Singapore Parliament House

  • Nikon D7000, 35mm f1.8
  • At 35mm, f2, 1/30 seconds, ISO 800. 
  • Manual exposure, center weighted metering, incandescent white balance.
  • Picasa: Straighten.
The Parliament House is the short building behind the palm trees, with the illuminated brown roof. Pretty small by international standards, and not particularly imposing. Could pass off as a museum, embassy or government ministry.

When Parliament is in session, you can see policemen patrolling along the outside of the building. Highlights of the proceedings are broadcast over Mediacorp Channel 5, after the 9:30pm news. I sometimes catch bits of it when I switch on the TV for the 10pm movie.

Skyscrapers behind are on Boat Quay and Shenton Way, the financial district. The Singapore River is between the Parliament and skyscrapers. The skyscraper on the right is UOB Plaza One (United Overseas Bank), which together with the OUB Centre (Overseas Union Bank, now merged with UOB) and Republic Plaza, are the tallest buildings in Singapore.
