JOHOR | Jalan Dhoby

negative0-38-381

The Jalan Dhoby neighbourhood is a gem of a find with its fascinating old buildings and businesses. So glad I popped a Solaris 400 roll into my camera for these. It seemed to take on the harsh afternoon light pretty well.

Around town with Jh

F1000030

When I think of Jh these days, I think back on the chat we had over coffee the last time we met, and it warms me to know that it really is okay that she lives so far away.

We took a walk with our cameras that same day. The above photograph aside, the rest are taken at the Church Of Saints Peter and Paul which was undergoing restoration works when we visited it. Coincidentally, I used the same film when I was here last year.

Church of Saints Peter and Paul

The Church of Saints Peter and Paul stands directly across the 8Q Arts museum which I frequent. It has beginnings linked to the Chinese Catholic community in Singapore , and was gazetted a national monument in 2003. I’ve always found its architecture splendid, so one afternoon, I decided to go pass its gates for a quick peek.

Kampong Buangkok – Part 1

F1000017

(Canon A1)

Kampong Buangkok is the last kampong in Singapore. People lived in villages like that prior to the public housing programme in the 1960s which saw the majority of the population rehoused in flats. (There are awesome virtual tours of the kampong at this website: singaporevr)

This kampong has been on my to-go list for a very long time (in terms of years, actually), so when xy expressed interest in it, I literally jumped at the chance to turn my plan into something concrete. These are some shots taken just outside the kampong. The developing went a little wonky for this roll – if you’d noticed the yellow line across the pictures.
