Some darker grayscale photos taken at Boat Quay, Singapore. On the spot, there are tourists (Japanese, Thai, name it). These photos are meant to be printed. So I won't actually want to adjust the contrast too much. Some of the photos might look a bit too dark but will come out ok in print (i.e., you will see more of their details on paper).

Window display

Interesting window display in rainy day. A night gown in front, and a semi-naked model behind wearing jean. You would wonder which part of the model is more important for the viewers: the naked half or the the other half, i.e. the jean? The model refuses (or is made to refuse) to be represented in the night gown. She hides behind it as if escaping a social feminine self. She enjoys her wantoness; her delicious escape. But for the viewer, she is coyly showing what must be protected. She keeps a tension between exhibition and prohibition. The jean cleverly compliments the tension, like a vase supporting (and at the same time revealing) a rose in its full but shy exposure.

Orchard crossing

View all 6 photos...
Crossing the road is about going from one end to the other. In between, nothing is tangible. People keep on asking: why does the chicken cross the road? In Singapore, we have our own version: why do people cross the road in Orchard Street? Scholars have quoted Decartes in the post-modern context: I shop, therefore I am. Walking is (or can lead potentially to though unintentionally) shopping. The only time you cannot shop is when you are in the "transition", that is when you are crossing the road. This is when you cannot stop to look and buy.
