The Leica User Group Singapore (LUGS) organized an outing last week (7 April 2008) to the Kebun Baru Birdsinging Club.
The Hassie came to the party loaded with a roll of Cinestill 50D. Here is the result. The Kebun Baru Birdsinging Club is place in Amg Mo Kio, central Singapore, where bird lovers have their pets compete. In both singing and look competition.
It is a beutiful places with both shadow areas with low hanging bird cages but also a wide open space with high poles were cages are hoisted by a pulley system.
(The above rectangular shot is due to an issue with the Hassie back frame spacing)
On competition days judges are walking between the birds and give notes.
I joined Bernard Goh’s Singapore Photo Walk outing of March with my son.
Rochor Centre is group of buildings built by the Housing and Development Board of Singapore. It was built and completed in 1977 and consists of 4 blocks painted in vivid colors yellow, green, red and blue.
This is an iconic building in the east side on Singapore center that can be seen by tourists going to Arab Street or Little India.
The buildings comprise habitations, shops and hawkers ( food stalls). On the ground floor you still can find some religious artefacts.
The center has started closing as later this year it will be torn down to give way to a motorway joining the north to the south of the island. A lot of the shops have already relocated, but some are still open. The habitations seems to still be occupied if I can judge by the drying laundry.
The void desk is a classical feature of the HDB blocks, an open area for inhabitants to congregate and do activities.

My account reached one hundred thousand (100000) views on Flickr this week, probably nothing to be too proud about, surely a big part of it have not even been seen. But yet, some have, so thank you flickr.
“Site Under Construction”, at Marina Bay Financial Center (MBF) in Singapore.
On the way to my new office MBF Tower 2, the construction continues. Tower 3, maybe 4 ? I don’t know – don’t care really. But nice shot opportunities.
Camera:Nikon D700 Lens:Tamron 28mmf2.5 Adaptall 2 (aka the infamous) Processing:LR3+PS Elements 4.0
Here comes Chinese New Year, the town is decorated, Chinatown streets are buzzing.
A quick Friday evening stroll with the D700 and the old Tamron 28mm F2.5 manual focus lens. I could not resist to shoot the pink lights in the fake trees along south bridge road. Here comes my Chinese new year bokeh.
Incidentally I have upgraded to Lightroom 3.3 this week because it support more lenses for the correction option; I was looking for the Nikkor 24mm F2.8D.
