Just a morning stroll around Jalan Kayu

To my friends who live in Jurong area for the most part of their lives, Jalan Kayu must have been a “birds don’t lay egg” location – a Chinese term used to describe places that are so outskirts that birds do not even want to make their homes there.  But I love Jalan Kayu.  It has good food, good ambience & a good potential for photography.  Alas, much of the place was destroyed by the government when they decided to transform the place into an aerospace hub.  It was pretty sad to see the lushness taken away & replaced by cold large hangars & buildings.  Even the beautiful colonial houses were also partially cleared to make way for these…

These flowers were seen as I stroll along the Yishun Dam leading into the Seletar area.

Used my 24-70mm & a Light Craft Workshop Fader ND Mark II to achieve this popping effect

This was also done with the variable Fader at max power as the it was near noon & the sun was at its height

Spotted this vintage in a colonial house rented by some expatriates.  He has many other vintage cars beside this, but this was outstanding.

Couldn’t resist sneaking in & taking a shot.  anyway, the nearest police post was at least 8 km away.
