Exploring MacRitchier Reservoir, Singapore

2

My colleagues and I love spending time outdoors with nature, and for our latest outing, we chose MacRitchier Reservoir. A few of us have not been there before and we would like to explore one of the quiet places in this city.

.

The MacRitchier Reservoir is Singapore’s oldest reservoir. The reservoir was completed in 1868 by impounding water from an earth embankment, and it’s a great place for morning and evening walks or strolls along the water’s edge.

There are boardwalks skirting the edge of the scenic MacRitchie Reservoir, and walking trails through the forest. The mirror-surfaced reservoir is surrounded by a 12km stretch, and it takes approximately five hours to finish, but we had taken more than five hours to complete the whole walking.

It is a nice place to relax — you can either jog, run, or take a slow walk in the many trails in the park. Before you start your journey, prepare plenty of water to drink, and wear good walking shoes and casual wear.

Although, be aware: you will encounter some wild monkeys on the trail so do not feed, do not disturb, and stay away from them.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    Imperfection Is In Everything We Do: A Talk With Adriano Sodré

    Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Sonja started her analog adventures during her teenage years. She took her first film photographs when she was 13 and has been in love with the magic of the process since. Her idea of a perfect day involves developing film rolls while listening to jazz and having a cup of tea in between. In this interview, she recalls about her experience with her first Lomography camera, a Holga 120 CFN.
