Have you ever thought of going down to the business or financial district in your country for a lomowalk but didn’t, because you thought the area would be very formal and boring? I had the same impression too until I went down to the Central Business District area in Singapore!
There was a public holiday recently so my friends and I decided to go down to the Central Business District to explore since we ran out of ideas of where to shoot. We took the train down to Raffles Place station and started off from there. It was at the heart of the Central Business District and there were plenty of skyscrapers where banks and financial companies are situated in. I saw my friend lying down on the grass patch and aiming her Diana F+ upwards.
I looked up and was surprised by all the interesting geometry formed by the skyscrapers around us! It was fun playing with the different angles at which you point your camera up to snap the skyscrapers with the lovely clouds as the backdrop
If you walk a bit further down, you can also see the Singapore River which empties in Marina Bay, another major landmark in this area. Another landmark in the area is the Raffles Landing Site, the area where it is believed that Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore, first landed. The iconic Fullerton Hotel, which was built in 1928, is also nearby.
The area of the Central Business District is definitely not as boring and formal as you think! Go down to explore it and you will see it in a different light.
