Smile Singapore skyline & city pics

Hi there

Here are some rather recent shots that I'd taken while strolling in town. Enjoy!

1. Filming with a nice backdrop


2. One of the old art-deco skyscrapers


3. UOB Plaza


4. OUB catches the morning rays


5. Imposing Maybank Tower!


6. Grand old building by the river


7. Old shophouses contrast with the modern towers


8. More contrast


9. Details on the shophouse roof



Hope you like them! More to come from me soon

Thanks ryanE

No that is the Sail, a residential project.

The casino site (also under construction), is on the left of the panorama in post #6
