The local restaurant where I had lunch was part of a string of small restaurants. After eating, I did a little impromptu street photography as we walked back to the car. With Canon G7X Mark II in hand, I snapped a couple of photographs.
Singapore has a lively open-air atmosphere that makes it enjoyable to shoot the street. The balmy tropical weather and the architecture are more conducive to active street life. Certainly, photographing here is more exciting than your standard suburban strip mall in the US. Though, I’m sure the exotic element also plays a part.
Quite inexplicably, I had the shutter speed set very slow — 1/30 and 1/60 of a second in good light. Not the best for this kind of photography, but I was lucky that these came out. It’s the kind of mistake I usually don’t make. I wonder if my late nights, jet lag, and travel fatigue played a part. I like those excuses better than just doing sloppy photography.
