A view across the East Coast of Singapore.
My mental image of residential Singapore has always been a curious mix. One picture is of high-rise apartment blocks, with dark stairwells and dingy lifts - Eric Khoo's Singapore, as depicted in Mee Pok Man and 12 Stories, for example.
Another picture is of lush greenery, tree-lined streets, old kopitiams (coffeeshops), and shaded parks. This is the Singapore imaged above, but I somehow wanted it darker, gloomier: the original photo was fairly bright, from which I increased the contrast and lowered the brightness to get what you see above.
