Shooturtweeple Tanjong Pagar Edition 2nd Oct 2010

Shooturtweeple 6th Edition, happened on 2nd October 2010, led and organised by Kevin and Callan, a photography walkabout Tanjong Pagar edition, for the love of photography, making new friends/tweeples and shooting your fellow photographers/tweeples thus the name ShootUrTweeple.

It was great to be with this group again, my 2nd time with them. We started off frm Outram Park MRT Station, walked towards Spottiswode Park via Kampung Bahru Road, hiking through heritage shophouses with many different facades, history and colours. While enjoying and taking photographs of rich heritage and history, we did not forget capturing our fellow tweeples/photographers in action too !

Walking through Spottiswode Park estate, we reached Tanjong Pagar Railway Station and had a longer rest there for a drinks break and rest break. While waiting, resting, taking photographs of the railway station, more tweeples/photographers joined us before gathering again to head up towards Pinnacle Duxton, Singapore’s newest public housing development, 50 stories high. The group went up to the 50th floor Sky Park while I decided to stay on the ground level for rest and taking other photographs of Pinnacle Duxton since I went up 50th floor Sky Park twice already !

Thereafter, we continued towards Tanjong Pagar Plaza, another old heritage area of Singapore’s public housing development, passing by Yan Kit Swimming Pool (not in use anymore) and having an evening view of the old and new Singapore’s public housing developments. It was beautiful to see before my eyes, the history, development and growth of Singapore through the growth and development of our public housing !

Last but not least, it’s chill out time with dinner and beer, chatting, relaxing, networking, poking fun at people 🙂 If you are in Singapore and would like to join, check out the Shooturtweeple on Facebook ! It was nice knowing more tweeples/photographers and although I wasn’t able to have a chat with all my new friends, hope I would be able to do so in the next shooturtweeple ! Hope you all enjoy shooturtweeple and check out the pics here !

View from 24th Floor

One of Singapore’s newest landmarks, known as the Pinnacle @ Duxton, the views taken from the 24th Floor, using my iPhone 3G moreLomo application.

In time to come, I would go up there again to the 50th Floor and spend more time there to do sunset photography, aerial and landscape photography !

The word HDB, also known as Housing Development Board, is acronym that is closely related to the history, heart and growth of Singapore from her independence in 1965 till today. Many changes to the landscape of Singapore, from 1 bedroom to 2 bedroom public housing in the early days to the modern high rise public housing consisting of 50 levels that are wonderfully designed.

The Pinnacle@Duxton is the latest addition to the public housing estates in Singapore, next to the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District, with a skybridge on the 50th floor that spans an awesome landscape view of the Singapore Harbour, Central Business District, Chinatown and Western part of Singapore. Today was our maiden visit to the Pinnacle@Duxton, where our Cousin Joel had an apartment there and Cousin Brandon & myself arranged a time to drop by and visit !

When we were up there, the views were absolutely beautiful and magnificent, no wonder they received such good publicity and many photographers wanted to visit the skybridge too ! The blocks span over different views of Singapore and it’s a wonderful location for sunset photography ! The weather today wasn’t that good, there were lots of dark clouds engulfing the sky and there wasn’t much of a sunset. Nevertheless, three of us cousins had fun walking, enjoying and taking photographs 🙂

We later visited Cousin Joel’s apartment too and his unit had a clear view of the Chinatown ! Cousin Brandon & myself were sharing with Cousin Joel on the eateries around Pinnacle@Duxton and we promised to come back with a food adventure around his area along with another photography adventure !

Do check out the Pinnacle@Duxton website on the rules and regulations pertaining to Skybridge visit for visitors and residents. Hope you folks enjoy the photographs taken on a cloudy day in Singapore ! A 50th Floor Bird’s Eye View from Pinnacle@Duxton Skybridge !
