Retro Black and White City Landscape

Bum Boats along Singapore River

Black and White Singapore Landscape

This picture was not converted from a color photo. It was snapped as it is – in black and white.

When seeing historical places in black and white, a kind of nostalgia sets in. This was taken during high noon. I wouldn’t really recommend taking pictures during these timings. Light is rather harsh. The saving grace was the passing clouds that somehow diffuse and illuminate the scenery.

At this scene, the actual color of the river was a murky and muddy clay water. Not that attractive. Much better to photograph the water scenery at the Merlion Park. More color there – sort of greenish grey, just a tad improvement.

Will add more black and white pictures as time goes by. Plenty to go around.

Catch you on the next post. Have a great weekend!
