The view is just amazing 165 meters above the ground!
One of the highlights of my recent trip to Singapore was soaring up aboard the tallest observation wheel in the world: the Singapore Flyer. The ride was simply exhilirating. A ride costs you SGD 30.00/head but the 30-minute revolution is a fantastic way to top any Singapore visit.
Reaching 42 stories high, it is currently the largest Ferris wheel in the world, with a total height of 165 m (541 ft). This exceeds the Star of Nanchang by 5 m (16 ft) and the London Eye by 30 m (98 ft). Expect to see the glittering Marina Bay and major landmarks of Singapore such as the Esplanade – Theatres by the Bay and the upcoming Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort.
During my evening ride, I really had a blast shooting with my Horizon Perfekt. To capture the amazing city lights, I loaded my camera with Fuji Press 800 film, which produces outstanding nighttime photos.

Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally.
And it all comes down to darkness.
