A Day of URBEX @ Mount Imbiah Battery


Recently, I spent a day of urban exploration at this decommissioned military fort, Mount Imbiah Battery in Sentosa. This defence post was built in the 1880s and by the First World War, Mount Imbiah Battery was emplaced with a 9.2 inch coast gun. It served as an "examination battery", to screen all merchant vessels before allowing them to enter the Singapore habour.

A Day of Urban Exploration

Part of an abandoned military outpost that was part of a British defence line that had been established well before WWII along the southern ridges of Singapore
It's been a long time since my last urban exploration except the recent short one at Fort Berlayar. Over the last weekend, I had the opportunity to explore 2 decommissioned military bases namely Point 270 @ Kent Ridge Park and Fort Serapong in Sentosa. With kind guidance, courtesy of a kind friend whom I shall not mention his name, for without him I wouldn't be able to visit or find these places.

Make the jump to see more photos and videos I made during the exploration.

Street Photo - Mode of Transportation (Panorama)

Mode of Transportation
It came as a rare sight where all types of transportation came to a halt altogether at a red light traffic junction. There are public bus, delivery truck, private luxury car, taxi and motorcycle. Guess I was lucky to be at the right place at the right time.

Minimalism - Mystic Sail

Mystic Sail
A sail boat sailed by in the early weekend morning near Coney Island. This minimalistic photo was captured on Apple iPhone 6+ using Slow Shutter Cam app and post-processed in Snapseed 2.0 for B&W conversion.

I have been using this app for 2 weeks now and I really find it an useful and easy to use app. Previously I wrote on my Night Photography blogsite on using this app for some colorful night photography. What's amazing about this app is that it's not restricted just for low light condition and night photography. It can be used on day time photography. For best results, preferably take photos under overcast weather, or in this photo shown above, on a hazy/foggy day.

I believe I will continue to use this app, more often so for more creative photography.

Street Photo of the Day - PSI 314

PSI 314
Yesterday I was visiting my sister's new home in Seng Kang. On my way home I saw this little boy at a LRT station platform waiting for the next transit. Air condition had gotten worst with PSI (Pollutant Standards Index) at 314, the second highest level since the last worst air pollution caused by forest fire in Indonesia in 2012.

Street Photo - Hard Rock Doggie

Hard Rock Doggie

This photograph of a dressed up dog certainly made my day. I was walking  around MBS (Marina Bay Sands) when I saw a cyclist riding with his dog. I noticed the dog was wearing a bandana and a pair of sunglasses. I quickly approached them and asked the man fi I can take pictures of his dog. He approved and I took a few shots on black & white film with my Nikon FM10. Next I took a few more with my Apple iPhone and offered to give an instant print but the dog owner politely rejected. And so they rode away. Here's a shot I took of the man and his stylish dog.



When I was about to take photographs of the dog, he was so shy that he crunched and shunned away from my camera. The owner tried to get him up but he was kind of reluctant. In the end I was still able to get one or two decent shots.
