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 !

ShootUrTweeple ! A Fun Photography Walkabout Event !

With the growth and expansion of social media networking such as Twitter, the interaction between people, friends and business partners took on a new playing arena, increasing networking and exchanges between them. Using Twitter, I got to know a lot more photographers, bloggers and micro-bloggers (Twitter), attended different events that brought different people from different or common interests together.

What  is ShootUrTweeple ? Organised by Kevin,” … of this tweetup, photography, fun and getting to walk through places where in our daily lives we would otherwise not normally tread…” For me, I totally agree with his view and it gave everyone of us here in Singapore, locals and tourists alike, how often have we walked past or rushed past a street, road to get from Point A to B or from office to shopping or office to home ? Are we missing the little things around us that is rich in history and culture ?

We started off, meeting at Farrer Park MRT Station, meeting many new photographers, bloggers and micro-bloggers for the first time and although I didn’t manage to chat with all, hope to catch up you folks in other tweetup events ! The drizzle delayed our journey into Little India and we being photographers started to entertain and ShootUrTweeple !

The route was pretty interesting, even though I walked around Little India before, visiting one of the Hindu temple around the area for my ex-colleague’s Hindu Wedding and also my previous office being near there too, I had my walkabout experiences around in the area. Nevertheless, how often I walked slowly, enjoyed the atmosphere and culture, looked the different shophouses of different designs, colours and conditions ? They do gave us many different photography opportunities !

Walking, taking photographs, lots of fun and sharing, making new friends. Shot only with my 50mm f1.8, something that I don’t usually do ! A different challenge yet it was very fun for me and got used to it in quick time ! After walking around in different routes, our end point is Zsofi Tapas Bar at 68 Dunlop Street for beers and pizzas. A great place to rest, great ambience, delicious pizzas, friendly staff ! Nice place to chill out for all of the ShootUrTweeple people ! With beers and pizzas, chatting and relaxing !! If not for me having to rush off to the Airport picking up my parents, I would definitely be staying longer !

Do check out more photos here on Flickr ! I would also be adding more fellow ShootUrTweeple blog posts here too !
