Photography Walkabout – Tanjong Pagar Railway Station & Spottiswode Park

Photography Walkabout, something that I always do regularly, visiting destinations and places all around Singapore. This time, I went with Sue and Amanda, exploring Tanjong Pagar Railway Station and Spottiswode Park area. The Tanjong Pagar Railway Station recently came into limelight and we decided to visit it for a photography walkabout, for more history and recent changes, check out this link.

Had breakfast at Seah Im Hawker Centre before proceeding to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, it’s a historical landmark and building. Walked around looking inside the hall with its high ceiling, the railway tracks, its eateries, being a “local expert” since my alumni mata, Gan Eng Seng School used to be at Raeburn Park, that is very near to the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station (the former school building is beside the railway tracks and depot), I was able to bring Sue and Amanda around the area, known as Spottiswode Park Estate, going up to the top floor, 25th storey of 2 different blocks and enjoying the city, harbour and railway views.

I hoped that Sue and Amanda would not be too bored with my secondary school stories and tales, being nostalgic and relieving back the good old schooling days of fun! Although we didn’t take a lot of photos of the trains or railway station, we took photos of nature, sceneries and wildlife . The straight road connecting Raeburn Park and Spottiswode Park road, tall trees stood proudly on both sides of the road, giving us Korean Drama inspiration pics (Winter Sonata). Check out my other photos from my Photography Walkabout here on Flickr !

Moving forward, I still had a few more photography walkabout routes that I had already planned to conduct, lead and share with my fellow photography friends. With my photography walkabout routes, I hope to offer interesting exploration routes that is off the tourist track, for both locals and tourists alike to enjoy ! Come walk with me !
