the Singapore project | Singapore's Marina Bay and More

November 17, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Evening photography is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, especially in Singapore where the day heat and night time lights just push you to want to be out later in the day.   An evening photo session of the renowned light show of Marina Bay was exactly what I had in mind this night.

 

I ventured out to Marina Bay just over a month ago to photograph the typical sights and attractions - the Merlion, the Marina Bay Sands skyline, the Singapore Flyer.    I walked the full view of the Marina Bay taking the customary photographs, but what I was doing lacked inspiration.   It seemed as though I was just photographing what others had photographed hundreds of times before.  I had no special vantage point, no secret angle.   It was just me snapping photographs.   The was nothing special about it.   I wasn't creating art I was just taking pictures of it.   Now I still believe there are some good photographs, but it wasn't quite the vision I was after.   

 

As I took my eyes off the main attractions and wandered a bit off the beaten path, I began to notice some hidden treasures as well as some interesting people that gave me much more of the artistic compositions I was looking for.   Then I guess that was exactly my goal of my Singapore project photo walks, not just to photograph the obvious but to find the hidden beauty in Singapore.   From the concrete to the human, here is the beauty I found in the Marina Bay this evening in October....
