Urban Landscape In Whampoa

Slanted Tree
I have been staying in Whampoa Drive for most of my life and it's a pretty small housing estate area with a small bus interchange terminal, a not-so-active Community Center, two hawker centers (one opens in the day and the other in the night where a number of food stalls selling good food) and a wet market, where all are just a couple of blocks away from my place.

If one looks closely and observe well, one can discover a number of interesting things in this small neighborhood. Well, in my case, I noticed this small little slanted tree, shown above, during my bus trip from Toa Payoh towards the bus-stop where I would alight. And I thought to myself "how come I've never seen this tree before?". So this morning with warm morning sunlight shining upon this open field where the tree is rooted right next to St. Michael bus interchange terminal. I walked there and made a few shots with my Seagull 205 RF as well as with my Samsung S3 mobile phone camera.

More pictures to show after the jump.

Street Photo - Snowman by the Red Altar

Snowman by the Red Altar
I was walking across the loading bay area between Peninsula Shopping Center and Funan DigitaLife Mall when I noticed this snowman positioned right besides a red colored Chinese altar. Without hesitation, I took out my phone camera and made a couple of shots. We don't really get by to see such scenario so I think it's worth to capture it before snowman is gone.

I posted the same image on my Facebook page with post and 16x9 pano crop in Snapseed app. Resized in Photo Editor for easy online post. However I did another proper post-process and cropping in Photoshop CS5 and this is what you see above.
