Vintage Lorry + Behind the Wheels

A vintage lorry (defunct) displayed outside the wax museum, Madame Tussauds in Sentosa. I took the opportunity during a full moon night to make this 267-seconds photo. Yellow light on the head lights, violet on the interior, warm white on license plate, lorry body, wheels and overhead banners. Lastly behind the lorry I spread cool white light with tinted blue color cast under the wheels.

Another photo made just under a minute, on the steering wheel and color-splashed with violet and green lights.

Stargazing Merlion

Had a wonderful night making photographs in Sentosa last night and the weather was awesomely good in the day and very cooling at night with the full moon hanging high overhead, illuminating the beautiful night sky.

The legendary Merlion is a half lion half fish guardian of prosperity which personifies Singapore’s history as a port city. Standing at 37 meters tall, the lion depicts the folklore of Prince Sang Nila Utama’s rediscovery of lion (singa) and City (pura) while the fish tail symbolises ancient fishing village of Temasek, meaning “sea” in Javanese. Today, the majestic Merlion is a Singapore icon attracting visitors from all around the world.

This star trails photo is made up of thirty 1-minute long exposures and all were stacked in Photoshop using Dr. Russell Brown's Stack-a-matic.

Night Photography on a Rainy Night

Mount Imbiah Battery Command Post
It's December 2015 and it seems Monsoon season has arrived here in Singapore with many raining for the past 2 weeks. Big downpours and thunderings. Last night I was in Sentosa with 2 other friends who joined me at Mount Imbiah Battery for a night photography session. It turned out to be a disappointing wet night. The above photo is one of 2 proper night photos we made before it started to rain. It stopped and we decided to carry on, as we proceed to the gun emplacement area to make this night photo – experimenting with light-drawing effect.

Battery Gun Emplacement
I'm not really into light-drawings and no harm doing it for fun sake. The twirling green light trail was created by my friend with a green color light stick. Pinkish-violet cellophane paper was used to light-paint the whole emplacement. Immediately after this is made, it started to rain again. We took shelter and waited but the rain got bigger.

While waiting for the rain to stop, we did some interesting light-drawings and here's one of the best ones after a few attempts.

As the rain begun to drizzle, we packed up and left the place quickly. Guess we have to come back on another date during the dry season for more night photographs.
