First, apologies for the sporadic posting this year. Been splitting my attention between cycling and learning more about photography. Let’s get back to posting.
Come with me on a journey to Balestier Road. Thanks to Allan Lee from Singapore Shutter Journey Photography Group for organising all the photo trips around Singapore. It has been fun and I learn a lot.
Balestier Road in Singapore is a mixture of old historical buildings, condos, private houses, commercial shops and buildings and a rich heritage trail. After meeting at Shaw House, off we went and started shooting.
The first thing I noticed – so many shops selling lights.
Sale signboards were everywhere. I had always been fascinated by window display. It takes skills, imagination and creativity for window display which acts like a lure to draw people inside shopping.
Uncle and perhaps his son volunteered to pose in front of their shop. Thanks, guys!
Here is an attempt for a leading line composition. Let’s have dinner?
Old shophouses with beautiful motifs and designs stand in contrast with new shopping mall and condos.
Bicycles against the railing. On the opposite side, two tyres were already gone from that old bicycle. Another one bite the dust.
I was going to take more pictures but there was a guy staring. Maybe one of the bike was his and he could be wondering if I had bad intentions. Ehh, better move on and avoid trouble.
A colorful collage of the sights around Balestier.
I prefer the black and white versions. Not familiar with Balestier Road so just soak in the sights as I walk along. If ever there is a next time, I will focus more on the cultural and historical aspect here.
So till next time, thank you for reading. For those celebrating, Have a Merry Christmas!
