A roll with the Nikon F – part 2 : around town

Not much talk today, just 3 more pictures of the first Nikon F roll of the year. As usual I spend some time weekly around the popular yet central area between Lavender MRT and Serangoon road (Little India).

Below one of the stall  in the ground floor of the public housing building opposite lavender MRT.

Just before Serangoon road, on Marne street s small Chinese temple lies in a patch of greenery that will soon be used for more constructions. I do not know his name and but two of the horse statues were guarding the entrance (closed). These are something temples and shrines, I must find someone to explain me one day.

Another day, another place. Hong Lim Complex is a public housing building at the border between  the CDB (Central Business District) and Chinatown. These are a lot of shops selling food, Chinese medicine items, and so on. I liked the scale they use in that one.

Ok, this week a small break from the Nepal pictures; the Kallang Airport (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kallang_Airport), which was Singapore airport from 1937 to 1995, was opened to the public this year as part on the Singapore Biennale. Just got the film back from the shop and here are some pictures.

For these picture I brought my Manfrotto tripod; the F mirror shake is generally so bad that I feel these pictures really got a benetif from using a tripod for once.

Instead of the original 50mmF1.4 S I used my “new” 50mmF1.4AIS.

Also during this time I have been de-stocking some stuff: my Lowepro Slingshot bag is gone, it was too small , my gear too heavy (and the strap does not feel comfortable with my beerbelly ;)), the excellent Nikkor 24mm F2.8 is gone today as well, I don’t really use it any more since I bought the 17-35F2.8, fair-well my friends. Don’t worry, I am not just making void; mostly making room for a new acquisition very soon.
