Took the camera out for another spin halfway around the world again! This time, I visited Singapore with a stopover in Hong Kong.
A few quick notes:
I forgot to reset my camera settings from food photography. I didn’t realize this until I made it to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which would explain the vividness in color in some of my earlier shots.
Singapore is hot. I didn’t fully realize how close it was to the equator until I started sweating profusely and started rethinking my philosophy on walking everywhere. However, the food centers…not air conditioned at all, but strangely enough, I was comfortable in there. Maybe it was due to being so focused on the food.
In Hong Kong, I actually nixed my trusty Nikon and went old school with a film camera. I definitely slowed down a bit and really started thinking more about my shots. A good exercise, which hopefully produces a few good prints. I had class on the Thursday I came back and was able to make a contact sheet. Looks promising!
Other than that, below are a selection of my absolute favorites (as per my 3am jet lagged self). It was really hard to whittle it down from the hundreds of photos I took to the 97 I put in the Flickr album. It was even harder to narrow that down to the 20 I posted here. So, I highly recommend a visit the album in Flickr for all the great photos (including the food) that made the initial cut.
Till we travel again Gillbert….
