My first day of street photography in Singapore

Singapore

I landed yesterday in Singapore to visit my friends Lisa and Simone. I’ll be here for a week and beside my job I will spend a lot of time taking pictures in the street. Today was my first day and I went to Chinatown. In a few hours I found out three things about this awesome city:

Different perception of personal distance

Singapore
Studying martial arts I learned that every person feels a personal bubble around himself. When someone enters that bubble we feel awkward and we raise up our psychological defenses. The more dense the city, the smaller the bubble. For this reason getting really close to people, while taking pictures in the street, is very easy in Singapore.

Different relationship with food

Singapore
In chinatown the food is everywhere and saying hello to your live crab before his final trip to the kitchen is very common.

People are really open

Singapore
As soon as I raised up my camera to take pictures of his booth, this man started to dance for me and wanted to pose with his roasted duck. I’m so excited about the amazing adventures I’m going to have during the next days in here.
