2018-12-16   AIRPORT ART IN SINGAPORE CHANGI

By |2018-12-15T18:18:46+00:00December 16th, 2018|Singapore|

Even we were a bit late and were fastly going forward to the aperture gates; I stopped at that art installation. Those copper-metal drops changed direction in wavelike forms and positioned itself in new ways with every iteration. For the photo, I waited for the decisive moment. I intended to get as many drops as possible on the picture. Then I had to pack my camera back. My wife was a bit angry; she wouldn’t have waited any longer.

2018-10-18   GARDENS BY THE BAY NIGHT TOUR

By |2018-10-17T20:30:24+00:00October 17th, 2018|Singapore|

After doing my photo shots of the Gardens by the Bay on the observation deck, I went down to visit the area. At the entry, there is a visitor’s map to get on overview of the sections with the Supertree Grove or Flower Dome. The constructors and designers attached great value to details, on the photo you can see a simple route between attractions with a stylish roof and colorful flowers.

2018-10-03   INSIDE MARINA BAY SANDS

By |2018-10-03T19:20:44+00:00October 3rd, 2018|Singapore|

That’s THE photo hotspot in Singapore, Marina Bay Sands, and the surroundings. The magnificent hotel for shooting inside and outside, a bridge to catch Singapore streets and skyline, the rooftop bar,  the vista point for the Gardens by the Bay and nearby shopping centers with rivers and big rounded roofs inside. I recommend to plan an afternoon and the evening in this area and be at the right time at the lightning orchestra of the Gardens.

2018-08-08   SHOPPING CENTER IN SINGAPORE

By |2018-08-08T18:15:06+00:00August 7th, 2018|Singapore|

The shopping center has a water-canal inside, an architectural marvel with top-notch stores and excellent materials used for the interior accessories. I was standing on a bridge which connected to levels and placed my camera on the handrail to avoid camera shake. I can give you a tip, searching after a tripod replacement bears fruit often. Bars and pillars are perfect for this but are careful with concrete when placing a camera; it can scratch your camera ground.

2018-07-24   MARINA BAY SANDS FROM THE 6TH FLOOR

By |2018-07-24T20:59:50+00:00July 24th, 2018|Singapore|

I was on the way to the lightning show at the Gardens of the Bay as I captured that scene from this spectacular hotel. I fetched my camera and started to shoot before I made the way out. If you want to visit the garden-show, ask at the reception for the right direction, you can be lost very fast in that big area.

2018-07-20   FLOWERS IN THE FLOWER DOME SINGAPORE

By |2018-07-19T20:38:24+00:00July 20th, 2018|Singapore|

The flowers-wonder world in the Singapore Flower Dome. They have built flower-stations with vegetations from all time-zones and continents of the world. If you study each sign with the information from the different flowers and plants, you can stay there the whole day. I started a photo tour where I shot from the entrance to the exit all variations, angles, and colors.

2018-07-06   NIGHTLY STREET IN SINGAPORE

By |2018-07-06T17:48:03+00:00July 6th, 2018|Singapore|

I do this in every city. Shooting streets in the night from a bridge, where the cars are approaching, and a dark sky tints the scenery. The different lights form the cars, street lamps, and industrial buildings, that’s urbanity, the atmosphere for electro-pop sound. Then I think of the German electronic band Kraftwerk with their song “Metropolis.”

2018-07-01   STAIRWAY TO THE FIRST FLOOR

By |2018-07-01T09:09:27+00:00July 1st, 2018|Singapore|

In which castle or magnificent building are we? No castle :-), it’s the stairway to the first floor of the Apple Store in Singapore. It represents the artful thinking and the commitment to design and details at Apple.

2018-06-22   RAINFOREST IN SINGAPORE

By |2018-06-22T20:09:45+00:00June 22nd, 2018|Singapore|

The Cloud Forest near the Gardens at the Bay is an impressive building with a simulated rainforest-walk where a waterfall pours down over a high scarp. In this hall is sub-tropical climate and you have the feeling you are in a Jurassic-Park movie. Even your camera has to a acclimatize before you can start to shoot, lenses are full of dew after you enter this area with high humidity.

2018-04-05   MARINA BAY SANDS WITH BIG WHEEL

By |2018-04-04T20:17:48+00:00April 5th, 2018|Singapore|

Going over the pedestrian bridge to the “Gardens by the Bay” light-show I caught that night-shot of the hotel building with the Singapore Flyer. The whole area is a top location for an evening in Singapore.
