Shadow details in the Singapore cruise terminal …

Shadow details at the Singapore cruise terminal

Inside this building the long shadows dominated the walls,  I had the feeling that I was actually in something other than a building. It has a nautical feel because of the the colours and some of the angles which caused these wonderful long shadows. I didn’t photograph any broad interior shots as there were quite a few people and few officials milling around, one has to be a bit careful these days. Singapore has caught some of the anti photographer rashness that has reared its unfounded nonsense in Australia and most certainly in the UK. I was approached by the a plain clothes person in an MRT station for snapping which is a new occurrence. Its quite sad really, but another side of me has to laugh because all of this security silliness pertaining to photography was taken seriously after it was portrayed in a Hollywood B movie, totally bazaar…

Cruise Terminal …

Cruise terminal in Singapore

This is another Singaporean building that has an out of the ordinary form. Its a cruise terminal where the cruise ships dock and set their passengers free for a few hour or a few days to visit the Merlion city state. Again the building has an Asian look about it. Asian architects and or western architects working in Singapore started breaking away from an international style about twenty odd years ago.first it was small details on doors, windows and gables now whole buildings have a distinct and in this case a unique visual appearance. Below is an elevation view taken from a high rise a few kilometres away. There is a cruise ship docked in the berth behind the building. The design of the building is such that at first one has to look closely to see where the building ends and the ship begins!  HDR image shot with a 75-300mm Olympus lens mounted on and OMD.
