    Default Help needed for location of quirky and retro places.

    Hi. i m planning a photo shoot and was wondering is there a red brick wall building that dont have too much human traffic passing ?
    or about that little india shoot from asia's next top model, where exactly is it?
    Do feel free to provide more suggestions and link me to any previous thread if this question has already been addressed.

    much thanks!

    How about the old housings near Tiong Bahru Market? Probably you can still find some red brick buildings there.

    just checked out the location and its badly fenced up. the only side of the building which has a clean blank wall (free from windows/ pillars) has a fence in front of it and the path in front of the way is a slanted slope. quite hard to work with. anyone else has any alternatives?

    some old HDB blocks you have a whole red brick wall, Toa Payoh have planty.

    if you want just brick walls in light color, try Queenstown cinema

    Yeah, had that area in mind too. Should be pretty quiet on weekends, esp Sunday morning.

    thanks for the suggestions! found it, loved it. cant believe that something as prominent as this could be right under my nose the whole time. pass by defu and eunos countless times and it never ever occurred to me that the boring industrial area had some quirkiness to it. =)

    Hi guys, i would require your help again. going for a shoot this weekend and would like to know if anyone knows where there is an open blank white wall? doesnt matter the texture of it.

    additionallly, for you whimsical shooters, queenstown cinema is now closed off and will be torn down soon. so the location is no longer an option for the comments above.
