There is a specific reason that I choose to walk through the streets of a foreign city, rather than use a rental car. When you’re on foot, you see much more - and that is vital if you’re the sort of person who always has a camera around your neck.
In late December, I walked several kilometres around Singapore, making the most of a brief stopover. This shot was taken in the area known as Little India. My attention was caught by intricate carving on woodwork displayed in a street-front shop.
I took a closer look and marvelled at the work of the artisan. He smiled broadly and nodded his assent when I asked if I could take some photographs. The detail that I shot here is from a palace-type swing crafted from metal and comfortably cushioned in striped fabric.
I’m guessing it was sold as soon as it was completed and went on display.
