Glimpses of Singapore

A water fountain at Marina Center. I tried to frame it in such a way, that the lines would lead the viewer to the center of the photograph, wasn't quite successful though.

Singapore's Skyline with the Merlion at the bottom center.
There are innumerable water fountains in Singapore and the place provides ample opportunities to photograph reflections. Just remember to use the smallest available aperture (biggest f value).
The Cavenagh Bridge, named after Singapore's last Governor and Constructed in 1868; the bridge still boasts of its original splendour. Right next to the bridge is the bronze statue shown below.

This was my favorite of all the innumerable statues that line Singapore. Originally called the "First Generation" it shows 5 Bronze boys jumping into the Singapore waterway.

The Merlion is Singapore's most famous icon. It was designed by Fraser Brunner for the Singapore Tourism Board in 1964 and was used as its logo till 1997. The lion head and fish body of the creature recalls the story of the legendary Sang Nila Utama, who saw a lion while hunting on an island, en route to Malacca. The island eventually became the sea port of Temasek, which later led to the development of the beautiful Singapore.


Esplanade theater on the Bay, is designed to represent the Durian fruit (Fruit similar to Jack fruit). The place is a center of arts, dramas and Operas.
The city of Singapore is a wonderland for all those interested in urban or architectural photography.
