Reservoir in The City

14

The Marina Barrage forms Singapore's first reservoir in the city. With a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, or one-sixth the size of Singapore, the Marina Reservoir stands as the island’s largest and most urbanized catchment.

With so much to see and do, the colossal architectural masterpiece at the heart of the up-and-coming Marina South district is a whole new experience.

Stroll along the Marina Bridge and watch as water surges into the sea when the crest gates are opened. Take a break at one of the viewing decks overlooking the Marina Reservoir and panoramic cityscape. Head up to the the grass-carpeted Green Roof, an eco-friendly feature that helps lower the building’s temperature so that less energy is used. It is an ideal place to revel in warm sunshine and enjoy kite flying or a picnic with a sweeping 360º view of the Singapore city skyline.

After bathing in the sun, kids can soak in the fun and have a splashing good time at the water play area. Visit the Sustainable Singapore Gallery and learn about Singapore’s efforts and achievements in creating a sustainable environment. Fun and interactive, a tour will fascinate both young and old. As you walk around, don’t forget to appreciate the art pieces of local and international artists that depict the environmental sustainability theme.

    A great gallery! I remember I passed by this place when I went to the airport! And wasn´t this also the place where all the Singapore Lomographers organized the "Project 360" not that long ago?

    A Sunday on Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island")

    The Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island"), also known as "Pearl in the Havel sea," is a world cultural heritage and popular destination for Berliners. Loose peacocks, water buffalos and the magical character of the island were also a reason for me to go and spend one Sunday afternoon there, with my LC-A+ and the LomoChrome Purple film.

    My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.

    LomoLocations: Reno, Nevada

    In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
