Haji Lane.

places + travel

It’s been a while since I unleashed myself into the wilderness of Singapore for the sole purpose of photography. I ended up in Hipster Paradise (also tourist paradise), Haji Lane.

This neighbourhood is all about the cafes and quaint little boutiques. Unfortunately though, on this particular occasion, I did not have a cuppa nor did I purchase anything. I did nose around a shop or two though.

The crowd this afternoon seemed fairly tame for a public holiday. Not that I would know what the usual would be like on weekends. It’s only the second time I’ve been there.

Exploring the city really reminded me how much I miss taking street photos. And how much I’ve been under-utilising the GR.

I digress for a moment… I was almost tempted to sell it off for a Canon G7x – I wanted the better video capabilities on the Canon.

There is no way I can justify getting rid of the beauty that is the GR.

One can only hope that a firmware update introduces better video quality. Considering the APS-C sensor and the lens… I don’t think hardware is a limitation, honestly.

Cascais.

Even now, I still can’t believe it took me this long to discover the glorious beaches along the coast of Portugal not far from Lisbon. Where have I been??? And then there is the gorgeous quaint little town of Cascais that has somehow stolen my heart. I’m a beach lover...

Alfama, a quirky haven with great views.

It's been a while since I've explored new parts of Portugal but a few Mondays ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Alfama district in Lisbon. Alfama is one of the oldest areas in Lisbon that spreads out from the Sao Jorge's castle on the...

How I like to travel.

Exploring and taking photographs are some of the things that I enjoy doing. There’s something incredibly relaxing about being in a new space, in the middle of new culture and taking in the sights slowly. If you ask ten people on the street on...
