Singapore Visitors Centre, Orchard Road

There are a few Singapore Visitors Centres. For example, there's one in each of the three Changi Passenger Terminals (1, 2, and 3). Good place to get free city maps (also available at most hotel lobbies). They are run by the Singapore Tourism Board (http://www.yoursingapore.com/content/traveller/en/plan-your-trip/travel-essentials/singapore-visitors-centres.html).

This one is in the heart of Orchard Road, near The Heeren and Centrepoint. It has been here for years already, but I can't help thinking that it's only going to be around until someone buys that piece of land and builds a shopping centre.

Entrance is at the right. On the left is Duck & Hippo, a city tours company (http://sgsnaps.blogspot.com/2011/02/duck-and-hippo-sightseeing-bus.html) .
  • D7000, 35mm 1.8
  • At f2, ISO 800, 1/30 seconds. Quite flat subject, so don't need much depth of field. Set f2 to allow lower ISO to be used and get less noise. Set shutter to 1/30 seconds, about minimum speed to get decent photos with the 35mm (not much margin for error, need to hold the camera steady), increase ISO until exposure is okay.
  • Manual exposure, center-weighted metering, auto white balance
  • Picasa: Crop 
Black letters look faded, but that's how they look in real life.
