    Default Chijmes



    The Caldwell House was designed and built by G.D.Coleman in 1840-1841 Rev. J.M. Beurel, founder of the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus, the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd and St Joseph’s Institution, purchased the Caldwell House at August 1852.

    Between 1855 to1892, series of convent buildings were add on due to flourishing of the school. In 1903, a Chapel was added and consecrated in 1904, followed by adding new wings and classrooms for increasing students.

    In 1983, the school was moved to the new premises and the secondary school block was demolished in 1984.

    The remainder of the complex was developed into retail outlets and restaurants and is known as CHIJMES.

    More like a postcard.

    Notice the rooftop appears to be a bit blueish (or my eyes ) , did you use any filters? Or PS touch up?

    Is from A40.

    I used a polarizer and I did some touch up using PS. The dark blue cloud on the right, in fact is dark grey cloud, after using polarizer become dark blue. I took number of shots due to exposure. The left side is sunny, the right side is cloudy, I play around with AF and Spot metering to get a balance in term of exposure. I did not sued tripod for this shot. Normally I only used tripod for night shot.

    I am not an archi student, from engineering.
