Joined my army kakis for a photo walk around Chinatown this morning. We had a great time shooting together, not using our rifles and artillery guns this morning but with our cameras! #1 No photography! Yeah right……..
#2 RedRed is a strong colour in composing pictures. Upon seeing this traditional red double happiness Chinese lattern, I use my zoom lens to compress the scene and to have a red background for the lattern.
#3 Friendly face in the crowdMy favourite street portrait in this set.
#4 Reflections reflectionsPhotographers have this weird past time of squatting next to water puddles. This picture explains why we were squatting in public earlier… U never know what u r going to get.
#5 Well wishing lionsPlaying with lines/patterns and colours here. For my non-Chinese friends, the well wishes hanging from the lions' mouth means ‘beckoning wealth ushering gold’…. Something like tat…
#6 Pink fire in ChinatownThis flower struck me as its shape is likened to flames of a fire. Using a long focal length and large aperture to blur out the messy background and focus only on the pink flames.. I mean flower.
#7 Napping in publicIf my encik see this… This man would be doing his jumping jacks! Sometimes u wonder does these old folks have a place to rest.
#8 Smart looking ah chekIf there is a Mr. Chinatown competition among the elderly in Chinatown, I think this Ah Chek (old uncle) would have given many a run for their money!
#9 Colours in ChinatownI like to take pictures of colourful windmill. These colourful things are simply eye catching.
#10 Checking out the newsThe red background provides a great colour to shoot this scene with. Wonder does he mind me reading his papers together…
#11 Rows and rows of colourful lanternsIt's really a sight to behold! The temple staff are a hardworking lot! That's alot of lanterns to hang.
#12 Framing everything inWe were up in the hdb flats taking pictures of the temple and the cityscape. Rather then keeping the cityscape pics, I find this picture much more interesting to look at.
#13 Snarling catThis little fella greeted us before we attacked our chow at the end of our walk. Boy…it does not look friendly… good thing its small.

That is a great portrait in #3, is that the 70-200 that made that wonderful bokeh in that shot? #10 is great for the red color and the way the guy is sitting, very interesting. #11 is a wonderful display of lines shapes and color, nicely done:)
I like how you shoot and show us the diversity of daily life. Great post again.
