Singapore - A Brief Visit

We decided to get away for a few days so we made a trip up to Singapore. Its only a 5 hour flight from Perth in Western Australia where we live. My wife and I had last been to Singapore over 20 years ago, so we were eager to see how it had changed and how we had changed.

 Shopping was no longer on the agenda we were now more interested in the surroundings the food and of course for me the chance to photograph a new location.

One of the must see items on our list were the Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay, so we timed our visit for the evening when the lights would be turned on. I found if I laid down on my back and using a fish-eye lens, I captured some interesting compositions looking up at the trees.

 (Tip) Don’t get run over by the electric ice-cream truck, you can’t hear it coming and the driver is not on the look-out for photographers laying on the ground.
