This was taken from Mount Faber in Singapore yesterday evening — I wanted very much to repeat some night scene photography that I took with my G3 more than a year ago (this time, with my 300D and better lenses). Alas, the growth of shrubs and trees has been so rapid that they now obstruct the view I managed to get last year. However, I did manage to capture something new this time around.

As usual, the concrete jungle of buildings provided the setting for the shot. Taking this right at dusk, the buildings provided nice lit patterns for the shot. I like the layered effect created by the varying distances of the buildings in the shot, with the bottom left block of flats providing a strong visual anchor for the overall scene. The title of the shot is in Chinese and means literally “Lamplights of ten thousand families”.
