The Little India

This is a series of photograph I had taken over a period of a few months in Little India. It explore the dynamics and life in Little India. Little India has kept the old flavour. The people, their trades and habits has traces of the past, although some have already modernized and re-invent themselves to keep up. In Little India, we see a continuum of history. Their diversities are expressed outwardly with warm and friendliness. It was a journey, a humbling one, while documenting the streetscape and the people. People are what make the street interesting. They are featured prominently, architecture and the environment become secondary, helping to establish context and support the story told in each photograph.

Old Singapore – Clarke Quay and Fort Canning

It is interesting to look at the old photographs and start noticing changes being made to the landscape. It was investment well made when I got my negative scanned professionally and now I have the privilege to look at them and ponder, what are the changes in the photographs.
Join me in this fun game to explore Clarke Quay and also Fort Canning, some of the buildings that look old may be added later on, and we thought it was historical. Add your view to the Comment.

One Bodhi Tree

Documenting with Photography, writing, history and human spirit. Some want to conserve the graveyard, others wants to conserve their ancestors’ history, but here they want to conserve the Bodhi Tree, perhaps for the Genius Loci, or perhaps Lord Krishna and its humble temple anchored the fond memories of the boys who grew up in this village. For sometimes it is beyond reason that some things are done in this way. For me, I paint the moment for eternity. For the last milliseconds were gone when they passed us. Only the photographs can recall the stories again and again vividly.
