Making of a Photograph: Part 9 – Singapore Skyline with Buddha Tooth Relic Temple
This photo of Singapore Skyline with Buddha Tooth Relic Temple was photographed during the week leading up to Chinese New Year in January 2022.
I shot it from a corridor of an HDB (public housing) flat located behind the temple, which is quite a popular photography spot among local photography enthusiasts and even tourists.
In some countries, it might be unthinkable to shoot from such a place (due to privacy laws), but in Singapore, the corridor in an HDB flat is considered a public and shared space, so residents also don’t seem to care at all about the “visitors”. 😅
By the way, the temple lights up only on certain days like Chinese New Year, so the flat attracts a lot of photographers (like me 😅) on such occasions. When you see this flat from the outside, you can spot faces of photographers with tripods on every high floor. 😂 This photo, by the way, was shot from the 12th floor’s corridor.

Thanks, actually it’s East sky. 😅 One day I want to try here at dawn, but might have to stay in a nearby hotel to wake up in time. 😂
I enjoyed your blue hour photos! They have a “stop and enjoy the moment” sort of feeling. Thank you!
Thank you! Yes, there is no rush shooting long exposure photos at blue hour. Just slow down, start the exposure, then stop it after a few minutes. 😀
