I haven’t been to Singapore in at least ten years. Having seen pictures of the new and modern bay area I was really looking forward to have the opportunity to travel to Singapore and – as mentioned in my last post – take my version of shots seen many times over.
When preparing for Singapore I also checked 500px and other sources for great locations. I stumbled upon a few pics that really did it for me. Many of the pics where by a local Singaporian photographer by the name of Jonathan Danker (http://500px.com/JonathanDanker). When out shooting one night – taking the b/w picture of the downtown skyline with the colored net – I was sitting next to photographer and we started talking about gear (he was using the canon 8 – 15mm fisheye, a lens I would love to call my own). We had a great conversation and I asked him where I can find his work on the internet. He gave me his name but at that time I did not even realize that it was him who I adored on 500px. Only back at the hotel when I checked out his online presence I found out. Amazing how small the world can be at times 😉 I was a bit disappointed that I hadn’t realized who he was right on the spot. I would have liked to get to know Jonathan better. At least here goes a greeting to Jonathan and a big thanks for his inspiring photos on 500px and yet a bigger thanks for telling me the best spot to shoot the wonderful laser show at the bay!
