This Used To Be My Playground serial – Aeroplane playground (2017) + one more

This is another one of many modern newly designed playground equipments which I came across during my research on the internet. In mid-August I came across the Tank playground equipment located in the west region of Singapore, and in late November, I found this one which is located in the north region. It was great fun making photographs of these two. Make the jump to view my new work.

Not Quite Night series #51 – Clive Street

This was my first attempt on Not Quite Night with a Nikon D70s on Tamron 17-35mm. Compared to the early NQN photos which were made with Apple iPhone 6 Plus, image quality is definitely a whole lot better, even when shot on hand-held.

This photo could not be made possible during the nautical twilight period due to the heavy traffic flow of vehicles, pedestrians and eating house customers, as well as vehicles parked along the road side. Hence, I made an effort to wake up early and walked all the way from my home to Clive Street in Little India. Yes I literally walked about 3.5km. Upon arrival, I recce around the vicinity to find the best vantage spot and here it is, where I stationed myself and waited for the first light to make this shot on a Sunday dawn.

Well, I did make some shots with my iPhone 6 Plus and here are 2 results in different aspect ratio.

In a blog I posted last November, in which I wrote about my new compact point-n-shoot camera, RICOH GR II, and since then I have made some good NQN photos which of course I will be posting them one by one here on a weekly basis.
