Joanne & David

Part of my last job was to help oversee the photo shoots for our clients which gave me the opportunities to shoot behind-the-scenes at those sessions. This time, it was with Joanne Peh and Allan Ng was the photographer.

Here we see celebrity hair stylist David Gan attending to Joanne.

mini Cactus

Taken at the 2006 Garden Festival held at the Suntec City. More photos here in Flickr.

National Day 2006 Fireworks

I love fireworks. Every year, there are a few opportunities to photograph them – New Year’s Eve, National Day and the Singapore Fireworks’ Festival. These few photos are from the 2006 National Day Parade Fireworks taken from the area along just along Pebble Beach near Tanjung Rhu.

Flying free

One of my all-time favourite photo of a Vertical Catwalk performer flying through the air at the Esprit fashion show held at the Raffles City facade.

Names.

One of four photos taken at the Kranji War Memorial. The War Memorial was dedicated to the men and women who died defending Singapore during the Second War World.

The 12 walls forming the Kranji War Memorial are inscribed with names of Allied servicemen whose bodies were never found. Standing tall beyond that is the Cross of Sacrifice.

A Soldier of the War

One of four photos taken at the Kranji War Memorial. The War Memorial was dedicated to the men and women who died defending Singapore during the Second War World.

These are just three of over 850 nameless soldiers, among the 4,458 who were buried at the Kranji War Cemetery.

Kranji War Memorial entrance

Their Name Liveth For Evermore

Their Name Liveth For Evermore – the words that spans across the entrance leading to the Kranji War Memorial, overlooking the Cross of Sacrifice.

Camera portrait

Took this while waiting for the start of the National Day Parade in 2004 at Kallang.

Where we going Papa?

Clifford Pier used to be where people take bumboats out to nearby islands or to ships awaiting offshore. The place has seen been closed down since 2007 and is undergoing major redevelopment with new office blocks and condominiums popping out around it.

Reaching out

Captured this on a late evening at the Bugis Junction water fountain.

A glimpse of Heaven?

That’s the top of the St Andrew’s Cathedral against some pretty cloud formation, given a more dramatic feel with Photoshop.

Faded stars

Little India is a treasure trove of things to shoot. From people, to places, to interesting objects. Little India is also a haven for all things Bollywood, from collection of DVDs, to the latest soundtracks. I happen to find these faded posters at some back corners and loves how it is sort of symbolised the short lifespan of Bollywood stars. Added a touch of Holga effect while trying out the new Nik Silver Efex Pro.

Anderson Bridge

I love black and white. This shot of Anderson Bridge, which has spanned across Singapore River since 1910, is one of my all time favourite. At evening time, the shadows of the metal grille slowly creeping across the bridge makes a great picture with the white of the bridge.

Just look out for traffic if you want to attempt this shot.

Door Gods

Here are the Door Gods standing guard over the entrance to the Thian Hock Keng Temple along Telok Kurau Street. I love the intricate details put into the something as simple as the entrance.

Electrico Violet Rock

Not exactly the perfect shot, I love how the violet spot casts a halo around Electrico’s Desmond Goh.

Yellow windows

Chinatown still has the best collection of old colonial shop houses although redevelopment and weird paint jobs meant having an eclectic mixed of new and old buildings among the business district.

Bench

This was my attempt in re-creating an infra-red version of the photo – in this case, a bench in front of a tree in the Botanic Garden.

Pink flower

Another flower which I can’t name.

Yellow flower

I wish I had taken down the name of this plant/flower when I shot this in the Botanic Garden. Do you know what this is?
