.

    the 'african-looking' blokes you are referring to, I would presume they are our Bangladeshi foreign workers, who are employed mainly in the construction and general contracting industries. Unfortunately they are ferried around on the rear sections of our pick-up trucks (cheap version of the Aussie Ute) without much concern about their safety. I wish they were treated a little better by their employers.





    ====================



    28. Went for a walk-about in Bishan Park one evening, and realized they had completed the major renovation to the park area.
    The goal was to make the park more natural-looking, and make the central stormwater canal an integral part of the park, allowing the public to get close to the water.

    They constructed a few bridges and some F&B outlets (including McDonalds) around the park



    Some additional information on Bishan Park's transformation can be found HERE

    29. Another angle of Clarke Quay at dawn on a Saturday, looking far more tranquil than several hours prior, when the place was absolutely packed with party-goers.



    * really fascinated by this 'duality' in Singapore. It seems like 2 different cities: 1 for the folks who stay up late into the night, and another for the folks who go to bed early and start their day at the break of dawn.

    33. Marina Bay (again)
    Happened to catch a sunrise where the Merlion was switched off and not spewing water, hence lucky to get the perfectly still water surface.

    haven't added to this thread in quite a while.
    Here's another one of my favourite place, the Marina Bay



    Hard to believe this was all water, about 15 years ago...

    Brilliant photos of Singapore. I enjoy all of your photos.

    I admit when I was there, after first day or two, I ended up window shopping from one mall to another, and left my camera at accommodation.
