Waters coming closer
The waters and lies
I get so high, I close my eyes
Like I may die, and I won’t come down
Side Note: That bassline is so dope.
Side note: I’ve always loved how the intro starts with such a brash guitar riff.
Take these bricks and build it up to the greatest heights.
We will knock them down
For the week, 29 February – 6 March
I’ve been trying to get out of the project’s rut by enforcing some added discipline, but it may not be enough because I’m being confronted with the lack of inspiration. However, one thing that did surface from this last week has been location plays a part in the creative process. Perhaps I’ve been looking in the wrong places (ie. Not moving out of my comfort zone), and so this week I made a concerted effort to go to a place that I’d been noticing around my neighbourhood, and taking photos in this new place was both refreshing and invigorating.
Notes from this series
- The primary location was this open space opposite where I live. Close by is a port, and the location where I took the photos was only recently developed, and so there was a lot of empty space. I took it on a Sunday morning at 730am, so there really wasn’t anyone around as well.
- I really enjoy the desolation and quiet. I made a conscious effort to try the iPhone’s faux paronamic stitching tool, and while it’s not perfect, it’ll suffice.
- I wish I took a better picture of that chair. It’ll be appearing in a friend’s music video some time in April or May.

She wanted nothing and I delivered
For the week, 22 – 28 February
This week, I went to the Esplanade to watch Nick play a set with Jaime Wong. It was a rather intimate set with very minimal instrumentation, and it was nice to see a decent turnout for the gig. Nick’s a close friend of mine, and I wish him every success in his craft and endeavours.
I also went to check out the Open Farm Community Social Market over the weekend. It was nice but… it just felt a bit off centre also. I mean, I have tremendous respect for the people who were there to sell the produce, but maybe it still hasn’t sunk in that Singapore is a place where we’re known for domestic produce or products. To that end, it is encouraging that something is happening in Singapore, and I hope to see more homegrown creativity and entrepreneurship being celebrated.
Notes from this series
– Not a very inspired week.
– My favourite photo would be the top-down shot from over the balcony that frames some cafe tables and chairs as well. Composition-wise, I’m happy with the variety of shapes in the photograph.
