Singapore at Night

July 2, 2011

This will be a short-ish post – not because the Singapore nights aren’t spectaular, but rather due to my limited skills as a photographer.

Singapore rests nearly square on the equator.  Nightfall comes suddenly and with only a few minutes variation, irrespective of the time of year.  There are but two seasons here – wet and dry.  Highs are in the high 80’s/low 90s, and lows are in the upper 70’s – every day.

To be Singaporean is to come out at night when temps are more comfortable.  Quite frankly, the city is as spectacular at night as it is during the noonday sun.

We’d gone to Boat Quay for some dinner, looking for a dim sum joint we’d seen during the day.  Hawkers attempted to entice us to sit with offers of free beer.

We didn’t find the right place – but we did have a front row seat to the light show.

Across the river – the Marina Bay Sands and the Fullerton hotel.

Closer to the restaurant – the Financial Center.

Water’s reflections mesmerizing.

Ephemeral.  that’s the word which came to mind for the next pic.

How are you gonna keep them down on the farm after they’ve seen Paris?
