Yet another set of street photographs taken at in-between moments during a family outing at the Singapore Zoo a few months ago.
That’s our friendly and helpful tram driver.
My son loves the pony ride.
I am a very talented photographer – through telepathy, I’ve managed to convince the person in the background to bend a little bit so as to be confluent to the pony handler’s face and shoulder outline.
Here’s the horse carriage driver.
Here’s the horse.
It’s interesting how high contrast monochrome changes things. The photographs look somewhat hard-edged and menacing at times …
Go to the zoo if you’re ever in Singapore. It’s really not so menacing …
The crowd at an animal performance show.
We go to the zoo every time we’re back in Singapore.
So, I’ve seen the performance many times.
Now, instead of looking at the performance, I look at the crowd and think about how to photograph the human exhibits.
I am a very talented photographer – using telepathy, I’ve managed to convince a stranger to stand up so as to create a contrasting element to the crowd.
That’s err… a bird animal creature with two legs and feathers…
I suppose that’s my nod to Gary Winogrand‘s The Animals.
Thanks for reading!

I’ve not been to the zoo since more than a decade ago. Did you go to the night safari? It makes for a nice visit too and offers quite a different experience from the zoo.
Yup! The zoo, the night safari and now the river safari. It’s a triple combo.
Wow! I don’t think I’ve gone on a river safari in Singapore. Enjoy!
telepathic street photographer is unbeatable.
The first image in this series (of the tram operator) is extremely evocative. There’s a certain compression of time at hand, but I’m not sure in which space it is taking place – in me, between me and the photo, the photo itself? My folks have pictures like this from the ’60s when they were resident in the Bahamas. This could easily be from the same decade, couldn’t it?
Well yes, because it’s black and white and looks a bit lo-fi because of the high contrast, it’s associated with the past. Thanks for dropping by!
