Henderson Waves

At 36 metres above Henderson Road, Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore. It was built to connect the two hills of Mount Faber and Telok Blangah Hill.The bridge has a unique wave-form made up of seven undulating curved steel “ribs” that alternately rise over and under its deck. The curved “ribs” form alcoves that function as shelters with seats within.Slats of yellow balau wood, an all-weather timber found in South-East Asia, are used in the decking. Look out for carvings on the slats marking the height you are at on various points along the bridge.The wave-forms will be lit with attractive LED light from 7pm to 7am daily, giving the bridge an illuminative glow.

Perseid meteor shower to light up night sky for a week

The meteor shower is expected to peak between 12:30 and 3 p.m. Wednesday but sky watchers only can see the meteors in the dark. So sit tight until the sun sets, then look up. You could see up to one meteor a minute. The show should continue for at least a week. Discovered in 1862, the comet is a giant iceberg made up of ice, rock and dust particles that likely has been in orbit for thousands of years. Particles -- about the size of a sesame seed when clustered together -- slowly have been eroding from the comet every time it has approached the sun, leaving a trail of debris that the Earth's orbit intersects once a year.The particles, known as meteoroids, create a meteor shower when they collide with the Earth's atmosphere and burn up, forming fiery streaks across the sky.
A bright meteor glows as much as the brightest stars in the sky. And pay close attention: They zip across the sky at about 132,000 m.p.h., leaving a gazer's sight in a second or two.

Inspired to inspire

I live in Borneo island ( third largest in the world )
and I am a hobbyist photographer.

I love using photos to show a situation or depict a mood

My photo-blog is more photos than anything else
and I hope that these photos would uplift the mood
and invoke some joy for some people

I create positive images from photos and paintings
( could be done by others )
which I selected to awe or impress people

There are images on my blog from myself
and there many from others

What/who inspires me?
Too many to name, I would say many great photographers and artists

No shops but I have two blogs :
