    Hello all,

    Just want to say hi to all in this forum, it's great to see a dedicated M43 forum with lots of users & pics & info sharing. :2thumbs:

    I'm from tiny Singapore with a big heart :smile:
    And here we have 2 weather conditions - sunny or rainy. Pretty much temperature and humidity are in the 80-90oF & % (>30oC) in the daytime. We speak mainly English, and Mandarin, & also "Singlish (singaporean english)".

    Been using Oly Pens since EP1 and prior Oly DSLR, love the colors for lazy me, love the IBIS & EVF for manual lens, love the international warranty for the "GAS" bug in me.

    Here's 2 recent Singapore pics taken with E-PL2 & 9-18 to share.

    Busy side of Singapore, CBD Shenton way.

    Thanks for viewing. Have a nice day!

    I remember taking a night pic of Shenton Way when the major highway (can't remember what it's called) first opened years ago. My friend and I were running across traffic (not as heavy back then) with tripods and camera bags just to take a couple of pics. I may be considering a trip back home in October to visit the relatives.

    Thanks Gary!


    Hi turbodieselvw, fellow Singaporean?


    Highway should be east coast parkway (ECP) which passes through Benjamin Sheares Bridge.

    Must be couple decades ago! Singapore CBD skyline has been evolving in 3 years, even for locals it's amazing. The One Fullerton, Marina, Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands stands in front of the Shenton Way.

    A slightly belated welcome to you wonglp from a still cold and wintry New York!

    I think I am in love with your serene Singapore - that is a really lovely image. If you happen to have a website for hosting your photographs, please consider adding it to your signature line.

    Very glad to have you here wonglp!

    Yes, ECP would be it and we hiked up to the apex of the bridge to take the pics. That was when the ECP was just constructed so at least 25 yrs or so ago. Born, grew up, and completed NS in Singapore before moving to Canada where we had over a foot of snow last night.
